lyrics

Climb into the boat beside me
I'll steer, you can row beside me
use your steady oars to guide me
as we travel on the red sea

I deeply fear the ocean
for there's no end and no beginning
I am no sailor, I was land-born
after my sister, before my brother
saltwater mouthfuls and wrinkling fingers
I wore my welcome out down below

(I was Ishmael I was itching for the warmth of the water in the palm of my hands)
You're quite a swimmer, can you teach me?
I'm too impatient but I learn quickl
(I was Ahab, too, I was after the animal who delivered me a living death)
I can tell you were sea-born
after your father, after your mother
(I was Moby Dick, I was thrashing in the water, I was bloody, I was out for blood)
and I believe you and I'll go with you
into the deep blue
we'll go together

Climb into the boat beside me
I'll steer, you can row beside me
use your steady oars to guide me
as we travel on the red sea

April rain never
felt so sweet, I'm just glad I
had you there with me

So here we go now
after you, dear
we'll find what's hiding out down below
