in the sea
we are lying in a boat
that rocks side to side
on the rivers we'll float down

here and now
we climb upon the bed
and we watch the shadows
whilst the sun begins to float down

well it's something to consider
in this room
in this flat
in this state i'm in
i'm feeling
out of town
and it feels like this

out of town
well i think i'll take a train
on to where i grew up
to appreciate the heat
when it comes 'round

in the sea
i am lying in a boat
it rocks side to side
on these rivers i'll float down

    My InterpretationI gather from the first verse where the subject is "we," compared to the last one where he replaces it with "I" that the song is losing someone - not necessarily dying but maybe someone he loved moved away or didn't like him or something, so now he's left to float down the rivers and do what he wanted to do with her/him by himself. That's kind of how I'm feeling right now so maybe that's the only reason why I think that, but these lyrics definitely are vague enough to have several interpretations.
