The Ship + The Lookout (demo)

by Ruby Rae

Ruby Rae Song Club exclusive


Written as part of February Album Writing Month (aka FAWM)!


The Ship on the Ocean
Loves the Man on the Lookout
At the top of the lighthouse
Safe in the storm

She's been reading her poets
She's been practicing her moves
To get a little closer
And she's gonna do it soon

Don't break the surface
I love you so
Shine your light on me now
We can just float

She knew about the danger
The rocks all around
He tried to warn her
With his light so strong

Some love is just faulty
It crashes on the shore
He looks to the horizon
She's gone forever more
