​Kathleen

This song is by Richard Clapton and appears on the album Solidarity (1984).

Clapton-Delandro

Down on the waterfront,
In the haze of the neon lights,
Kathleen's staring into the mirror,
Like she's looking back into her life,
There isn't one thing she wouldn't give,
Just to get up and sail away,
Everyone's chasing their own special dream,
Everyone's trying to escape;
Kathleen - there'll come a time,
There's a light on the water,
Gonna sail out tonight,
The fog's rolling in
You can hear the horn blow,
Your ship's coming in
From the Barbary Coast.
Maybe there'll come a time,
When the strife and the fighting will end,
And Kathleen's sailing into the harbour,
To pick up the pieces again,
Whispering voices out on the wind,
That drift through the night on the Bay,
Everyone's chasing their own special dream,
Everyone's trying to escape;
Kathleen - there'll come a time,
There's a light on the water,
Gonna sail out tonight,
The fog's rollin' in,
You can hear the horn blow,
Your ship's coming in
From the Barbary Coast.
