Giving Everything Away for Free

Album: Love and War (2009)
  • I'm gonna build a raft and set it on the water there
    Hoping she will come, see the thing I made
    What a thing I made

    Today I'm gonna sail even if she doesn't show
    The ocean can decide, love is like a wave
    Love would never fail

    Hope she gets here soon
    I hope she isn't far away
    But if she is, I'll sail anyway

    Everyday that I love her I kill myself
    It happens over and over, there's no one else
    And I try to forget her but look at me
    Giving everything away for free

    And when I'm out at sea, I'm gonna write a song for her
    I'll sing across the bay, hoping she will hear
    Hoping she will hear

    I think she's in her car and just above the ?
    To hear my serenade reckoning her near
    Reckoning her near

    And then she's gonna swill
    I didn't build my raft in vain
    But if I did, we'll both drown anyway

    'Cause everyday that I love her I kill myself
    It happens over and over, there's no one else
    And I try to forget her but look at me
    Giving everything away for free
    Giving everything away for free, free

    Drown me, it'll stop the pain, if my love's in vain
    'Cause I knew, I knew she'd never come
    'Cause she couldn't bear the ocean
    She couldn't stand the waves

    So everyday that I love her I kill myself
    It happens over and over, there's no one else
    And I try to forget her but look at me
