if you were a sailboat lyrics – katie melua

“if you were a sailboat”

if you’re a cowboy i would trail you,
if you’re a piece of wood i’d nail you to the floor.
if you’re a sailboat i would sail you to the sh*r*.
if you’re a river i would swim you,
if you’re a house i would live in you all my days.
if you’re a preacher i’d begin to change my ways.

sometimes i believe in fate,
but the chances we create,
always seem to ring more true.
you took a chance on loving me,
i took a chance on loving you.

if i was in jail i know you’d spring me
if i was a telephone you’d ring me all day long
if was in pain i know you’d sing me soothing songs.

sometimes i believe in fate,
but the chances we create,
always seem to ring more true.
you took a chance on loving me,
i took a chance on loving you.

if i was hungry you would feed me
if i was in darkness you would lead me to the light
if i was a book i know you’d read me every night

if you’re a cowboy i would trail you,
if you’re a piece of wood i’d nail you to the floor.
if you’re a sailboat i would sail you to the sh*r*.
if you’re a sailboat i would sail you to the sh*r*
