Kitty Hawk Nights


Kitty Hawk nights
Looking up at the stars
Lonely moments
Wondering where you are
Keeping to my thoughts
As the moon begins to wane
Silently I stand my watch
Pacific waters are my bane


Fell Out Of Another Sailor Bar

Fell out of another sailor bar

Pacific islands; dripping with sweat

The emotionally desperate & the forever lonely

‘Twas never a more perfectly matched set

A pocketful of money & nothing else to do

Looking for Salvation under the scarce shade

Nothing found but stale tobacco scents

A few more coins to avoid this here blade

A different life at the world’s end

Not used to walking upon the steady rock

Enjoy this time of watched freedom

Best stumble back before the end of the clock
