Somethings they change, the trade dried up hard
As a fishermen then with that money stretched well to far
She left just last night, saying the cage has grown thick at the joints
I spend all my time at the harbour point
I say is that a crime it reminds me of a simpler time
Cornwall was young both youth on our sides
And never a grey day ,yet somethings the change
yes they change,
with time.

So leave now my love, with that last kiss
you walk on eggs shells a true taste of bliss
So i sat by’e harbour and the duchy screamed my name
As we watch the last young man fish out what’e can
And i tell’e they won’t stop, till the last pennies caught
I know they won’t stop
Cause its not a young man game , its just the young mans turn
On our grey day

So i tell’e somethings changed but i think it might be me
This modern time bares nothing ta me
So i tell’e somethings changed and i think it might be me
This modern time it see’s me on my knees
It see’s me on my knees

You see I’ve worked off these docks for most my life
It supported a family, gave purpose to my life
You see its a generation thing i followed my families way
For the very blood thats flows through my veins
See you can catch yourself caught dreaming away of those days
Perk up and you’ll find your in the same place
But this day its drawn down into an erry close
It will wash the young smell from beneath your nose

So what i sight this must be, to still see me perched at this point
Waiting for the tide to shallow in the night
And i light rain it falls down on my face
This is it
This time
a decision must be made.
