Take a walk down memory lane with me
Past a watermelon stand on the way
Thinking I had everything we’d need
on Martha’s Foolish Ginger
You were late
How could I forget what you said-
the part about that
“Love taking over your life”
was not your plan

If those harbour lights had just been a half a mile inland
who knows what I would have done
If those harbour lights had just been a half a mile inland
who knows what I would have done

Through the cliffs
out of the Bay I went
From the starboard side
I could black my visions and my passions-
They keep me awake

If those harbour lights had just been a half a mile inland
who knows what I would have done
If those harbour lights had just been a half a mile inland
who knows what I would have done

A familiar voice
“Hi. Surprise.
I’ve been searching trying to find you”
I couldn’t speak
my hands reached for Martha’s Foolish Ginger
We talked until the moon came up
About how life without love
isn’t worth very much
Then I played this song

If those harbour lights had just been a half a mile inland
who knows what I would have done
If those harbour lights had just been a half a mile inland
who knows what I would have done
what I would have done
what I would have done

“Memories that we have yet” you said
“To make like our Burning Bed…”
Love, don’t mistake that it wasn’t safe
on Martha’s Foolish Ginger.
