 Become A Better Singer In Only 30 Days, With Easy Video Lessons!

So many years ago but I remember
A distant sunset on the open sea
Fascinated by the sailing ships
On a crimson shore that seemed to call out to me

I still can feel the hope that fills my heart
I still can taste the ocean breeze (sail away)

As I sail away to the farthest reaches
Follow the sun to the white sand beaches
I only know what the west wind teaches
Won't you sail away with me?

(Sail away) made a wish upon a falling star
(Sail away) never thought that we would get this far (sail away)
I won't be lonely you can be my only
Won't you sail away with me?

For a while I almost gave up dreaming
But still this image stayed alive in my soul
While I was working trying to make a living
My so-called life was spinning out of control

Summer wind was blowing through my head
The endless current of my dreams (sail away)

As I sail away to the farthest reaches
Follow the sun to the white sand beaches
I only know what the west wind teaches
Won't you sail away with me? (sail away)

Sail away to a land without time
Drink my water from a shell that I find
I won't be lonely you can be my only
Won't you sail away with me?

Oh, let me take you there to another land
Don't expect the world to understand (sail away)

We can sail away while we still have time
There's a million places that I have in mind
As we cast our fate to the open sea
Sail away with me

(Sail away) made a wish upon a falling star
Never thought that we would get this far
Try and imagine how our life would be
If you could sail away with me

Sail away
