This song is by Tygers Of Pan Tang and appears on the album The Cage (1982).

The shallow waters lopped upon the rocks
The shadows moved as the moon shone down
I saw your features as plain as the day
I heard your voice in sound of the waves

The mighty tides breathe in and out again
I heard the surf crashing closer
And in that moment you were there by my side
As if the years had never flown past

That was a long time ago
I don't want to dwell in the past
That was a long time ago
Now I must escape from your ghost

The minutes pass, the illusion still holds
My fingers running down my spine
And in the east I see the first of dawn
And with the light I feel you slip away

(Rep chorus)
