Lyrics

Late glow on an early winter evening in Dockland
with my ship of dreams moving easily across the sound
Reminiscence is weighting me down with a vengeance
tide water so deep I think I'm going to drown

But in the wink of an eye I am rising above the affliction
In the wink of an eye I am come back in from the cold
I don't even have to try and I'm gone out of here without notice
gone out of Dockland without a care in the world

It didn't hit me when I met you coming out of the shambles
It didn't hit me when you took me to the summer field
I didn't flinch when you told me that you'd get what you wanted
I never had what it takes to have a heart of steel

But in the wink of an eye I am rising above the affliction
in the wink of an eye I am come back in from the cold
I didn't even have to try and I'm gone out of here without notice
I'm gone out Dockland without a care in the world
gone out of Dockland

And yes I loved you the time that is was
and yes you may rip me whenever you want

So it goes on a crystal clear morning in Dockland
and heaven knows if I'll ever live to love again
Struck down by the kiss of an angel in limbo
laid low by the act of the going

But in the wink of an eye I am rising above the affliction
in the wink of an eye I am come back in from the cold
I didn't even have to try and I'm gone out of here without notice
gone out of Dockland without a care in the world
I'm gone out of Dockland without a care in world
