​Sailing Away

This song is by Chris de Burgh and appears…


Waiting at the water's edge
Watching all the ships as they are heading for the harbour wall
I was just a boy, I was just a boy
Dreaming of the wide world, dreaming of the wide world

Watching as they disappear
Reading out the names of all the places I have never been
Looking out to sea, staring out to sea,
Dreaming of a wide world, dreaming of the wide world

I wish I was sailing away, sailing away,
Sailing away, with you tonight, with you tonight

Walking down another street
Underneath the red lights, I am watching where the shadows fall
Looking at the girls, listening to the girls
Dreaming of a new world, dreaming of that new world

I wish I was sailing away, sailing away,
Sailing away, in your arms tonight,
In your arms tonight

I wish I was sailing away, sailing away,
Sailing away, with you now, with you now...
