lyrics

hotel winston room 303
amsterdam and me i'm high
raphael playin guitar in the dark
scared of a man with one good eye
now i'm on the road from kamp-lintfort to cologne
there's cows on the bridge
i'm a long way from anywhere
240 miles from an island
off the eastern canadian coast
where the unsinkable did the unthinkable
she went down she went down
these thing i know...the world's not flat
it's round and riding on a turtle's back
and my black mood is causing the weather
i know i will always be
240 miles from an island
off the eastern canadian coast
where the unsinkable did the unthinkable
she went down, she went down
like some big old rusty whore
lyin there covered in blue
tonight i'm on that island
i'm breathing in the water
tonight my heart is on that ship with you
i make paper airplanes for my four year old
and he's pretty sure it's magic
rosemary tells me the moon is in leo
so i'm doubly charismatic
and i sang my children to sleep again tonight
i swear i'm the king of the world
i swear i'm the king of an island
off the eastern canadian coast
where the unsinkable did the unthinkable
she went down she went down
like some big old rusty whore
lyin there covered in blue
tonight i'm on that island
i'm floating in the water
i'm sinkin in the water
i'm drowning in the water
tonight my heart is on that ship with you

Rob Lamothe Ontario

The Toronto Star says I am ‘a mercurial artist who slides effortlessly from rustic roots music to soulful country pop to full-blown rock balladry’. Works for me!
