    Lyrics

    Down by the harbourside
    A boat is fastened by a length of rope.
    It was a perfect match,
    Dreaming of escape,
    Feeling almost detached.
    Look beneath the waves -
    The seabirds diving down into black water.
    The morning bells begin,
    Schoolchildren chant and spin.
    A length of rope
    Below a hanging tree,
    Like cruel secrets some of us turn out to be.
    Should our love increase,
    We are all released like statues from marble.
    While in a prison yard,
    They're taking turns to guard
    A length of rope.
    Are you too weak to fight?
    Picking up a thread and then stretching it tight.
    Look beneath the waves -
    The seabirds diving down into black water.
    Still our love increased,
    We are all released like statues from marble.
