Laurie Beechman – Sailin' On lyrics

When I was four or five or six
The sea rocked me to sleep
And simple dreams would float to me
Like bubbles from the deep
And sleep was like some opium I smoked on foreign shores
And dolphins saw me safely on
As my heartstrings pulled the oars

And the ship was my bed
And the waves were my pillow
And the dark sky breathed
And the sheets used to billow
As I'd go sailin' on
Sailin' on
I'd go sailin' on in my dreams

The seagulls ricocheted against the diamond hard blue sea
And mermaids sang and flying fish would dance on air for me
I made it home by sunrise as daylight filled the air
My face was wet with brine and foam
And sand spilled from my hair

And the ship was my bed
And the waves were my pillow
And the dark sky breathed
And the sheets used to billow
As I'd go sailin' on
Sailin' on
I'd go sailin' on in my dreams

The north wind took me to God knows where
Oceans uncharted drunk with salty air

And every now and then I feel the need to take to sea
Fill my head with wine and winds and just go sailin' free
I only need to lay me down
Breathe so mild and then
The ocean rhythm sweeps me up and I'm a child again

And the ship is my bed
And the waves are my pillow
And the dark sky breaths
And the sheets, they all billow
As I go sailin' on
Sailin' on
I go sailin' on my dreams

Sailin' on
Sailin' on
I go sailin' on my dreams
