​The Fisherman

This song is by David Knopfler and appears on the album Cut the Wire (1986).

Thinking you've put it all behind you
You came looking for your brand new start
As though nothing could remind you
But you can't betray your helpless heart

And now you find it's getting harder
You start believing all love's in vain
No he never meant to harm you
He never meant to cause such pain

Oh the fisherman, oh the fisherman
Reflections in a pool

You came upon her harbour
They were laughing singing: "Here comes the fool"
But throw your bread upon the waters
You may find your nets are full

Aye they gathered in the harbour
Sang: "Thy will be done"
Perhaps they never meant to harm her
But they came to take her only son.

Oh the fisherman, oh the fisherman
Reflections in a pool
