Stix – Sailing Away lyrics

I'm sailing away.
Set an open course for the Virgin Sea.
'Cause I've got to be free,
Free to face a life that's ahead of me.
On board I'm the captain,
So climb aboard.
We'll search for tommorow,
On every shore.
And I'll try,
Oh Lord I'll try,
To carry on.

I look to the sea.
Reflections in the waves,
Spike my memory.
Some happy, some sad.
I think of childhood friends,
And the dreams we had.

We lived happily forever,
So the story goes.
But somehow we missed out,
On the pots of gold.
And we'll try best that we can,
To carry on.

A gathering of angels,
Appeared above my head.
They sang to me this song of hope,
And this is what they said.

They said
Come sail away,
Come sail away,
Come sail away with me, lads.
Come sail away,
Come sail away
Come sail away with me.
Come sail away,
Come sail away,
Come sail away with me.
Come sail away come sail away come sail away with me.


I thought that they were angels,
But to my suprise,
They climbed aboard the star ship,
And headed for the sky.

Come sail away,
Come sail away,
Come sail away with me.

(repeat till end fading)
