Do you ever think of me don't know why I care
Wishing for something that's no longer there
Sadly my memory gives me no choice
You could have been Hazey Jane or a girl named Joyce,
To escape from the past at Melancholy Bay
It seems so dark here far from the sun's rays
Sitting here alone wondering how long I must pay,
Another evening fit for a few glasses of rum
Only way to get through this is if I stay numb
Melancholy Bay is where that sound comes from,
Waves cover the sand bars stretching beyond the shore
Little do sailors know they're knocking on death's door
I never used to feel this way what can I say?
I'm locked in eternity here on Melancholy Bay,
I used to have my plans now I'm living day to day
There are several unknown things here at play
Sometimes I just have to stop and pray
Living here in isolation at Melancholy Bay,
Now I'm reduced to suffering on bended knee
From the cold waters I hear her calling me
Perhaps I belong below the waters of the sea,
It seems tragically silly wouldn't you agree?
There's no time for tea and sympathy
Can't even find the shade of a Joshua tree
Oh my God what's happening to me?
The wind seems awful chilly and the sky is gray
Should have left this place long ago without a delay
Somethings never change I think's it's safe to say
Especially when you're in exile on Melancholy Bay.
