~ James Casey~
Come sail away with me on the ocean tide
We'll man those sails side by side
With the sun on our head, the wind in our face
There could never be a better place
We'll find a paradise island yet unknown
Then claim that island as our own
Where we will frolic together on the sand
Come sail with me to a far away land
Sail away with me we'll ride the squalls
Come sail with me, the ocean calls
It's a rhythmic call for us to sail away
Oh please sail away with me today
Together we'll face sunsets on the sea
Sunsets made special, you're with me
The morning sun will refresh our day
And keep all dangers, far, far away
On our beach we'll soak up the sun
With arms entwined we'll become one
There'll be a hut that I will build
Eat food from the sea freshly grilled
Our island awaits us so please let's go
Let us leave this place so we can grow
Sail away with me on the ocean tide
Where we'll be together side by side
I think of the ships that sail away,
The white-winged ships that sail away,
Freighted with fears and wasted tears,
And joys we gathered for long, long years,
For the possible rainy day.
I sleep, and dream of the white-winged ships
That glide from the shores of life away!
That swiftly glide with the ebbing tide,
Bearing my joys to the farther side.
Into the twilight gray.
O, ships that vanish into the past!
Are none to return to the port at last?
Shall I vainly wait at the seward gate
Beaten, and bruised, and scarred by fate,
Chilled by the winter blast?
The ships that carry my griefs--alas!
Have hulls of iron and shrouds of brass!
The storm's impact leaves them intact,
Though hurled on the jagged rocks of Fact,
Where fearful breakers mass!
