sailing away lyrics – chris de burgh

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,

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,

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…
