Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Sailing to Nowhere

This song was created for Game of Bands round 253 : "90s Music III"

Lyrics:

This life isn’t what you wanted
Dinner parties, cigars, and old money
You were always told what to do
Sit up straight, dear
Your life’s not for you

Climbing over the railing in your high heels
Negotiating your future like a business deal
A lucky hand, a full house
Brought me to you
There’s nothin’ to lose

If you jump
Then I jump, too

Let's make it count
'Cuz all we've got
Is the here and now

Let's make it count
Before this whole thing
Ends up going down

You yelled “shut up,” just off the cuff
Sketching portraits, lying in the buff
Foggy windows in the back of a car
Now they’re wondering
Who you are

The heart of the ocean, it couldn’t sway
You, climbing higher, breaking away
Ready, aim, and shoot for the stars
Because you just can’t sink
A love like ours

Let's make it count
'Cuz all we've got
Is the here and now

Let's make it count
Before this whole thing
Ends up going down

Meet me at the top of the stairs
Take off your shoes, let down your hair
Meet me at the top of the stairs
We can sail to nowhere

Let's make it count
'Cuz all we've got
Is the here and now

Let's make it count
Before this whole thing
Ends up going down

Let's make it count
'Cuz all we've got
Is the here and now

Let's make it count
Before this whole thing
Ends up going down
[Exit]
