And the streetlights they were flickering
Outside rows of quiet homes
As the doors were shut and bolted
And the sea whispered a drone
But down the backstreets and the alleys
Ran a girl of twenty one
Until she crept into the stable
Where she met the farmer’s son

And with nothing to his name
Except the girl he said he loved
She’d bring clothes and food and matches
Until days had turned to months
For he’d stole and squandered money
Saw another take the blame
He cried wolf once too many
And shamed his own father’s name
But he said

'We’ll take to the sea
And I will row us to another shore
Without you there on the water
I’ll stay the weak man
I’ll never be more’

And so the morning of the next
She fled towards the harbour wall
Set a note down to her mother
Locked the door and left it all
But as her eyes skimmed on the water
Her boat was left untied
Her lover gripped the oars and there he left
Upon the tide

And dark, dark was the day
She walked back the fool
The girl, the girl who cried
For the boy who cried wolf
