On The Border Lyrics

Artist: Al Stewart

"LYRICSLRC.COM"
[02:13.94] The fishing boats go out across the evening water
[02:18.33] Smuggling guns and arms across the Spanish border
[02:22.71] The wind whips up the waves so loud
[02:24.93] The ghost moon sails among the clouds
[02:27.17] Turns the rifles into silver on the border
[02:38.64] On my wall the colours of the maps are running
[02:42.94] From Africa the winds they talk of changes coming
[02:47.47] The torches flare up in the night
[02:49.62] The hand that sets the farms alight
[02:51.67] Has spread the word to those who're waiting on the border
[02:58.92] In the village where I grew up
[03:00.99] Nothing seems the same
[03:03.14] Still you never see the change from day to day
[03:07.46] And no one notices the customs slip away
[03:24.16] Late last night the rain was knocking at my window
[03:27.87] I moved across the darkened room and in the lampglow
[03:32.82] I thought I saw down in the street
[03:35.34] The spirit of the century
[03:37.88] Telling us that we're all standing on the border
[03:43.83] In the islands where I grew up
[03:45.86] Nothing seems the same
[03:48.09] It's just the patterns that remain
[03:50.10] An empty shell
[03:52.88] But there's a strangeness in the air you feel too well
[04:08.76] The fishing boats go out across the evening water
[04:12.76] Smuggling guns and arms across the Spanish border
[04:17.39] The wind whips up the waves so loud
[04:19.99] The ghost moon sails among the clouds
[04:21.82] Turns the rifles into silver on the border
[04:28.88] On the border
[04:33.45] On the border
[04:38.16] On the border
