Ellis Island

From the corner of my eye I see a tear rolling down
At the time I couldnt tell whose tear it was
If it was mine I should be glad
That I still function in this cage
But if its yours it only makes me more lost
To see a tear rolling down
To see a tear rolling down

This is the last call for Ellis Island
These are the last words Im ever gonna hear you say
So goodbye, babe
Goodbye, babe.

I hear sweethearts whisper their undying love
Above the noise on the quay their voices rise
They must have something so strong in the face of such change
That they can promise and promise all night
Oh, their undying love, hear their undying love

Oh, what you wouldnt give to be down on the pier once again
Far away from the cries of this war-weary horde
Time up there in the clouds must be hard to endure
When your hearts unsure

Its like a knife in my gut knowing youre taking leave
I feel Im sentenced to a death without appeal
I can pretend its all a dream
And what Im seeing will disappear
But the end I can see is all too real
Knowing youre taking leave
Knowing youre taking leave
