about

An allegorical tale of love in the flood. A song I wrote for someone I love released on the day when we all try to love each other just a little bit more.

lyrics

Let's build an Ark,
Taller than the trees.
Let's build an Ark,
Darling help me please.

I will chop the wood
If you collect the beasts
And we'll wait for stormy seas.

When it rains, rains, rains,
We'll be safe, safe, safe,
When there's storms, storms, storms
We'll be warm, warm, warm.

Let's build an ark,
Grander than a whale,
Let's build it tall,
With white, majestic sails,

I will stitch the cloth,
If you predict the gales,
And we'll wait for stormy seas.

When there's storms above,
We'll have love, love, love
When you're lost at sea,
Darling you'll have me.

When the rains they come,
When the world it floods,
We will rise above,
You and me.

When the rains they come,
When the world it floods,
We will rise above,
You and me.

Let's build an Ark,
Taller than the trees.
Let's build an Ark,
Darling help me please.

I will chop the wood
If you collect the beasts
And we'll wait for stormy seas

When it rains, rains, rains,
We'll be safe, safe, safe,
When there's storms, storms, storms
We'll be warm, warm, warm.

When there's storms above,
We'll have love, love, love
When you're lost at sea,
Darling you'll have me.
