David Gray - Last Boat To America Lyrics




Paint 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
Baby kiss me till the daylight's through
These are days that make you blue
And there ain't nothing more a fool can do
In and out of dreams all day

Cos tonight I'll dream about
Baby let's go walk away 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
Our heads are filled with perfect sound
Do we truly see it, hey
Till we're placing it in the ground
Take just what you need from me

Cos tonight I'll dream about
Baby let's go walk away this time
Want to take you all away this time
Don't matter, lie to me, I'm falling

Don't need your light on me, no no
Don't need your light on me?
Paint me a boat, away I'll float
Into the stillness of a pure blue sky.
