If I Had A Boat



Golden, golden, golden river run
to the East then drop beneath the sun.
And as the moon lies low and overhead
we're lost.

Burn slow, burning up the back wall.
Long roads, where the city meets the sky.
Most days, most days stay the sole same.
Please stay, for this fear it will not die.

If I had a boat, I would sail to you
hold you in my arms, ask you to be true.
Once I had a dream, it died long before.
Now I'm pointed north, hoping for the shore.

Down low, down amongst the thorn rows,
weeds grow, through the lilies and the vine.
Birds play, try to find their own way.
Soft clay, on your feet and under mine.

If I had a boat, I would sail to you
hold you in my arms, ask you to be true.
Once I had a dream, it died long before.
Now I'm pointed north, hoping for the shore.

Splitting at the seams
Heaving at the brace
Sheets all billowing
Breaking of the day
Sea is not my friend
And everyone conspires
Still I choose to swim
Slip beneath the tide.

Once I had a dream
Once I had a hope
That was yesterday
Not so long ago
This is not the end
This is just the world
Such a foolish thing
Such an honest girl.

If I had a boat, I would sail to you
hold you in my arms, ask you to be true.
Once I had a dream, it died long before.
Now I'm pointed north, hoping for the shore.
