Ben Rector – Sailboat lyrics
I feel just like a sailboat
I don't know where I'm headed
But you can't make the wind blow
From a sailboat
I have seen the sun
I felt the rain on my skin
I've been lost and found
But mostly I've been waiting

Oh I'm out in the waves
And I'm hoping and praying
Please let this wind blow me home
And night after night there's an empty horizon
My God do I feel so alone
But sometimes life, most times I, feel just like a sailboat (mmm)

And I'm pretty sure I'm heard
At least I know I'm speaking
But I feel like a fool (yeah)
'Cause I can't hear you listening (mmm)
But I'm not giving up (oh)
I'm gonna move on forward
I'm gonna raise my sail
God knows what I'm headed towards

Oh I'm out in the waves
And I'm hoping and praying
Please let this wind blow me home
And night after night there's an empty horizon
My God do I feel so alone
Sometimes life, most times I, feel just like a sailboat (mmm)

The only change I see
The lost are found at sea
The only difference
Is believing I'll make it in

Oh I'm out in the waves
And I'm hoping and praying
Please let this wind blow me home
And night after night there's an empty horizon
My God do I feel so alone

Oh I'm out in the waves
And I'm hoping and praying
Please let this wind blow me home
And night after night there's an empty horizon
My God do I feel so alone
Sometimes life, and most times I, feel just like a sailboat
