Docklands

YouTube

Papa says… there are clothes to wash
Sister says… brush your hair
You’ll go down… to the laundromat
Maybe your sister is there
Father says… when you’re young like this…
Things can seem… pretty bad
Let’s get out… and walk by the river

And there are people who roam the Docklands
And there are ships passing in the night
And there are thousands of things that I have dreamed
Gone in the daylight

Sister says… hold your head up high
Life goes on… so don’t be afraid
Keep your defenses… but don’t shut the loving out
You got to learn to carry that weight

And all the people who roam the Docklands
And all the ships passing through the night
And there are thousands of things that I have dreamed
Gone in the daylight
Sometimes I feel like I’m in a foreign land
And there’s a mirror I’m looking through
Lost in the place where I was born
Without a hand to hold on to

Hold on… (Hold on… )
Hold on… (Hold on… )

In the Docklands where I was born…
People keep moving to and fro
Everybody’s pushing… trying to make it happen
I… beg of you… (I) I beg of you… (l) I beg of you…

I miss you… more than I thought I could
I need you… more than you know
I was there… when they took you away from me
I’ll be there… when they let you go

And then the people who roam the Docklands
And all the ships passing in the night
And the thousands of things that I have dreamed
Stay in the daylight
Sometimes I feel like I’m in a foreign land
And there’s a mirror I’m looking through
Well bring me back to the place where I was born
Without a hand to hold on to
Give me your hand
Give me your hand… (Give me your hand)
Give me your hand… in the Docklands
I… beg of you… give me your hand…
In the Docklands

  • REVIEW: Fleetwood Mac at Rod Laver Arena Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    Given the well-documented dramas they’ve endured over the decades, you assumed by now Fleetwood Mac were pretty much invincible. However reuniting that classic Rumours-era line-up back for the 2014/2015 tour proved they had one more soap opera-style twist up their billowing sleeves. So in 2019, it’s either this Lindsey Buckingham-free version of Fleetwood Mac or […]
  • Fleetwood Frankenband a beautiful monster Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    FLEETWOOD MAC ★★★★ Rod Laver Arena, until September 9 Eighteen months ago, it seemed positively absurd that someone like Neil Finn – a well known musician and songwriter in his own right who had by no means put his feet up – could, or even would, join a band like Fleetwood Mac. Perhaps it still […]
  • Another Rumours deluxe set coming this fall Friday, August 23, 2019
    Rhino/Warner Bros. Records will be reissuing another deluxe edition of Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 album Rumours to coincide with the band’s remaining 2019 North American tour dates. The latest 4CD package, out October 25, compiles tracks from the previously released 2004 and 2013 reissues of the album. The package is a slimmed-down version of the 6-disc […]
  • Fleetwood Mac: Still going their own way Thursday, August 22, 2019
    Since it began as a British rock band in 1967, Fleetwood Mac has undergone 19 iterations while steadily adding Americans and, most recently, a New Zealander to its line-up. Its only remaining founding member is drummer Mick Fleetwood, who recently described each version of the group as “incredibly different musical episodes in this Shakespearean play […]
  • Seeing Fleetwood Mac in 2019 is a strange experience — but they’ve always been a strange band Wednesday, August 21, 2019
    If their songs weren’t so strong, endurance may be Fleetwood Mac’s greatest legacy Thirty minutes into Fleetwood Mac’s set at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre this week, Stevie Nicks admitted that she didn’t realise “Black Magic Woman” was a Fleetwood Mac song until well after she’d joined the band. It’s an astounding admission. Sure, the song […]
