Take a walk down memory lane with me
Past a watermelon stand on the way
Thinking I had everything we'd need on
Martha's Foolish Ginger

You were late, how could I forget
What you said the part about the
Love taking over your life was
Not your plan

If those harbor lights had just been
A half a mile inland, who knows
What I would have done
If those harbor lights had just been
A half a mile inland, who knows
What I would have done

Through the cliffs out of the Bay I went
From the starboard side I could black my
Visions and my passions they
Keep me awake

If those harbor lights had just been
A half a mile inland, who knows
What I would have done
If those harbor lights had just been
A half a mile inland, who knows
What I would have done

A familiar voice, high surprise
I've been searching trying to find you
I couldn't speak my hands reached
For Martha's Foolish Ginger

We talked until the moon came up
About how life without love
Isn't worth very much then
I played this song

If those harbor lights had just been
A half a mile inland, who knows
What I would have done
If those harbor lights had just been
A half a mile inland, who knows
What I would have done
What I would have done
What I would have done

"Memories that we have yet" you said
"To make like our Burning Bed"
Love, don't mistake that it wasn't safe
on Martha's Foolish Ginger
