Sailing On - Lyrics

Sailing on towards the sun
As she rolls on and on

Tell me how you belong to the day
How the sound from the ground tells a tale
About you, about you, about you

Even all the things you thought were holy, were dreams
Even all the times you kept, so lonely were schemes
And with every song an afterglow of
Broken wings, break and cringe
Walk round me, evergreen
Lonely days like tidal waves
Ivory skin is heavenly

And every time you open up your eyes
Shining through the night with no disguise, oh darling
I don't even, even know your name like you claim

Rainy days to summer haze
Miles and miles of wintry smiles

Tell me now what it is that you found
Can you hear how a heart beats and pounds
About you, about you, about you

Even all the things you thought were holy, were dreams
Even all the times you kept so lonely, were schemes
And with every song an afterglow of
All them kids, hide and seek
Coming spring and the enemy
Self defence like common sense
How bout your innocence?

And every time you open up your eyes
Shining through the night with no disguise, oh darling
I don't even know what we became, anyway
And every time you open up your eyes
Shining through the night with no disguise, oh darling
I don't even, even know your name, like you claim
