Overboard

I love writing about the sea and this song came about late one night when I could hear it from my house. It’s about succumbing in the best way and falling head over heels into something.

Waves playing kiss catch with the shore
Wet my face ‘til I want more
I am naked, beyond saving
This girl’s fallen over

boh-ooh-woh-ooh-woh-o-oh
O-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-o-oh
O-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-overboard

Boats know better than to beach here
But you lured me in so near
I am sinking beyond thinking
I’m waist deep in your clear
Blue water pouring in like I’ve been breached
I swear I will revoke speech
Until you swallow me whole

O-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-o-oh
O-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-o-oh
O-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-overboard

(Let’s just fall over)

boh-ooh-woh-ooh-woh-o-oh
O-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-o-oh
O-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-overboard

I’m the girl at the seaside skipping pebbles
While she stares down the horizon waiting for your return
I’m a kid collecting seashells on an empty beach
Trading blonde flecked hair for sunburn

And if I were on a boat with you and I had the good fortune to
Splish splash, crash land into the blue
I know that you’d pursue
And as the riptide pulls as back and forth I wouldn’t
Fight my magnetic north I wouldn’t
Distress or seek the shores
I’d whisper let’s fall overboard

O-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-o-oh
O-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-o-oh
O-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-overboard

(Let’s just fall over)

bo-ooh-woh-ooh-woh-o-oh
O-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-o-oh
O-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-overboard

As the riptide pulls as back and forth I wouldn’t
Fight my magnetic north I wouldn’t
Distress or seek the shores
I’d whisper let’s fall overboard
