Jan 13 2022 Lyrics" English

These are the official lyrics for the song “Dreamboats to Share”. It’s track #3 from the album “A Ship to Something”.

Verse 1

I need the freedom to grow this
I’ve adventures to sell and a way to let go it
Is not the same as working the paychecks
It’s not the same at all, dear

Verse 2

I need this noise to blow over
I have stories to share, and an ending so cruel it
Will leave the stone-cold faced with a heartbreak
And they’ll (finally?) turn around to listen

Chorus 1

Why won’t you meet me in the park
Why would you wait until it’s dark
Why would you hide away till noon

Why leave your masterpiece inside
Why shield the power of your mind
Why take the blame for just your name

Bills coming, lights flooding and
I’m drowning and I __
And I __

Verse 3

I need the world to turn winter
I’ve got warm hugs to spare, and by now it’s beginning
To eat itself out of my soul
And it needs a place to anchor

Verse 4

(But) first I need the ocean to calm down
I’ve got dreamboats to share, and some walls that will fall down
If I only saw a light that could guide me
To the end of strange endeavors

Chorus 2

Oh won’t you give me what I want
Won’t you wander into hearts
Won’t you see this work complete

Why would you force me into this
Why restrict me to one kiss (?)
Why not keep the thoughts you need

Expectations, no vacations (?)
But it’s worth it if
I __ , if I __ am allowed


To yell, to tell, to be myself,
To share, and tear apart the wealth
Of wrong and right and whatever’s left of that

To write, to sing, to make a thing,
That spreads and grows and has me cling
To walls and chairs by the sheer enormity

The flood gates open
Do not tell me to stay silent and sit still
If given the option
Everyone, everyone would choose to believe

Verse 5

I need the sun to rise hopeful
I need someone to care, for me I’m a handful
But I hope (that) a hand full of magic
Is not so heavy a burden

Verse 6

I want a quiet house on a hillside
I have madness to bear, and I need to go outside
It’s not that I don’t like the company
My wild thoughts just need sorting (?)

Chorus 3

Oh won’t you play this on repeat
Why don’t you steal the parts you need
Why must we begin from greed (?)

Oh will you listen to my tale
My success and how I fail
No adventure can grow stale

With my eyes open, wide mind open
And I’m hoping that
I __ can, that I __ can
That I__ can, I__ can
