Help me find a song "Drowning in you"

... or something like that. This is going to be a tough one:

I heard it once, quite a few months back, in some sort of recorded old timey radio show sort of thing. I have no idea what station, or what sort of stuff is normally played on the station. The show was a random collection of naval-themed stuff.

The song was some sort of love song, generally sentimental and folksy-sounding. This is the sort of song that no self-respecting man would ever admit to being interested in. (I'm trying to find it for a friend, right? Right.)

The male vocalist lamented about some sort of love-related thing, using repeated naval or sailing or capsizing-related metaphors. I think the lyrics included stuff like the following, very loosely recalled:
"I'm over my head"
"there's noone around"
"drowning in you"
repeatedly saying "time" or something like that

The only other hint I can recall is that the radio guy mentioned that he vocalist was now sipping some sort of beverage on Lake Michigan, or something, implying he is retired in that area. Of course I have no idea if the recording is recent, or older, so that may not be a useful detail.

I've spent a long time Googling variations of the above information, and I've found this is a pretty common theme in a lot of popular music. I know this is pretty vague and sparse, but I know one of you sailors must have heard this romantic tune and remembered it...
