Switch, Switch 1988
muziek J.Hendriks/E.Jansz


so tired of working in the harbour
sitting and thinking wondering why
watching the waves on the water
I see the seagulls fly

I left my home for the city
with a nickel in my hand
said goodbye to my mom and dad
and here I stand at childhood’s end

standing on a pier by the ocean
I’m taking my time see the ships come in
trying to define this emotion
nothing to lose and so much to win

I feel no regret and no sorrow
I’m stripped to the bone but I don’t care
yesterday’s gone and I’m facing tomorrow
and maybe I will meet you there

I know I can make it
deep down inside
I know for sure
even this goodbye
is just a new start
