Departure Bay

歌詞

The fading scent of summertime

Arbutus trees and Firs

 

The glistening of rain-soaked moss

 

Going to the Dairy Queen at dusk

 

Down narrow roads

 

In autumn light

 

The salt air and the sawmills

 

And the bars are full of songs and tears

 

To the passing of the tugboats

 

And people with their big ideas

 

I just get home

 

And then I leave again

 

It's long ago and far away

 

Now we're skimming stones

 

And exchanging rings

 

There's scattering and sailing from departure bay

 

The house was bare of Christmas lights

 

It came down hard that year

 

Outside in our overcoats

 

Drinking down to the bitter end

 

Trying to make things right

 

Like my mother did

 

Last year we were laughing

 

We sang in church so beautifully

 

Now her perfume's on the bathroom counter

 

And I'm sitting in the back pew crying

 

I just get home

 

And then I leave again

 

It's long ago and far away

 

Now we're skimming stones

 

And exchanging rings

 

There's scattering and sailing from departure bay

 

A song plays on the gramophone

 

And thoughts turn back to life

 

We took the long way to get back

 

Like driving over the Malahat

 

Now a seaplane drones

 

And time has flown

 

I won't miss all the glamour

 

While my heart is beating and the lilacs bloom

 

But who knew when I started

 

That I'd find a love and bring him home

 

Just get me there

 

And one we will stay

 

A long time off and far away

 

Now we're skimming stones

 

And exchanging rings

 

We're scattering and diving in departure bay
