Not Like Jordan

I'm getting near my destination
A slow train crawl
Like a fool I nearly miss the station
It's grown so small
Not betting on an easy landing
Out of the blue
These shuttered houses and a clock still standing at 1962

Waiting for the ferry
Tickets in their hand
Good people that were never out of sight of land
Waiting for the ferry
Tickets in their hand
Good people that you knew would never understand

And we're all on board
It's not very far to ride
Your river is not like Jordan
We'll meet on the other side

A stony church where lovers lingered
In years gone by
The hand of God still points a finger
Across the sky
A stony road to no salvation
Who sheds a tear?
I think that both of us were looking for a shortcut out of here

Waiting for the ferry
Tickets in our hand
Good people that were never out of sight of land
Waiting for the ferry
Tickets in our hand
Good people that you knew would never understand

Could've brought you whisky, could've brought you wine
The only thing I can't bring is time, time, time

And we're all on board
It's not very far to ride
Your river is not like Jordan
We'll meet on the other side

Could've brought you whisky, could've brought you wine
The only thing I can't bring is time, time, time

And we're all on board
It's not very far to ride
Your river is not like Jordan
We'll meet on the other side
