"Boat On The Charles" as written by and Todd Rundgren....
Boat on the Charles
Train on a spur down by the riverside
The door's open wide
Planes in a line just seven miles away

They leave every day
And someone's always going south
A guy with a truck here about is going New Year's Eve
Why don't you leave

Why don't I leave
I can't make myself believe
No one really cares for me here
I can't make no sense of this place and I fear

I can't spend another day without hearing from you
Throw my life away and pass my body through into the Charles
Boat on the Charles
Bird on a wire outside my window pane

It's started to rain
Buses in line just seven blocks away
They leave every day
And someone's always asking me why I can't seem

To make myself see
That you won't answer me
Why don't you leave
Why don't I leave

How many times can a man be told
How many times before I lose control
I don't give a damn for my immortal soul
It's just about time I let my insides show

So here I go

    General CommentHis voice was so absolutely sweet and pure on this song. A must for any newcomers to his music. Both Runt albums, actually!
