"Sail On By" as written by and Telfer Posser....
We used to play down by the water
When the spring was in the tide
And there was me and Kat McLuskey
And we ran down side by side

Those games and sweet collisions
Led to kisses like wet sand
I tried to hold the springtime back
Too young to understand

Sail, sail on by
Over the deep dark ocean
'Til the day I die
Let the motion carry me

In time I stood beside the harbour
Just to watch the gulls in flight
And there were girls so full of summer
They couldn't sleep at night

They moved so ripe and careless
They let their shadows fall
I closed my eyes against the sun
For I couldn't see at all

Sail, sail on by
Over the deep dark ocean
'Til the day I die
Let the motion carry me

The northeast wind is blowing stronger
The days are getting short
And some who once turned their heads round
They're running home to port

You'd keep me if you could, my love
You'd keep the world from harm
On empty sands we'd walk and walk
Together arm in arm

Sail, sail on by
Over the deep dark ocean
'Til the day I die
Let the motion carry me

Sail, sail on by
Over the deep dark ocean
'Til the day I die
Let the motion carry me

Let the motion carry me
