"Sailing" as written by and Christopher C. Cross....
Well it's not far down to paradise
At least it's not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away
And find tranquility
Oh, the canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Baby believe me, oh

It's not far to Never Never Land
No reason to pretend
And if the wind is right you can find the joy
Of innocence again
Oh, the canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Baby believe me, oh

Sailing (takes me away)
Takes me away
To where I've always heard it could be
(I heard it could be)
Just a dream and a wind to carry me
(Soon I will be free)
Soon I will be free, yeah

Fantasy, it gets the best of me
When I'm sailing, sailing
All the world in a reverie
Every word is a symphony
Won't you believe me, oh

Sailing (takes me away)
(Takes me away)
Takes me away to where I want to be
(To where I've always heard it could be)
(I heard it could be)
Just a dream and a wind to carry me
(Soon I will be free)
Soon I will be free

Well it's not far back to sanity
At least it's not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away
And find serenity
Oh, the canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Baby believe me, oh

Sailing (takes me away)
Takes me away
(To where I've always heard it could be)
I heard it could be
(Heard it could be)
Just a dream and a wind to carry me
(Soon I will be free)
Soon I will be free, free

(Sailing takes me away)
(To where I've always heard it could be)
I heard it could be
(I heard it could be)
Just a dream and a wind to carry me
(Soon I will be free)
Soon I will be free, yeah

    General CommentI started loving Nsync ryte after I heard 'em sing this song...fer real. So maybe, i'm not a fan of their other songs, but truth is, it's how they sing it. how they blend, and their vocalizing and stuff...it's good stuff! But this song brings a lot of bittersweet memories...like, an X. =(

    General CommentNSYNC is a great band and they make great harmonies together, especially with this song. Their voices just blend so great together. This song could put someone to sleep. I think it's one of their best songs.

    General Commentwow...simply amazing....this song is just ...a testament to how skilled and musically talented....Christopher Cross is. nsync should be given jail time for this travesty..if you are gonna cover a classic masterpiece, then dont screw it up. what a travesty almost as bad as britney spears cover of (i love) rock and roll and (cant get no) satisfaction *cries*
