Ellis Island

Noel Brazil
From the corner of my eye I see a tear rolling down At the time I couldn't tell whose tear it was If it was mine I should be glad That I still function in this cage But if it's yours it only makes me more lost To see a tear rolling down To see a tear rolling down This is the last call for Ellis Island These are the last words I'm ever gonna hear you say So goodbye, babe Goodbye, babe. I hear sweethearts whisper their undying love Above the noise on the quay their voices rise They must have something so strong in the face of such change That they can promise and promise all night Oh, their undying love, hear their undying love This is the last call for Ellis Island These are the last words I'm ever gonna hear you say So goodbye, babe Goodbye, babe. Oh, what you wouldn't give to be down on the pier once again Far away from the cries of this war-weary horde Time up there in the clouds must be hard to endure When your heart's unsure It's like a knife in my gut knowing you're taking leave I feel I'm sentenced to a death without appeal I can pretend it's all a dream And what I'm seeing will disappear But the end I can see is all too real Knowing you're taking leave Knowing you're taking leave This is the last call for Ellis Island These are the last words I'm ever gonna hear you say So goodbye, babe Goodbye, babe
