lyrics

Take me away from this man
help me to draw up the plan
I need to find a place to lay my head
time will not erase the words we said

Build me a boat in the sand
push me out to sea
float me away from this wasteland
I just want to be free

Help me to stand on my own
pull me up off of the floor
I need to find a path to the shore
to feel the sun on my skin, the sun so warm

Build me a boat in the sand
push me out to sea
float me away from this wasteland
I just want to be free

Lift me up over the trees
where I can finally see
float me away
push with both hands
i just want to be free
