lyrics

Take your best shot, though you can’t see a thing
Don’t matter bout skill, luck’s everything
And just when you think you know where you’re aiming
The target will move, it’s constantly changing

Oh I know and she knows, love’s a raft in the ocean
You make what you can and you hope it keeps floating
Cause you’ve got no control, love’s but a map and the notion
That there’s a home out there for us, if we somehow can hold on
Through the rain, and the waves, and the long stormy nights

I mull over words, that were spoken to me
“If believing was easy, then dying would be cheap”
And just when you think, you know what you’re doing
The game starts to change, winning becomes losing

Oh I know and she knows, life’s a raft in the ocean
You make what you can and you hope it keeps floating
Cause you’ve got no control, life’s but a map and the notion
That there’s a home out there for us, if we somehow can hold on
Through the rain, and the waves, and the long stormy nights

If there’s one thing I’ve learned, through all of my falls
It’s if you want to stand straight, you can’t be too proud to crawl
Cause just when you think, you’ve figured it out
Your new found knowledge, gets trampled down by doubt

Oh I know and she knows, love’s a raft in the ocean
You make what you can and you hope it keeps floating
Cause all you’ve got is hope, life’s but a map and the notion
That there’s a home out there for us if we somehow can hold on
Through the rain, and the waves, and the long stormy nights
