last boat to america lyrics – david gray

make me a boat
away i’ll float
into the stillness of a pure blue sky
there’s nothing here to hold me now
and i got no more tears to cry

grant me a wish just one more kiss
oh baby kiss me till the daylights through
these are days of makebelieve
but there ain’t nothing any fool can do

pin another dream on me
‘cos the night is bearing down
baby lets go all the way this time

sing me the truth sweet bird of youth
i got some trouble trying to understand
beneath the veils of mystery
are these the movements of an unseen hand

our arms are filled with sunken treasure baby
now our heads are filled with perfect sound
but do we truly see it hey
till we’re placing it in the ground

take just what you need from me
‘cos the night is bearing down
baby lets go all the way this time

frost on my windowpane is forming

don’t pin that light on me oh no
don’t pin that light on me oh no
don’t pin that light on me oh no
don’t pin that light on me oh no

baby lets go all the way this time
won’t you take me all the way this time
baby lets go all the way this time

make me a boat
away i’ll float
into the stillness of a pure blue sky
