Lyrics:
BOATS
by Daniel Dworsky

Pretty and useless like the river in the wintertime
Like the winter in a river time, I'm clever that way.
You caught me sleeping in the springtime
I've not let summer slip away.

If only you could be here now
If only it hadn't been so long
If only we could meet somehow
I'd find the strength to go on

Running lights flicker chilly and dry beneath the stars tonight
Such lights show me the way home
Somewhere you learn to discern from these flames
Simple choices of wrong, less wrong, and right.

I feel like a boat on the Mississippi
That never saw an ocean nor a sea
Like some poor little hollow clown caught out on the mainstream
I just followed the river down

Like the wall to the holy city
Like the sailor to the sea
Like the dark to the shallow water
You mean everything to me

I feel like a boat on the Mississippi
That never saw an ocean nor a sea
Like some poor little hollow clown caught out on the mainstream
I just followed the river down

Wars are over sooner than you think sometimes
Your rivers and your oceans rhyme -- I'm on my way
You caught me sleeping in the springtime
I'll not let summer slip away.
