lyrics

Idle cranes

There she goes, my beautiful life
Over the horizon, just look at those lights
What it must be, on that fine ship
With the hustlers and dealers, and the idle rich

Gets cold in winter, but we have a roof
Took out a loan, but it was not bulletproof
Look out the window, there goes the bank
Got our own car, but ain’t got the crank

Well get it wrong or get it right my friend
These idle cranes do not mark the end
Road is long, river writes in reams
These idle cranes do not build our dreams

There she goes, my beautiful life
In a puff of smoke, in a flash of light
Throw her a kiss, let out a sigh
I‘m not crying, I got ash in my eye

Sweet bird of youth, I had you in my hand
And then you flew away, so far across the land
Waltzing in the thistles, soaking up rain
Standing in the shallows with the idle cranes

Well get it wrong or get it right my friend
These idle cranes do not mark the end
Road is long, river writes in reams
These idle cranes do not build our dreams
