we're like a boat drifting
in a lonely sea
and the stars and moon
shine down on me

down, down the river we go
holding on for dear life
to the last stick of the raft
for we do love

and he tried to be brave
through each and every tear
and the only warmth
is the warmth of their bodies

we're like a boat drifting
in a lonely sea
and I start to cry

I need nothing but you

I wish I could be beautiful for you
and I feel as shallow as steel
no words are hollow enough
for how I feel

    General CommentThis song is fabulously eerie, dripping with imagination and melancholy loneliness.

    General CommentPerfect illustration of the ebbs and flows of romance. Turbulent, emotional, scattered, and uncontrollable.
