I'm gonna build a raft
And sit 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 will never fail

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

Every day 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 motorway
So hear my serenade beckoning her near, beckoning her near

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

Every day 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, cos I love in vain
Cos I knew, knew she'd never come
Cos she couldn't bear the ocean
She couldn't stand the waves

Every day 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
