It's soon but I've set sail again
The wind feels right this time
The waves are small
But they rock my boat
Just enough
It's soon but I've set sail again

I've put my trust in the constellations
The pinholes of hope
That steer my boat
I've put my heart in the hands
Of the man in the moon
It's soon but I've set sail again

And If you get seasick
I'll drop anchor and hold you close
And if you get sunstroke
I'll let you sit in the hull of my boat

It's soon but I've set sail again
The moon feels right this time
It's big and it's bright
And it's in line
With the stars
It's soon but I've set sail again
It's soon but I've set sail again

And If you get seasick
I'll drop anchor and hold you close
And if you get sunstroke
I'll let you sit in the hull of my boat

    My InterpretationThis is how I picture this song when I listen to it.

    It's soon but I've set sail again
    The wind feels right this time
    The waves are small
    But they rock my boat
    Just enough
    It's soon but I've set sail again

    I think this part is about starting over with something that you have tried but failed at in the past. "I've set sail" implies that he has set out again to give something another shot. He then begins to tell how he feels its the right time to start anew, and his inspiration, or possibly his own ideas, are just enough to get him to try once more.
    I've put my trust in the constellations
    The pinholes of hope
    That steer my boat
    I've put my heart in the hands
    Of the man in the moon
    It's soon but I've set sail again

    Like before, he is talking about how he has little ideas but he is starting again anyway. But, unlike other times, this time he is sticking to what he has planned, his ideas, etc.

    And If you get seasick
    I'll drop anchor and hold you close
    And if you get sunstroke
    I'll let you sit in the hull of my boat

    This is where I get a bit confused. It has nothing to do with my current interpretation, but I suppose that it was added to show emotion and love, which makes it sweet.

    It's soon but I've set sail again
    The moon feels right this time
    It's big and it's bright
    And it's in line
    With the stars
    It's soon but I've set sail again
    It's soon but I've set sail again

    Again, he feels it is right to start again.

    And If you get seasick
    I'll drop anchor and hold you close
    And if you get sunstroke
    I'll let you sit in the hull of my boat

    Again, love.

    This song speaks to me since I am a confused artist. I focus really hard on doing something, and in the end, I either decide its terrible or get sick of the idea. So yeah. Inspiration.
