lyrics

my love jumped on a boat that crossed the sea
halfway around the world she waits for me
i thought we'd go together, but this was just her time
who knows how long i'll be stuck in line

we promised we would read what the other wrote
i've been looking for a bottle with a note
the currents have been funny, and i do believe you've tried
but all along the shore nothing but tide

on a distant shore, wait for me
i've got some things to do, things to see
i'll be coming home, wait for me
wait for me

i was next in line, but i got turned away
said my shots are due, my passport's out of date
i guess i've got some time here before i'm getting through
explore these shores before i get to you

now a summer's passed and we're a world apart
but you're just as close as ever to my heart
throw a bottle to the ocean, godspeed my love to you
may the wind and waves carry my song through

my love jumped on a boat that crossed the sea
halfway around the world she waits for me
until i get a ticket on that fabulous great ride
i'll be here with an eye cast on the tide
