Mark Mcguinn — Love Don't Float lyrics

(Mark McGuinn/Jim Foster)

I've been staring out the window all day
I keep seeing your ship sail away
I just read your letter last night
Now you're so far out of sight
I held a treasure in my hand
I lost it like a shell in the sand
You're out there in deep blue
My heart's there with you

There is an island
Two lovers aim for
Sailin' together
To reach that shore
You only get so many chances
You can't afford to miss the boat
Or your heart will go sinkin'
'Cause love don't float

I'll be waitin' til you throw me a line
Honey I'll know what to do this time
I'm never gonna give up hope
I wait for the boat

There is an island
Two lovers aim for
Sailin' together
To reach that shore
You only get so many chances
You can't afford to miss the boat
Or your heart will go sinkin'
'Cause love don't float

Sinkin' and sinkin' and sinkin' and sinkin'
Love don't float
