Sunshine stealing stage time
From the moon and stars above
She said leave me alone
I said take me home
Sixteen down living in the hallowed ground

Chorus:
Now the blue has turned to red (ahh Madeline, breathe)
All but given up for dead (ahh Madeline, breathe)
Ooh, Madeline (Madeline, breathe) Madeline, breathe!

Skiff rocked like a cradle
And the poor girl fell overboard
Rope wrapped around her neck
Tangled in her hair soaked wet
They dragged the stream
The body never to be found

(Chorus)

The dirt in the stream
The body never to be found
Accepting for the footprints caked
In the muddy ground beside where she laid

My life made the headlines
Beneath the waterlily sky
She said leave me alone
I said take me home
Sixteen down living in the hallowed ground

Now the blue has turned to red (ahh Madeline, breathe)
All but given up for dead (ahh Madeline, breathe)
Ooh, Madeline (Madeline, breathe)

Now the blue has turned to red (ahh Madeline, breathe)
All but given up for dead (ahh Madeline, breathe)
Ooh, Madeline (Madeline Reid) Madeline Reid can't breathe
