"Sailing Away" as written by and Chris De Burgh....
Waiting at the water's edge
Watching all the ships
As they are heading for the harbor 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, uu

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, uu

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
