lyrics

The shops are all boarded up and covered in dust
And there's a burned out car half way down New Hope Road
I wander out in the afternoon
And I sit on the sand and wonder where to go

And I look out at the sea
And down the road I came
I don't know what it was
That I thought I did believe
But darling I was a fool to leave

I fell to picturing lands so wide
But now my world's just gotten so small
In the old tavern on the hill you always stay little bit more
'cause you know loneliness sits patiently outside the door

And I look out at the sea
And down the road I came
I don't know what it was
That I thought I did believe
But darling I was a fool to leave

I keep thinking of the night when I first met you
And how our eyes met when you walked through the door
And your gentle ways, the light in your smile
A girl to drop everything for

But now I look out at the sea
And down the road I came
I don't know what it was
That I thought I did believe
But darling I was a fool to leave
