I've seen many faces
She is hiding what she feels...
I see her weary of life
From living with the hollow men
Grieving and bleeding
She is needing a little time to heal...
I watched the river flowing
And feel that she must know
You've got to walk away and safe yourself
Before it is too late...

I tell her to
Take the boat out
And let it float out on the lake
Set the sail and take the boat out
Let it drift away...
Let it drift away...

I've heard many voices
So I know that she can't speak
Her words are buried way below
The dark and muddy ground
Crying and sighing
She is dying for a little space to be
I watch her image fading
Is there nothing I can say?
Come one and shout your name out clear and loud
Don't let the wild girl sleep...

I tell her to
Take the boat out
And let it float out on the lake
Set the sail and take the boat out
Let it drift away...
Let it drift away...
