David Carroll And His Orchestra – The Ship That Never Sailed lyrics

I built a dreamboat to sail the sea
With you by my side when it sailed
Your eyes were the lights
That would guide my way
A love light that never failed

Your arms I fashioned in sails of white
Your kisses to keep breezes warm
And then I pictured your heart of gold
As an anchor in storm

(Sail away, sail away
Don't wait until the dawn
Sail away, sail away)

It's too late, too late
And you are gone
Now here on the shore
As I stand alone and watch
The moon that has paled

I'm left with nothing to call my own
But the ship that never sailed
(The ship that never sailed)
