Paper Boats

A little boy stands alone
watching as the tide comes rushing in
and he smiles as his paper boat
gently floats away

And he sails…

He waits for a friend to come
and watch the voyage
way out into sea
after an hour had gone
he walked away
the ships were out of sight

We’re out of sight…

Paper boats washed on the shore
in some land not too far away
a little girl picks them up
cradles them like crying babies

Is this what it’s all about?
Is this what it’s all about?

Paper boats washed on the shore
in some land not too far away
a little girl picks them up
cradles them like crying babies

Paper boats washed on the shore
Paper boats…

[ Claude S. / BMI]
