Standing...
on the edge of the quay
no lights flashing
on the water for me
fog in my mind
darkens in my eyes
silently screaming
for a distant sound
ripple river yellow--
rising for a breath
of breeding and drowns
stillness overcome me
in the night

listen...
to the rising water moan

Chorus:
I'm waiting
waiting, for the nightboat
I'm waiting
waiting, for the nightboat

Shadows all through me
shudder away
echo me, echo me...
am I alone,
or is the river alive?
cuz it echoes me, echoes me--
echoes me...

(chorus x2)

I'm waiting for the nightboat...
