Album Intro:

'If You Were a Sailboat' is a song by Georgian-born British singer Katie Melua. Written and produced by Mike Batt, it is Melua's ninth single and the first from her third album, Pictures (2007). Melua said of the song:

「 What I liked about the song is the fact that a lot of love songs tend to deal with the fluffy nice side of love, but this one deals with how you get very selfish when you fall in love with someone, and you don't want to share them with the world you just want them all about yourself. What's genius about Mike's lyrics is that instead of saying that directly he uses these crazy strange metaphors, 'if you were a piece of wood I'd nail you to the floor' and quite bizarre stuff and I like that. Musically it sounds like a really nice smooth love song, but the message is pretty intense and quite dark.[1] 」

It was released as a single on September 24, 2007. The CD single has three extra tracks exclusive to the release, including a version of David Gray's 'This Year's Love'. In the week of 30 September, the song debuted at number twenty-three on the UK Singles Chart.
