Well the old haunts ain't the same since you left town
and I miss you hanging round
from time to time I've found
Are you happy on the shores of that dry land?
In the sun and on the sand?
'cause I could use some company
or just a guiding hand

But all I got is a looming history
Of troubled thoughts and crying eyes to see
out of windows on the pisspoor side of town
Boarded up and rubble bound
And I know what's coming down

When the harbor lights a beacon on the sea
Will the saints deliver me into the lap of luxury?
'cause in my mind it's always gold and evergreen
But nothin' ever works
the way I plan these days it seems

Well I wish I could steer clear of you somehow
Mend my ways and settle down
But I'm restless and unbound
and darlin' all I ever want is time
with you by my side
and there's no use in trying to stem
the turning of the tide

'Though it seems you have a waning sympathy
for troubled minds and rakish men like me
And it's a heart attack to feel as though disowned
And I'll clamor, piss and moan
until I'm sinking like a stone

But when the harbor lights a beacon on the sea....
