the lights look bluer
when you’re way up high
I wrote you a song and I
I threw it, I threw it in the fire
and if I could lay me down for a while
oh I would lay me down, down

but if I had a boat I’d sail to you
drag it through the mud if there weren’t no water
I would steal a night of sin or two
damn ‘em all, I ain’t no preacher’s daughter
I’d walk my feet raw in the desert sand
cry out to the moon like it understands
oh, if I had a boat

I think in numbers
I’m pretty sure that you think in rhyme
the sum keeps changing
I’ve worked the math out far too many times
and we drag our truths around like a lie
yeah we drag them all around

but if I had the words I’d send for you
a perfectly constructed typewriter cannon
I’d shoot it straight up out into the blue
to where you are, lord knows that I’d be firing at random
and I just wanna know, where do you keep your kings?
and if they ever fall, then will you think of me?
oh, if I had the words

if I had a boat I’d sail to you
oh, if I had a boat I’d sail to you
but I ain’t got no vessel I ain’t got no sea
I find myself as landlocked as can be
but if I had a boat
