Turn This Boat Around
Matt & Kim Lyrics

Please direct my call
Like strings and cans through halls
I made some out of lead
And I tried them out from bed
Couldn't make it through the walls

Turn this boat around
We're starting to go down
But it begins to rain
You forgot how dark it stains
Thought it was a drought

La la la, leave it all behind
La la la, see the fight
La la la, make the best of it
La la la, and goodnight

Left turn look both ways
Take breaks on cloudy days
With miles and miles of roads
How'd you know which ones have holes?
I'm glad we didn't stay

La la la, leave it all behind
La la la, see the fight
La la la, until the end
La la la, and goodnight

I recently bought a car and a cd with songs from these artists was left in it with no writing, so glad I finally found the band

Jonathan Bass

A sound that is truly pleasant to the ears

Kelly McCoy

My dad sang me this song at night, when he passed all I could think of was “I thought you could stay...” and each line reverberates in me through this voice, and sends me into a calm state of mind. I like to sometimes think that he is on all those miles of roads, trying to find one that takes him home, but falls into holes.
I miss you dad.
I love you.
I’ll never forget you, please don’t forget me.
Anyways, thanks for listening to me rambles on about my personal problems.

Destiny Hart

That is absolutely beautiful.


I remember listening to this song on repeat/loop in fall of 2009 thru my first existential crisis. Can't say why, but this song and "Life in Technicolor", by coldplay were the two songs that got me out of that bad episode in my life. Thank you Matt & Kim.

Kelly McCoy

Yes, this song really helps put things into perspective, it personally made me greive when I tried to act like my father’s passing was a minor problem. He would have wanted me to smile.
