Sail away, sail away my little boy
Let the wind fill your heart with light and joy
Sail away my little boy

Let the rain wash away your cloudy days
Sail away into a dream
Let the wind send you a fantasy
Of the ancient silver sea

Now you see that only dreams
Can send you where you want to be
Now you find those faces
Are not holding places
Where you thought they'd be
And later as you go again
You will agree
That it was all a dream

Sail away, sail away my little boy
Let the wind fill your heart with light and joy
Sail away my little boy

    General CommentAfraid sucks sooooo much compared to the original but I actually prefer this one over Nico's, but it's probably only because I never liked her version that much.

    General CommentThe comment above doesn't make any sense. First it says this version is not as good as the original. Then it says they don't like the original and they prefer this version......:S

    Anyways.

    Nico wrote this song for her one and only son; Ari.

    General CommentNo. I think major key meant that Wolf's "Afraid" was worse than Nico's, but Wolf's "Ari's Song" was better than Nico's. :) I think I agree with major key.
