When I first heard this song I thought of Josh right away. It describes who we are to each other. As a lover of boats, water, and sand, I knew he’d appreciate the metaphors. So, I post it here in honor of his 30th birthday.
I love you, old man.
If you were a boat, my darling A boat, my darling I’d be the wind at your back If you were afraid, my darling Afraid, my darling I’d be the courage you lack
If you were a bird, then I’d be a tree And you would come home, my darling, to me If you were asleep, then I’d be a dream Wherever you are, that’s where my heart will be
Oh, do you know we belong together? Oh, do you know my heart is yours?
If you were the ocean, I’d be the sand If you were a song, I’d be the band If you were the stars, then I’d be the moon A light in the dark, my darling, for you
