Charley, On the Waterfront, Thames, Marlon Brando

Charley

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
