​The Water Will Be Deep

This song is by The Cats and appears on the album Home (1973).

Original video
I've never seen the water run so quietly
I've never seen the island quite so close
My eyes are too long, or my arms are too short
'Cause I really thought that I could almost reach
The perfect body on the other beach

I'd like to try to walk up to the other side
I know it can, it has been done before
Maybe even I can fly if I try
'Cause I really want myself so much to reach
The perfect body on the other beach

The water will be deep when you take it for a walk
Yes, I know but how did he do it then
The sky will be too high when you're headin' for a flight
Maybe you are right and I'm only drunk again, yes again

The water will be deep when you take it for a walk
Yes, I know but how did he do it then
The sky will be too high when you're headin' for a flight
Maybe you are right and I'm only drunk again

I've never seen the water run so quietly
I've never seen the island quite so close, so close
My eyes are too long, or my arms are too short
'Cause I really thought that I could almost reach
The perfect body on the other beach

The perfect body on the other beach
