about

I live near the ferry that connects LaHave and Riverport. Riding the ferry is one of my favourite things about where I live. But missing it can be even better.

lyrics

We missed the ferry by minutes
And I said “I can’t wait.
There’s a dark beach down the road
And it’s calling out our names
There’s a sleeping bag in the back
And I long to feel your hands
Hold me while you kiss me and
We lose my glasses in the sand.”
Yeah, we lost my glasses in the sand

And this fever that’s between us, oh! I hope it lasts forever
Cause I long to have your lightning eyes and all your stormy weather
Sitting with me in the car in another 40 years
And we’ll be running late and you will say, “My dear—

Oh! we missed the ferry by minutes” and you’ll say,
“I can’t wait. There’s a dark beach just down the road
And it’s calling out our names
There’s a sleeping bag in the back
And my blood is all a-roar”
And we will catch the next ferry
Yeah we will catch the next ferry
Maybe we’ll catch the next ferry
And go home and kiss some more
Go home and kiss some more

We missed the ferry by minutes
And we said “We can’t wait.
There’s a dark beach down the road
And it’s calling out our names.”
