We stay up all night
And watch the boats
From underneath the bridge
The trucks fly
And in the bravest moments
I watch you
And we take turns
Looking away

I adore you
I want to follow you
Make a boat out of this cigarette pack
Watch it float away
And hope it comes back
With the water
Under skyway bridge

We balance on the rocks
Scuff up our feet
Back inside the car
Our song is on repeat
And when the air is damp
And filled with morning
We’ll take our cue
Curl up in the backseat

I adore you
I want to follow you
Make a boat out of this cigarette pack
Watch it float away
And hope it comes back
With the water
Under skyway bridge

The steel men rise
And we shut our eyes
Smoke cross the bay
And now we’re driving away
I throw pains and wishes
Up to the sky
Watch them sink to the bottom
And kiss them goodbye

I adore you
I want to follow you
Make a boat out of this cigarette pack
Watch it float away
And hope it comes back

    General CommentI saw Melissa in concert and she talked about this being a song of coming of age in a small town - growing up with the people you care about, having your big dreams but for the moment being content to sit by the river.

    I think the song paints a beautiful emotional mental image and the lyrics coupled with the melody make it such a heartfelt gorgeous song.
