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 floating in the water
tonight my heart is on that ship with you

i make paper airplanes for my four year old
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 sinking in the water
i am breathing in the water

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!
