“Sailing Away”
Artist: Chris de Burgh
Albums: Flying Colours (1988)

Waiting at the water's edge
Watching all the ships as they are heading for the harbour wall
I was just a boy
I was just a boy
Dreaming of the wide world
Dreaming of the wide world

Watching as they disappear
Reading out the names of all the places I have never been
Looking out to sea
Staring out to sea
Dreaming of a wide world
Dreaming of the wide world

I wish I was sailing away
Sailing away
Sailing away
With you tonight
With you tonight

Walking down another street
Underneath the red lights I am watching where the shadows fall
Looking at the girls
Listening to the girls
Dreaming of a new world
Dreaming of that new world

I wish I was sailing away
Sailing away
Sailing away
In your arms tonight
In your arms tonight

I wish I was sailing away
Sailing away
Sailing away
With you now
With you now
