lyrics

Hope deferred makes the heart grow sick
And she had heard her fair share of warnings
And she knew what she was getting into from the start
But that was cold cold comfort

It feels like anyone’s guess how this will all go
But I will do my best to hold on cos I know
If I let go of this now
Then I would let go of myself somehow

So she built her boat on the bone dry land
Didn’t know if it would float
Didn’t know if she could stand it
But she tuned out the voices ‘cept the one that said ‘keep going
You’re not done, and this not knowing doesn’t need to bring you down’

It feels like anyone’s guess how this will all go
But I will do my best to hold on cos I know
If I let go of this now
Then I would let go of myself somehow

So I’ll build this boat on the bone dry land
Don’t know if it will float,
Don’t know if I can stand it but I’ll
Build this boat on the bone dry land
Don’t know if it will float
Don’t know if this dream will stand but I will
Hold on

It feels like anyone’s guess how this will all go
But I will do my best to hold on cos I know
If I let go of this now
Then I would let go of myself so I will
Build this boat on the bone dry land don’t know if
It will float, don’t know if I can stand it but I’ll
Tune out the voices ‘cept the one that says keep going
You’re not done and this not knowing doesn’t need to bring you down
