Deptford Shore

by Matt Dolphin Amateur

SONG LYRICS

Gold on the Deptford Shore
Lent by the evermore
And there will never be enough of this life (x2)

Ripples and shadow play
Moments passing away
And there will never be enough of this life (x2)

As our crests fall
Gawky and still undersold
Could we let loose our hold
On the marvellous haul of this life

This is how it begins
Entropy’s tick kicks in
And there will never be enough of this life (x2)

Precipitous afternoon
I’d better tell you soon
That there will never be enough of your love (x2)

Late August sun
Weary and still undersung
We’ll pass the baton on
In this flush of new blood and new life

And the seagulls call time on the Deptford Shore
And the waters make light of the Deptford Shore
As the day gives way
Late on the Deptford Shore

DESCRIPTION
Hymn to embracing the transience of life and love. With thanks to Jon Clayton, engineering, cello, bass, guitar; Kate Arnold, violin; Stephen Gilchrist, drums
