Hotel on the Harbour

In a hotel by the waterfront
Watching an orange sign go round and round
I see the lights on the horizon
A flock of seagulls are heaven bound

There are boats floating through the Harbour
Traveling at an unhurried pace 
I observe them chugging with purpose
Well at least to me that seems the case

At one time this was a large shipyard
A different World from long ago
People moving around with purpose
Now Just Hotels standing in a row

I guess there are still people working
Still there aren't any ships being made
Another lost piece of the puzzle
Death of industry that could have stayed

Sure the Hotels are Magnificent
The waterfront is now manicured
A skilled trade pushed out of existence
All us tourists to here are all lured
