DIRE STRAITS lyrics : "Down To The Waterline"

Sweet surrender on the quayside
You remember we used to run and hide
In the shadow of the cargoes I take you one at a time

And we're counting all the numbers down to the waterline

Near misses on the dogleap stairways

French kisses in the darkened doorways
A foghorn blowing out wild and cold
A policeman shines a light upon my shoulder


Up comes a coaster fast and silent in the night
Over my shoulder all you can see are the pilot lights

No money in our jackets and our jeans are torn
Your hands are cold but your lips are warm


She can see him on the jetty where they used to go
She can feel him in the places where the sailors go
When she's walking by the river and the railway line

She can still hear him whisper
Let's go down to the waterline
