Hello Was a Little Boat
Sherah Sleeper

Hello was a little boat
That carried me across the moat
A simple hello, and soon we were sunbathing on the shore

We were two of a kind and I loved you
And I told you so till I turned blue
But I never could cross the distance in you eyes

How many different ways can I try to explain what you mean to me
How far do I need to go before you know what you could be to me
But you don’t listen, won’t listen, can’t listen
And you won’t take yes for an answer

When the word “love” leaves my lips
Your eyes lose focus and your focus skips
To that girl you see when you look at me with your double-visioned heart

If she was ghost, well I’d understand
You’d have to be a fool to let go of this man
But a memory, well I can’t compete
And I shouldn’t even try

Sometimes I feel like a circus clown
My red face paint in a perfect frown
My big shoes tripping through your hoops
Too stupid or too in love?

…So I don’t listen, won’t listen, can’t listen
And I wont take no for an answer


from A Thousand Oceans, released October 20, 2012

We're an Austin-based, Acoustic Pop/Roots band with a romantic, 40's jazz twist. Sherah writes for The Fine Souls, & sings a sultry lead vocal. Phil Montfort's on acoustic and electric guitar & Zeke Benenate's on upright bass.
