Set Sail

Lyrics by Nathan Hamer

Build me a boat, find me a bay
So I can set sail and sleep through the day
Write me a song, for her to come back
Then blow the steam engine and lay down the track

Time, it holds us
Rolls us forward

Lend me your lips, just for a while
So I can feel comfort, a warm summer smile
Have me around, lock it away
This box full of poems that I'll write one day

Time, it holds us
Rolls us forward

Hold my hands up, watch me stand up
Leave these lands behind
Watch me sail off, masts avail
All built with hands while blind

Time, it holds us
Rolls us forward
Calls these water-ridden lungs to shore
