The "tug of war" of love, and freedom.


You’ve taken it for granted
We’ll be ok
So sure we’d make it
Sunshine every day
But I’m stuck in muddy waters
& I’ve lost my way
& you don’t seem to understand
The way the I feel.
Steer my boat to clear waters
Take my heart out to sea
Though I may seem to falter
I know one day I’ll be free.

You seem to walk on water
And I am not immune
You bring me round each corner
But break away too soon
And I’m caught in muddy waters
Trying to cast away
Those fears of stormy weather
And dreams of yesterday.

Steer my boat to clear waters
Take my heart out to sea
I know that I seem to falter
I know that I'll be free
That's where I'm gonna be.

The rain keeps pouring
It just pounds on and on
The waves keep soaring
& I feel like I’m gonna drown
Could love still find us
will truth still bind us
Will the sun still come our way?

Steer my boat to clear waters
Take my heart out to sea
And though I may seem to falter
I know that we'll be free
And that’s where I want to be.
