Chris de Burgh - Sailing away
Tekst en muziek: Chris de Burgh
(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



Oho hohoho, oho hohoho
Oho hohoho, oh oh ohohohohoh



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



Oho hohoho, oho hohoho
Oho hohoho, ohohohohoh



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
