Chris Knight – Send A Boat Lyrics

Someone’s cryin’ in the hall. He’s younger when he dreams, he’s older than his years
And if he never wakes up, he’ll know why he’s here. Pictures on the wall, bottle in her hand,
Children never call, she misses her old man. He’s just cold and hungry, playin’ ain’t no fun
And if he ever grows up, he’ll get him a gun. Good Lord, help us all
While we try to stay afloat. The writing’s on the wall, there’s a bruise on his
face. Daddy’s come and go, momma’s on a date. Good Lord, help us all
While we try to stay afloat. Good Lord, help us all
While we try to stay afloat. Holes in the wall, bottle by his bed. Rain on the window, quite as a tear
And if you never felt ’em, never know they’re here. If you would, Lord, send a boat. If you would, Lord, send a boat. Holes in his past, empty as his head. Someone’s cryin’ in the hall. If you would, Lord, send a boat. Someone’s cryin’ in the hall. If you would, Lord, send a boat.
