boat song lyrics – gary jules

boy went out
on a boat tonight
waiting on his lover
seen his mermaid bright
in the moonlight
in the arms of another

she said “standing on
the water is easier to do
then to try and be
a family living here with you”

and the more
i’ve been thinking
the more i know
you know i’m living alone.

now they see him
out on the water waves
rolling on the foam
only memories for a future
only ocean for a home

cause amelia’s the name
that she calls herself these days
and “birds, birds!” is all we heard
before she flew away

and the more
i’ve been thinking
the more i know
you know i’m living alone
