Missing The Boat

A drum-free tune about what the title would lead you to believe it was about, only it's that age-old harsh decision so many men have faced before of whether to give up either the boat or his woman w/ uke solo.

Lyrics

"Missing The Boat"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

You're my anchor, and you keep me from drifting away

I've got a chance to go, but you keep my dreams at bay


Fair weather lovers, they come and they go

They can't be swayed to stay, when the high winds blow

What to do when life on land is a bore

And I know I’ll lose you if I leave you on the shore


I'm missing the boat, this house is like a jail

My soul needs a mate who’s ready to set sail

Don’t wanna live my life on an even keel

I want a happy marriage with an angle of heel

I'm ready to bail, we're barely stayin' afloat

I'd be sad to leave you, but I'm missing the boat


Our love hangs in the balance, and ever since we met

I’ve longed for open water, but you're afraid to get wet

I don’t wanna be alone, but the call is loud and clear

And we both know I can’t make you overcome your fear


I'm missing the boat, and this house is like a jail

My soul needs a mate who’s ready to set sail

Don’t wanna live my life on an even keel

I want a happy marriage with an angle of heel

I'm ready to bail, we're barely stayin' afloat

I'd be sad to leave you, but I'm missing the boat


Many a married man has found the sailing life

Many soon learn they’ve lost their wife

I’ve seen it happen and I understand why

But even so, my boating dreams won’t die


I'm missing the boat, this house is like a jail

My soul needs a mate who’s ready to set sail

Don’t wanna live my life on an even keel

I want a happy marriage with an angle of heel

I'm ready to bail, we're barely stayin' afloat

I'd be sad to leave you, but I'm missing the boat


I'm missing the boat and missing you can't compare

But your heart's just not in it, and mine's already there 

Feels like I'm taking on water, my spirit's sinking down

But drowning in my sorrows won't get me outward bound

I'm ready to sail, and now it's time for me to go

I'm sad I have to leave you, but I'm missing the boat


I'm sailing off without you, you're missing the boat
