Rafferty, Gerry - The Waters Of Forgetfulness Lyrics




Born on the wind, cooled by the rain
Lost in a dream, no memory remains
Under the clouds, far from the sun
Tied to a wheel, since time has begun.

And we sleep the live long night
As part of the river we suffer together so far from the light
And we gaze the live long day
Into the waters of forgetfulness, yeah yeah yeah. yeah yeah yeah.

Tossed on the sea, still in a dream
Looks like a war, it's not what it seems
Ruled by the moon, pulled by the tide
Nowhere to run and nowhere to hide.

And we sleep the live long night
As part of the river we suffer together so far from the light
And we gaze the live long day
Into the waters of forgetfulness, yeah yeah yeah. yeah yeah yeah.

And we sleep the live long night
As part of the river we suffer together so far from the light
And we gaze the live long day
Into the waters of forgetfulness, yeah yeah yeah. yeah yeah yeah.

Rafferty, Gerry The Waters Of Forgetfulness Comments
  1. Rob Schock

    It always seems to hit so hard when some beautiful, talented, sensitive soul leaves us! I feel so ripped off, somehow. But I'm happy for Gerry. He's in such a better place! His talent will be missed!

  2. Airmo

    A true legend

  3. hesselvanurk

    Should have been on "Collected"
    Very poetic too
    Makes one think of the very short time we have on this side
    of the River Jordan

  4. Dr Pado

    His music never dies

  5. Gene V Rocks

    R.I.P Gerry,so great music you did.

  6. David Cook

    Such a shame he didn't win his battle. R.I.P.

  7. David Cook

    Good song (love the bass playing and Gerry's voice is so rich.) I bought his Over My Head album on cd back in '95 but i lost it quite a few years ago (long story). Yeah it was an enjoyable album, some new originals like this along with a few Stealers Wheel covers and also an excellent Lennon cover as i recall, Out The Blue from his Mind Games album. I saw Mr Rafferty in concert in '93. Such a shame about his current health problems, he's been battling the demon drink for years. Get well soon.
