"Sail Away" as written by Robert S. Nevil, Fredrik Nils Thomander and Anders Wikstrom....
Once upon a time, we had a lot to fight for
We had a dream, we had a plan
Sparks in the air, we spread a lot of envy
Didn't have to care, once upon a time

Remember when I swore
That love was never ending
That you and I would never die
Remember when I swore
We had it all
We had it all

Sail away, it's time to leave
Rainy days are yours to keep
Fade away, the night is calling my name
You will stay, I'll sail away

Once upon a time, we used to burn candles
We had a place to call a home
The dream that we lived was better than divine
Every day was like a gift, once upon a time

Remember when you swore
Your love was never ending
That you and I will never die
Remember when you swore
We had it all
We'd never fall

Sail away, it's time to leave
Rainy days are yours to keep
Fade away, the night is calling my name
You will stay, I'll sail away

No reason to lie
No need to pretend
I'm grateful to die
To live once again
I'm fearless to fly
And reach for the end
And reach for the end

Sail away...

Sail away, it's time to leave
Rainy days are yours to keep
Fade away, the night is calling my name
You will stay, I'll sail away

Sail away...
The night is calling my name
Sail away...

    Great song, I agree that the song is bout leaving something or probably a relationship behind and moving forward. But i'm not sure if the relationship or he himself is dying, and if the rainy days are those in the relationship or in life itself.

    General Commentfor me it's like he died and he's remembering stuff that he used to do and all and left his girlfriend or whatever because he's dead

    or, i'm most convinced by meaning the he is leaving someone and although is like dying, he is living again like a new beggining start again

    also i love this song

    General CommentI don't really see it as moving on, at least not in a good way.

    How grateful to die
    To live once again
    Im fearless to fly
    And reach for the end

    The fact that he says he's reaching for the end makes me think he is actually going to die. He's fearless to fly because he feels that after death, he will be free.

    Song MeaningWell, I think it's not about a love story ending, but dead instead; they lived all their lives together loving each other and now he's gonna die, so he reminds her all the moments they shared. Lastly, he says he's not afraid to "sail away", and urges her to keep on living her life also without him. About the line in which he says "How grateful to die - To live once again", I think it may refers to an afterlife in heaven or some.

    By the way, in lyrics I see "greatfull" instead of "grateful", someone should change it.
