Let's go down to the sound tonight Tide is low and we can walk on water Reel me in under that starry light Just like the fisherman's daughter
Baby when the bands and the barkers go home They say that Venus she rises From out of the foam She dances on air and laughs at the moon And watches young lovers in fiery dunes
So are you willing to wait for the miracle Willing to wait it through Are you willing to wait for the miracle Or don't you believe they're true?
There's an old man sitting by the side of the pier He's got his cross and his camera And his bottle of beer He just sits all day and all through the night Praying for a vision or a heavenly light
'Cause he's willing to wait for the miracle Willing to wait it through He's willing to wait for the miracle What else is he gonna do? What else is he gonna do?
Now me I don't need no heavenly sign 'Cause I got the water and the wine So baby please let your lovelight shine 'Cause we're all gonna meet our maker Sometime
That's why I'm willing to wait for the miracles I'm willing to wait them through I'm willing to wait for the miracles But I just can't wait -- for you Just can't wait for you Let's go down to the sound tonight And walk on water Walk on water Walk on water
