Three Miles Down - Allan J Begg solo version recorded at Soup Studios


These are the words of a drowning man
Fifty fathoms down from inside an old tin can
"Are you looking for a man?" I said 'cause a passenger don't get paid
"There's a place on a crew" he said "that sails beneath the waves"

We slipped berth that very starless night
Sounded and left behind the light
Surrounded by the horrors of the deep
Three miles down

These are the days that pass without a dawn
No horizon to contemplate to comfort thoughts forlorn
I left her at the alter my beloved jilted bride
I left her broken hearted with a new life inside

That poor girl, never knew my name
couldn't tell her, I couldn't stand the shame
For my crime, another took the blame. Now iIm
Three miles down

And as my wretched life it ends with the water pouring in
A million tonnes of brine couldn't wash away my sin

I ruined the woman I adore
Now I'm trapped here with the Kraken at the door
Silent I'll wait for ever more
Three miles down
