If you're on a journey
Cause you had to work things out
Take your time to get it right
And I hope you erase all your doubts

If you've had a notion
Gonna sail across the ocean
In a boat built for one
Keep trying to stay near the sun

One thing I remember
You never did a bad thing to me
Built a boat for two
And I'll row it for you

I'm waiting for a postcard that you won't write
(Just hoping there's a chance that you might)
I'm clinging to a memory that we might share
(Just trying to send a thought through the air)

If you have a message
Want me to pass it along
Find some way to get it through
And I promise I’ll whisper for you

But if you’re undercover
You’d better leave your briefcase behind
You won’t need a lock or a key
To keep what you find

If you get in trouble
And you need to make your escape
I’ll carve a fast canoe
And I’ll send it to you

I'm waiting for a postcard that you won't write
(Just hoping there's a chance that you might)
I'm clinging to a memory that we might share
(Just trying to send a thought through the air)
I’m looking for a metaphor that you might like
(I can’t find the one that you deserve to hear)
