Rod Stewart – Sailing lyrics

(gavin sutherland, 1972)

I am sailing, I am sailing,
Home again cross the sea.
I am sailing, stormy waters,
To be near you, to be free.

I am flying, I am flying,
Like a bird cross the sky.
I am flying, passing high clouds,
To be with you, to be free.

Can you hear me, can you hear me
Thro the dark night, far away,
I am dying, forever trying,
To be with you, who can say.

Can you hear me, can you hear me,
Thro the dark night far away.
I am dying, forever trying,
To be with you, who can say.

We are sailing, we are sailing,
Home again cross the sea.
We are sailing stormy waters,
To be near you, to be free.

Oh lord, to be near you, to be free.
Oh lord, to be near you, to be free,
Oh lord.

    This Song connects me to my late Mother who loved this song above all the other Rod Stewart songs. I like to believe that the lyrics represent the longing to be with the one you love but have lost. 'Can you hear me, through the dark night far away. ' - like in death, we can't see or hear the ones we've lost but they are there whispering to us and stil loving us trying to be with us, perhaps in our dreams as we fly like birds and sail stormy waters to be with them.
    But that is just me.
