Sailboats Lyrics

Sailboats wish that they were stars,
Floating softly in the sky,
Among the spheres that bid goodbye.
Moving through transparent seas,
Drifting through the stratosphere,
And onward till they disappear.

The continents from overhead,
Look like tiny paper shapes,
Intricately set in place.
Below the airplanes and the clouds,
There's a lovely silver bay,
Where sailors often hide away.


An airplane carried me to bed,
Where I slept above the coast,
And dreamt I had become a ghost.
I sailed above the mountain peaks,
Deep in underwater caves,
And somehow I walked on the waves.

Scuba diver in the loch,
Speedboat driver on the dock,
Sailplane pilot in the blue,
Take me up there with you.
Ocean freighter and
A bountiful of snow.

I was walking through the trees,
I was sailing through the seas,
I was falling through the air,
When it hit me right there.
The seagull doesn't even care
about the news.


Do boats get lonely in the night?
When the side walks fill with leaves,
And joggers taste the evening breeze.

Buildings, and freeways,
and street lights, and painted pavements
Hotels, and on ramps,
and road signs at the trail.

Branches, and sky ways,
and railroads, and heavy traffic
Runways, and restaurants,
and subways in the air.

Inlets, and harbors,
and islands, and white sand beaches
Skylines, and sunsets
where ocean meets the sky.

Drive the car on the run,
Fly the jet to the sun.
Bring the spaceship in soon,
While I'll play golf on the moon.
My eyes are tired,
And I fall asleep,

Once in 1964,
(Sailboats wish that they were stars)
An actress ran on the shore.
(Sailboats wish that they were stars)
Dancing slow and in turn,
I love you Audrey Hepburn.
Steal your statue back and
we'll fall in love.

This is one of the few songs that would actually go deep into my soul and open my mind. It invaded my imagination and i felt everything in it happened to me. It was so real. Truly one of a kind...

It's a shame that Seagull Orchestra has stopped updating their work. The sincerity and effort put into this song is evident and that is what makes it so beautiful.
