FADING AWAY (Gordon Lightfoot) As recorded Gordon Lightfoot 1993 I was at the breakwall I was lookin' at the sea In back of an eight ball In some misery. There on the horizon Stood a mighty ship of fools They were headed into the harbour With all their broken rules. Whenever I'm feelin' lonely I can just pick up the phone Or I can go to the movies Or just stay at home alone. They're better off to be someplace That's a good long way from home. Anyway I can lose myself The dawn is breakin' I'm hesitatin' I'm fading away, fading away. They sailed right up to meet me I said what's it all about Please try to excuse me We can work things out. If you've ever wondered If that mighty ship is real Let me tell ya 'bout it brother It was something you could feel. Whenever I'm feeling lonely I let twilight set the tone Or I can go to the movies Or just stay at home alone. They're better off to be someplace That's a good long way to roam. Ain't living high on the hog right now Dawn is breakin' I'm hesitatin' I'm fading away, fading away. One more day on The calendar in my mind I am down around the breakwall Puttin' in some time. The whole ship of fools Has gotten safely under way And I was proud to be a part of What it was they had to say. Whenever I'm feelin' lonely I can just pick up the phone Or I can go to the movies Or just stay at home alone. They're better off to be someplace That's a good long piece from home. Anyway I can lose myself Dawn is breakin' I'm hesitatin' I'm fading away, fading away. Fading away... Fading away. (Transcribed by David Story - March 2013)
