This is the first instance of a series of songs that draw their imagery and topoi from navigation and being at sea. It’s the main thread to be found throughout the album in its entirety, as the title-track ‘Keep Me From Drowning’ already suggests. The queen of my heart (has been for the last 14 years) now lives in Lisbon, where I wrote the majority of the lyrics for this album. Without her I wouldn’t have this song and certainly not this video (she shot it and got me out of bed at 6). The back and forth between Portugal and Switzerland had me feeling like a working seaman of old, boarding a ship but leaving at least half a heart on land, wondering when he might get back to that place, to that person, to his haven. Lyrics I’ve been docking at night slight touch on the side ropes get thrownI watch them glide by and by on my own I quicken my pace as though I’m in a race till I’m at your door would you let me in lay me down would you let me sin all night who decides how much time we own? oh lord, will the tide delay, if implored, its flow? I must be off and leave you here’s a song god knows in how long I’d see you hope I’m wrong had to lay down once more at your side hope I’m too late to board this time who decides, how many oars to enrol? who divines, who will chart our course? I hope this time I’ll find it sooner than before this hallowed ground underneath my soles may the heavens collide and storm me back on safer grounds may the stars realign and misguide us back ahead of time before I ran my course before I’m swallowed whole before I even left you at all before I left you at all
