If You Were A Sailboat

If you Were A Sailboat

Inspired by the simple song of the same title by Katie Melua. It is one of my favorite muses because of its innocence and message of blind love.

Painting of a woman in a boat.
“If You Were A Sailboat”
Acrylics On Canvas

If you’re a cowboy I would trail you,
If you’re a piece of wood I’d nail you to the floor.
If you’re a sailboat I would sail you to the shore.
If you’re a river I would swim you,
If you’re a house I would live in you all my days.
If you’re a preacher I’d begin to change my ways.

I let it fall, my heart
And as it fell, you rose to claim it
It was dark and I was over
Until you kissed my lips and you saved me
My hands, they’re strong
But my knees were far too weak
To stand in your arms
Without falling to your feet

Painting Of Lovers Against Wall
Painting Of Lovers Against Wall

Painting of a lovers’ moment against the wall in a private corner. The only company is each other and their shadows.

Somewhere Only We Know
Acrylics on canvas

I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete

I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I’ve been dreaming of?

And if you have a minute, why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go somewhere only we know?
Somewhere only we know

Lyrics Somewhere Only We Know by Keanne

Don’t Speak Lovers Painting

Don’t speak
I know just what you’re saying
So please stop explaining
Don’t tell me cause it hurts
Don’t speak
I know what you’re thinking
I don’t need your reasons
Don’t tell me cause it hurts.” Don’t Speak Lyrics, No Doubt.
