A Boat Lies Waiting

One of the masterpieces of music and lyrics David Gilmour/Polly has ever created – A Boat Lies Waiting. The lyrics and the music, I felt them so connected at one time and very disconnected the other time – the power of beautiful lyrics and sensational music. I keep the lyrics opened on my browser for a week, reading it every time I get close to my computer and shared it with many of my friends. Finally, I thought to share it on my blog so that I will stay with it forever.

Something I never knew
In silence I’d hear you
And a boat lies waiting
Still your clouds all flaming
That old time easy feeling

What I lost was an ocean
Now I’m drifting through without you
In this sad barcarolle

What I lost was an ocean
And I’m rolling right behind you
In this sad barcarolle

It rocks you like a cradle
It rocks you to the core
You’ll sleep like a baby
As it knocks at death’s door

 – Songwriters: David Jon Gilmour/Polly Anne Samson
