The slack tide

Makes for a good ride

Been stuck inside

Waiting for the sun

 

I know

When the wind blows

And the rain won’t go (away)

It isn’t much fun

 

But today looks like the perfect day

To launch my boat and sail away

No clouds above, the weather’s passed

The sea looks like a sheet of glass

 

Floating nowhere, feeling fine

No destination on my mind

Where I’m at is where I’ll be

All I need is idle speed

 

Won’t touch

My throttle

Just open

Another bottle

 

Slow Down

See things clearer

(When) The surface

Becomes a mirror

 

I can’t imagine starting her up

If I make a wake, it’s seven year’s bad luck

So I’ll stay on hook and if I need

I’ll only move at idle speed

 

Floating nowhere, feeling fine

No destination on my mind

Where I’m at is where I’ll be

All I need is idle speed
