(Kendall, Niven)

Adrift out on an open sea
A life raft seekin' company
Sailing on a sea insane
Rolling with the waves of pain
Chance determines destiny
Tide can be the enemy
When the moon is shining bright
It hangs there like a becon light

Your're looking for a place to stay
A place to leave another day
Water leaves no trace behind
Of all the ways your life unwinds

So sail away
Sail away
Sail away
Sail away

As you come you come alone
All you are is what you know
Dependent on your memory
Remember who you used to be
Reason is a raging wind
Beating on your weathered skin
Confusion is the tidal flow
Pulls you like an undertow

Adrift out on a sea of tears
Navigating by your fears
Searching in the stars above
A way to find your isles of love

So sail away
Sail away
Sail away
Sail away

A sea of faces flow by me
Islands of identity
Isolated constantly
No ones's where he ought to be

So sail away
Sail away
Sail away
Sail away
