"Sailing Ships from Heaven" as written by and Batt....
And she played the harmonium down by the sea
Singing God save the USA and God save me

And though God never had, she believed Him to be
On his way

She had lived out in Paris before Paris fell
Singing, when will I hear again from Jean-Michel?

And she prayed for his soul and she hoped he was well
Anyway

Hold on
For the sailing ships from heaven won’t be long
Play on
Till the sailing ships from heaven come along

And she laughed, don’t be sad like the boys in the trees
They will be waiting for the world to face

She said when they were young they went down on their knees
For my love

Hold on
For the sailing ships from heaven won’t be long
Play on
Till the sailing ships from heaven come along

And she walked on the beach in the wind and the rain
Singing why don’t you ask me why I feel no pain?

And the reason that keeps me from going insane
It's my love

Hold on
For the sailing ships from heaven won’t be long
Play on
Till the sailing ships from heaven come along

Hold on
For the sailing ships from heaven won’t be long
Play on
Till the sailing ships from heaven come along
