"Sail Away" as written by and Coverdale Blackmore....
If you're driftin' on an empty ocean
With no wind to fill your sail,
The future, your horizon,
It's like searchin' for the Holy Grail.
You feel there's no tomorrow,
As you look into the water below.
It's only your reflection,
And you still ain't got no place to go.

Time will show,
When, I don't know.

Sail away tomorrow,
Sailin' far away.
To find it steal or borrow.
I'll be there someday yea-yea-yeah yea-ye-yeah.

Oh woman I keep returnin,
To sing the same old song.
The story's been told, now I'm gettin' old.
Tell me, where do I belong?
Feel like I'm goin' to surrender.
Hard times I've had enough.
If I could find a place, to hide my face,
I believe, I could get back up.

Time will show,
When, I don't know.

Sail away tomorrow,
Sailin' far away.
To find it steal or borrow.
But I'll be there someday yea-yea-yeah yea-yea-yea-yeah.

Sail away tomorrow,
Sailin' far away.
To find it steal or borrow.
But I'll be there someday yea-yea-yeah yea-yea-yea-yeah.

Sail away tomorrow,
Sailin' far away.
To find it steal or borrow.
But I'll be there someday yeah yeah yeah yea-yea-yeah yeah yeah yeah.

    General CommentSail away from your bad times. Sailing away will take sometime so be very patient. Good times,bad times. Keep sailing away from the negative and through perseverance and positive vibes you will reach your pot of gold which is true love and a good life,my friends. Life is a journey with a beautiful destination. Keep the faith and never give up. Cliches are the truth!
