Schwa Lyrics

Float (Epilogue)

Lyricist: Ed McGee
Vocalist: Ed McGee
I went down to the river
and I found her old wooden boat
I went down to the river
and I found her old wooden boat
laid me down, fell asleep in its shadow
and dreamt of the days it could still float

Dreamt I climbed up the mountain
and waited for the sun to rise
Dreamt I climbed up the mountain
and waited for the sun to rise
sun never came, got so used to the darkness
even light from the moon burnt my eyes

I knelt down and lit a candle
and heard myself calling out her name
I knelt down and lit a candle
and heard myself calling out her name
then the dream got kinda hazy
but I swear I remember her swimming in the flame

Let me tell ya all about her
better listen fast, friend
cuz she's slipping from the past
to what's never even been
she said "I might bend the rules,
but I always read the signs"
and if ya didn't catch that
let me say it one last time

She could find a flower
fully bloomed by the full moon light
She could  steal a pocketful of stars
from the middle of the night
She would share them with her best friend
and watch the constellations rhyme
and if ya didn't catch that
let me say it one last time

Well, go ahead and call me crazy
but that's just the way it was
she was Heineken and I was
just befuddled in the buzz
And I can't believe it's over
she's still shining in my mind
and if ya didn't catch that
let me say it one last time

I went down to the river
and I found her old wooden boat
I went down to the river
and I found her old wooden boat
laid me down, fell asleep in its shadow
dreamt of the days it could still float
