Make me a boat, away I'll float
Into the stillness of a pure blue sky
There's nothin' 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 make believe
But there ain't nothin' any fool can do

Pin another dream on me
'Cos the night is bearin' down
Baby, let's got all the way this time

Sing me the truth, sweet bird of youth
I got some trouble tryin' 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 they're placin' it in the ground

Take just what you need from me
'Cos the night is bearin' down
Baby, let's go all the way this time

Frost on my windowpane is forming

Don't pin that line on me, oh, no
Don't pin that line on me, oh, no, no
Don't pin that line on me, oh, no
Don't pin that line on me, oh, no, no

Baby, let's go all the way this time
Won't you take me all the way this time
Baby, let's go all the way this time

Make me a boat, away I'll float
Into the stillness of a pure blue sky
