I’ve Missed the Boat (Poseidon’s Song)

Late nights
With all my friends enjoying life
Thinking
The good times would never end
We had a lot of fun

Lately
It seems like the party is winding down
Friendship
Makes me feel stranded at sea
Everyone’s moving on
And they don’t have time for me

I’ve missed the boat
And it feels so lonely
Everyone has settled down
But I don’t want to give it up

Because the life we once held dearly
Is the life I want to lead

Longing
For lovers that longed to be near to me
Wanting
Nothing more than a kiss
Love was a simple game

Sinking
Deep into currents I’ve never known
Mourning
The life that I thought we would live
It’s time to let it go
Because life has more to give

I’ve missed the boat
And it feels so lonely
Everyone has settled down
But I don’t want to give it up
Because the life we once held dearly
Is the life I want to lead
And it feels so incomplete
Without a strong family
I’ve Missed the Boat (Poseidon’s Song)
