Charley, On the Waterfront, Thames, Marlon Brando
I watch as the sun goes down As it sinks in her eyes I've seen it a thousand times As it brings on the night Yeah it brings on the night She tells me not to fight. CHORUS ----------- Charley, I could have been somebody I could have been someone I could have been someone I could have been someone. ----------- Well I'm sick of the factory now The grinding machines I could leave but I don't know how I just drift down stream Dampening screams With a fistful of dreams. CHORUS We gaze up at Angel's Wharf Sand slips through my fingers Time is a relentless force Where memory lingers Guess we got to move on Now we made ourselves one. CHORUS
