Come Sail Away Lyrics

I'm sailing away
Set an open course for the Virgin Sea
'Cause I've got to be free
Free to face the life that's ahead of me

On board, I'm the captain
So climb aboard
We'll search for tomorrow on every shore
And I'll try, oh Lord, I'll try to carry on

I look to the sea
Reflections in the waves spark 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 pot of gold
But 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 baby
Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me"

I thought that they were Angels, but to my surprise
We climbed aboard their starship, we headed for the skies

Singing, 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

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
Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me

I get lost in what this song is saying, imaging being carried off in a spaceship. Dennis De Young's voice takes away. Its like that in every song he sings. I am back on earth when his songs ends.

First song I fell in love with!! Just think it is like a teenager leaving the house to move to college or to get away from when they leave...like my brother and sister did!

I love this song. I just wish it were like the first half all the way through. The second half sounds like someone got really high while they were writing the song.

great song--esp the part about about childhood friends and the dream we had. I remember my childhood friends and four of us, including me, are dealing with cancer.

I don't care how old this song is, I'm 17 and i have always loved this song. Music wouldn't be the same without bands like this!

Truly an amazing song. Piano, vocals, guitar, and drums were perfectly combined to bring us this masterpiece.
