A song about freedom

and the trading of same for something else

 

 

Lyrics

 

my painted boat

painted boat full of dreams

sailed these misty islands

crossed these sunlit seas

sometimes i know my port of call

sometimes it’s anywhere at all

we’re always searching the sea

painted boat and me

 

and we go

ride the wind for free

and we go, yeah we go

painted boat and me

 

my painted boat

painted boat full of dreams

our road’s the water

our map the seven seas

we can wait out any storm

stay in harbour safe and warm

there’s no place we need to be

painted boat and me

 

and we go

ride the wind for free

and we go, yeah we go

painted boat and me

and we go, yeah we go

ride the wind wild and free

and we go, yeah we go

painted boat and me

 

my painted boat

painted boat full of dreams

came to the city

shining city by the sea

for a while i lost my way

till i found myself one day

down on the wharf by the sea

painted boat and me

 

and we go

ride the wind for free

and we go, yeah we go

painted boat and me

 

my painted boat

painted boat full of dreams

came to an island

so deep in the sea

paradise or port of call

warm hello or final landfall

this time we put out to sea

painted boat and me

 

and we go

ride the wind for free

and we go, yeah we go

painted boat and me

and we go, yeah we go

ride the wind wild and free

and we’ll go, yeah we’ll go, yeah we’ll go

painted boat and me

 

my painted boat

painted boat full of dreams

came to harbour

came in from the sea

heard the siren after all

could it be last port of call

and we never put out to sea

painted boat and me

 

will we never go

ride the wind for free

will we never go, never go

painted boat and me

 

painted lady

painted lady full of dreams

made me tarry

made me forget the sea, ah but

one day i’ll hear the foghorn blow

have to get up and go

take the lady to sea

painted boat and me

 

and we’ll go, yeah we’ll go

ride the wind for free

and we’ll go

painted boat and me

and we’ll go, yeah we’ll go

ride the wind wild and free

and we’ll go, yeah we’ll go, yeah we’ll go

painted boat and me

 

and we’ll go

wait for the sun to burn the mist

and we’ll go

wait for a fair wind from the west

and we’ll go

now we’ll just wait on the tide

and we’ll go

hoist the sail and we’ll ride

 

and we’ll go, yeah we’ll go

ride the wind for free

and we’ll go, yeah we’ll go

painted boat and me

and we’ll go, yeah we’ll go

ride the wind wild and free

and we’ll go, yeah we’ll go, yeah we’ll go, yeah we’ll go

painted boat and me

 

and we’ll go

and we’ll go

and we’ll go

and we’ll go

painted boat and me
