sky sailing lyrics

“take me somewhere nice”

take me somewhere nice
to some tired island
in your heart called
paradise

though we wander home
we both feel alone
like escapees with nowhere to go

i can think of a thousand ways
to get good and lost
beyond these hopeless days

where we’ll rendezvous
out of the blue,
and take a deep breath,
just we two.

and we’ll be so far gone,
the oars will roll on
and we will happily
wave so long.

if we hook a dream,
and it tows us back down
this open stream
we’ll say h*llo.
oh, oh,
take us wherever you go.

take me somewhere deep,
’cause i’m quite exhausted
and i need to sleep.

or climb the great divide,
or wake up beside myself,
just to know i’m alive.

every wait around
pays me a visit and
drags my eyelids down
they sting like growing pains
iced in the veins
of a guy who’s not ready to die.

if i may be so bold,
i’ll weather the cold,
’cause i’m not afraid
to grow old.

if we hook a dream,
and it tows us back down this open stream,
we’ll say h*llo,
oh, oh,
take us wherever you go.
