Jackie (Placebo)

Jackie left on a cold, dark night Telling me he'd be home He sailed the sea for a hundred years And left me all alone Now, I've been dead for twenty years I've been washing the sand With my ghostly tears Searching the shores for my Jackie And I remember the day that The young man came Said your Jackie's gone he's lost in the rain And I ran to the beach (Laid me down) You're all wrong, I said as they stared To the sand, that man knows the sea Like the back of his hand, he'll be back Sometime, laughing at you I've been waiting all this time For my man to come Take his hand in mine And lead me away to unseen shores I've been washing the sand With my salty tears Searching the shores these long years And I walked the sea forevermore Till I find my Jackie Jackie Jackie Jackie
