Dave Sills: vocals, acoustic guitar

Lyrics

Cold glow of street lights shine down On this broken town Wind blows yesterday’s papers Across the broken ground Out past the strip shows and transient hotels And all the liquor stores A congregation of ragged souls Searching for something more A Salvation Army band plays out of tune For the lost and lonely to dance with the moon Somewhere down on the waterfront Everyone’s looking for clues Somewhere down on the waterfront They’re waiting until the light shines true In the distance ships drift by While wind whistles through air Blows past just like time Carrying silent prayer Souls stir in the breeze As the waves lap at the shore Trying to mend second-hand hearts Bought from the rag and bone store Broken and shattered, half-beating hearts Can be put back together but you still see scars Somewhere down on the waterfront Everyone’s looking for clues Somewhere down on the waterfront They’re waiting until the light shines true The keys that you hold don’t unlock any doors You scream and shout and you cry - what for? Take those troubles out of your head Throw ‘em like stones down by the water’s edge A Salvation Army band plays out of tune For the lost and lonely to dance with the moon Somewhere down on the waterfront Everyone’s looking for clues Somewhere down on the waterfront They’re waiting until the light shines true written by Dave Sills published by Dave Sills (ASCAP) (c) 1994, (p) 2003, all rights reserved original version appears on True Fiction (WSR 001)
