It's time, time for a change
'Cause I'm tired of that same old same
Same old words, same old lines
Same old tricks and the same old rhymes

Days, precious days
They roll in and out just like waves
Got boards to bend, planks to nail
Charts to make and I got seas to sail

So I'll build me a boat with these two hands
It'll be a fair curve from a noble plan
Let the chips fall where they will
'Cause I got me boats to build

Sails are just like wings
When the wind blows
How it makes 'em sing
Songs of life, songs of hope
Songs to keep all your dreams afloat

So I'll build me a boat with these two hands
It'll be a fair curve from a noble plan
Let the chips fall where they will
'Cause I got me boats to build

Shores, distant shores
That's a place I'll be headed for
The stars at night, they guide my way
As I sail into the light of day

Then I'll build me a boat with these two hands
It'll be a fair curve from a noble plan
Let the chips fall where they will
Yeah I got me boats to build

Yeah, I got me dreams to fill
Yeah, I got those boats to build
Let the winds take me where they will
