A barber misses sailing around his old stomping grounds near Honey Harbour after being forced to move away.


Honey Harbour

He seems profoundly disillusioned as he cuts the young boy's hair
Can't understand his own confusion when it somehow finds him there
And as he works he feels his back ache – he is standing all day long
Some days he feels his heart break and he isn't sure what's wrong

How did the boy from Honey Harbour
Who loved to play upon the water
Wind up working as a barber
In the first town that he found
He used to sail out on his dad's boat
He remembers when they bought her
He remembers how they would float
For hours and hours, ‘round and ‘round Honey Harbour

The radio is softly playing some old pop song from the past
A drunken customer is saying not to cut his hair too fast
So he makes idle conversation “How's the weather, what a team”
Never risks a confrontation but some days he’d like to scream

Look at that ghost town to the northwest
The factory stood there by the bay
The company sold its interest
Said they couldn't make it pay
And people slowly moved away

He used to play out on the water
He loved to sail out the water
‘Round and 'round Honey Harbour
