"Sail Away" as written by and Randy Newman....
Lock the door, sun's a fallin'.
Poke the fire, don't let the cold in.
Gonna try to sail away from the rest of my life.

Found a boat to make the break in.
Filled with hope 'bout the step I'm takin'.
Gonna try to sail away from the rest of my life.

Spent a long time list'ning to the captain of the sea,
Shoutin' orders to his crew; no one hears but me.

Cast away, tide's a runnin'

Hoist the sail, strong wind's comin'.
Gonna try to sail away from the rest of my life.

Spent a long time list'ning to the captain of the sea,
Shoutin' orders to his crew; no one hears but me.

Lock the door, sun's a fallin'.
Poke the fire, don't let the cold in.
Gonna try to sail away from the rest of my life.
Gonna try to sail away from the rest of my life.

    General CommentThis is one of the 2 studio-recorded songs that didn't make the cut for O.A.R.'s 2nd studio release, Soul's Aflame. It's a pretty neat sing, but there's not really much to it as far as lyrics go. If anyone plans on burning Souls Aflame onto CD, I would suggest putting it as the last track. Also, the other (and much better in my opinion) unreleased song that didn't make it on Souls Aflame is Earthward. This song should be placed as track 7 I believe.
