Boat Song

Did you see that boat for sale
by the side of the road?
It would only cost us fifty
can you imagine if we
bought that boat for sale
we could sail it down the river
throw caution to the wind
and just surrender
to something bigger

Maybe one day we
could take it out to sea
oh, just for fun
a day on the ocean
oh, how I want

that boat for sale
by the side of the road
we could take it for a ride
and leave the rest behind
in that boat for sale
we could sail into the sunset
and find whatever's hiding
in the darkness, the darkness

for one day so that we
could take it out to sea
oh, just for fun
a day on the ocean
oh, how I want

that boat for sale

MIRA & CHUCK: "We know for sure that this song came from a drive where we actually drove by a boat for sale -- and the idea of a boat being for sale...for sail...for sale...stirred our imaginations. So this song is about WHAT IF...what if you bought the boat? Or what if you did that thing you really want to do? What if you reached for something more? What if you went out beyond...This song didn't all come together at once. It came in pieces - both writing and arrangement-wise - deciding to trade words was the last part of the arrangement we created. We think it's what finally made the song fit and work for us. Working with this song in the studio was a lot of fun...having the extra freedom and possibility to let it build into its final moments."
