about

Inspired by the cast glass art of Bertil Vallien. A poetic look at what the boat form symbolizes.

lyrics

Boat

My boat floats through memories and dreams
My boat floats through memories and dreams
Requires no compass for navigation
Sails the horizon of imagination

A delicate skin guards against the unknown
Never sacrificed to fire once it is worn
Left to die on the shore
No longer it floats
In death it gives life to other boats

Light as a paper cup I dance on the stream
Entranced by flotsam I hear fishes sing
Delirious skies
Wind lends me wings
Drifting in exile this feels like a dream

She’s a life giving mother
She protects like no other
In a floating universe

My boat floats through memories and dreams
My boat floats through memories and dreams
Requires no compass for navigation
Sails the horizon of imagination
I bale out the sadness
I bale out the water
Master these waves
Like a true ocean’s daughter…
