"I Will Go Sailing No More" as written by and Newman Randy....
Out among the stars I sail, way beyond the moon
In my silver ship I sail, a dream that ended to soon
Now I know exactly who I am and what I'm here for
And I will go sailing no more

All the things I thought I'd be, all the brave things I'd done
Vanished like a snowflake with the rising of the sun
Never more to sail my ship, where no man has gone before
And I will go sailing no more

But no, it can't be true I could fly if I wanted to
Like a bird in the sky if I believe I can fly, why I'd fly
Clearly, I will go sailing, no more

    General CommentI think this song is so sad. Even though it's about a toy who's just discovered he's a toy and not a super hero, it can also be applied to anyone who's lost their confidence or can't accomplish their dreams for whatever reason.

    Song MeaningOn a broad stance, this song is about when a person comes to the realization that all their dreams, fantasies, hopes, and beliefs are nothing more than dreams, fantasies, hopes, and beliefs. That everything that they believed in is false. Let that sink in for a bit, and you'll really get the meaning of the song.
