All For You

Out afloat for three years now
Since I lay down upon dry soil
They said we capsized, but no storm took me down
Just rounded up and tossed aside

Now the moon is moving slowly overhead
And I’m losing all that I gathered up again
It serves me right ‘cause I’m lonesome for that time
When I knew that I was all for you

I once had a baby, with a longing in her eye
She kept her cool when we got wild
But we were younger then, we had time to lose
Never once did we whisper a goodbye

Now I’m moving through the Gulf of Mexico
Broke away from their trail of nets, bottles, through storms
Just to lose my way, but I know my plastic sail painted blue
Will catch the eye of the crew
Can anybody see me?

The sky now is breaking up, sun falling ‘round like rain
A silhouette just ahead, it looks like my luck is changin’
A coastline, a river winding through blue mountain ranges to the sea…

If I run aground, I’ll never let this heart come unwound
I’ll keep it wrapped around you
Until that day, I’m still lonesome for that time
When I knew that I was all for you
