  • Something I never knew
    In silence I'd hear you
    And a boat lies waiting
    Still your clouds all flaming
    That old time easy feeling

    What I lost was an ocean
    Now I'm drifting through without you
    In this sad barcarolle

    What I lost was an ocean
    And I'm rolling right behind you
    In this sad barcarolle

    It rocks you like a cradle
    It rocks you to the core
    You'll sleep like a baby
    As it knocks at death's door Writer/s: DAVID JON GILMOUR, POLLY ANNE SAMSON
