(M & J Schaub)

Once this was a shipyard
Now it is a graveyard
But sometimes in the evening
I see the ghosts of ships still passing by

Once this was a place where
Dreams flew in the grey air
Somewhere on this cold quay
Fathers kissed their wives and kids goodbye

The fishermen went sailing
For long forgotten treasures
How ever high the waves they’d take the fight
And as the sun was setting
And darkness fell around them
They thought they saw Atlantis in the night
But it was only harbour lights

Once this was forever
Now it is forgotten
People worked and died here
But now it’s only memories fading out

May happiness and fortune
Guide you ´cross the ocean
A bottle cracked, the future seemed so bright
And as they raised their glasses
And drank to pleasant journeys
They thought they saw Manhattan in the night
But it was only harbour lights

Once this was a shipyard
Now it is a graveyard
Bur sometimes in the evening
I see the ghosts of ships still passing by
See the ghosts of ships still passing by
