Boat Song

January 26, 2012


Listen here

When I first heard this song I thought of Josh right away. It describes who we are to each other. As a lover of boats, water, and sand, I knew he’d appreciate the metaphors. So, I post it here in honor of his 30th birthday.
I love you, old man.

If you were a boat, my darling
A boat, my darling
I’d be the wind at your back
If you were afraid, my darling
Afraid, my darling
I’d be the courage you lack

If you were a bird, then I’d be a tree
And you would come home, my darling, to me
If you were asleep, then I’d be a dream
Wherever you are, that’s where my heart will be

Oh, do you know we belong together?
Oh, do you know my heart is yours?

If you were the ocean, I’d be the sand
If you were a song, I’d be the band
If you were the stars, then I’d be the moon
A light in the dark, my darling, for you

Words and music by Dave and JJ Heller

    Lovely and mushy. Tell Josh happy b’day. Before he knows it, he’ll be so old you will have to be his oars. Just sayin’.
