Richard Clapton - Deep Water lyrics

rate me

We used to go down to the beach at night

fireflies dancing in the promenade light.

Ah those rock 'n' roll bands used to really swing

and I'd do the foxtrot with sweet Christine

Speaking to me with her gentle hands

fly on down to wonderland


Deep water

I'm caught up in its flow

if I'm in over my head

I'd be the last to know

Deep water

Deep water

They closed down the doors to the Tropedeiro

and I came back looking just like a ghost.

Posters were scattered all over the stairs

Nobody reads them, nobody cares.

Kids are retired when they reach 21

really just ain't my idea of fun



Sittin' out on the Palm Beach road

I'm so drunk and the car won't go.

My crazy eyes keep looking out to sea.

Sunday drivers are cruisin' around

wish they'd all go back to town

What the hell do they expect to find?

Sure as hell ain't peace of mind!


Deep water


Hold on

Hold on now
