I took her out of her world and put her into mine
I took away what she knew, had treasured over time

Let's sail away, baby
I can't explain what I see
Let's sail away, baby
Please try and follow me

I took her out of her home, a cabin near the woods
And took her to this desert with threatening
Neighborhoods

Well I believe, baby
I thought it was better for us
Yes I believe, baby
There was gold in that dust
 
And now I see, baby
I put distance into your own life
Let's sail away, baby
Let's sail into this life

She drove a golf white diesel, she drove me through the
Streets
She took me into her world of parks and wooden seats

And I remember, baby
I remember it all
Yes I remember, baby
I remember it all
Let's sail away, baby
I thought it was better for us
And I believe, baby
I believe in us
