Rock the Boat


It was a quiet infatuation kept under lock and key
Had lots of time for everybody but found no time for me
The glitz of love’s perfection in a gaudy crystal ball
You’re too scared to jump and I’m afraid to fall

Now that it is over
And we’ve sorted it out
I never meant to rock the boat

No time for sorry
Let’s just move on
I didn’t mean to rock the boat

It was a release of shared frustration, not a meld of minds
Had my eyes wide open, but really, I was blind
Murdering the truth and cutting off my friends
Was waiting for the start while you were racing to the end

Now that it is over
Why all the doubt?
I never meant to rock the boat

No time for sorry
Get the fuck out
I didn’t mean to rock the boat

Now who is sorry?
Now who is right, who is wrong?
Why all the worry...
I was just a number, not a face

Now that it is over
I am left here without doubt
I never meant to rock the boat

Final acts of vengeance
Cold within and without
I didn’t mean to rock the boat

I didn’t mean to rock the boat
