One day you'll turn round and say
"I wish I'd taken your advice and
developed an interest in sailing"
But right up until this day
I have not turned around and said that
I've not even looked like I may

You said it while we were floating
'Cross the lake, getting damp on a boat
In our shorts sitting adjacent
Disconcerted by being removed from our roles

That time we moved the book case
When we got to the door you said
"Put it down, get the measuring tape
And just stop and lets think this through"
Take a moment to think how we can
Get control of the situation

It's very hard to even try
To make someone do something
If they're not inclined
It's a very hard thing to do
No one wants to do something they don't wanna do
Hey hey

We spent ten days in Fiji
I took a wind surfer out
For a moment had an interest in sailing
The wind got caught in my sail
I didn't know how to turn round
I held on tight as I left the bay
And out into the azure sea
Fijian man in a putt putt boat pulled up by me
Dragged me back, my sail furled
How to turn one around I've never learned

Ha ha ha I've never learned
Ha he ha I've never learned
Ha ha ha develop an interest in sailing

Metropolitan Walks had a bunch of unadorned pop doodles recorded that he was planning on maybe doing proper later on but one day realised they were already finished and so dropped his debut album.
