Still A Mystery

Story Behind The Song

I read a story about a ship that was found sunken, perhaps scuttled, decades ago and no one really knew how it got there, seemed like a real mystery story to me...but I gave it a human twist so that it would play on a couple of different levels. Otherwise, it might seem like its the WRECK OF THE EDMUND FITZGERALD part II.

Still a Mystery
Lyrics and music c. Steve Waddington

Its still a mystery
Did she lay down just to sleep?
Or was she laid to rest?
What is the secret that she keeps?

There may not be an answer now
or reason of just how this came to be...
Its still a mystery...

No trace of evidence,
Nothing concrete left behind
And nothing points to this,
At least nothing you can find

No feeling to substantiate
a rumor of what trouble she might be...
Its still a mystery...

Stone cold, left out in the rain
So old, nothing else remains
Nothing but the pain

One hundred years from now
If they really want to know
They can open up their books
But they wont know where to go

They'll say she was a beauty
but the facts about her life will surely be
Still a mystery...
