"Sail Away" as written by Robert S. Nevil, Fredrik Nils Thomander and Anders Wikstrom....
Sail away with me honey
I put my heart in your hands
Sail away with me honey now, now, now
Sail away with me
What will be will be
I want to hold you now, now, now

Crazy skies all wild above me now
Winter howling at my face
And everything I held so dear
Disappeared without a trace
Oh all the times I've tasted love
Never knew quite what I had
Little darling if you hear me now
Never needed you so bad
Spinning round inside my head

Sail away with me honey
I put my heart in your hands
Sail away with me honey now, now, now
Sail away with me
What will be will be
I want to hold you now, now, now

I've been talking drunken gibberish
Falling in and out of bars
Trying to get some explanation here
For the way some people are
How did it ever come so far

Sail away with me honey
I put my heart in your hands
Sail away with me honey now, now, now
Sail away with me
What will be will be
I want to hold you now, now, now
Sail away with me honey
I put my heart in your hands
Sail away with me honey now, now, now
Sail away with me
What will be will be
I want to hold you now, now, now

Sail away with me honey
I put my heart in your hands
It'd break me up if you pulled me down, whoa
Sail away with me
What will be will be
I want to hold you now, now, now

    General CommentBeautiful song. A man longing to be alone with the love of his life who has slipped away somehow (perhaps she left him)... To me this song is about wanting to forget about everything and everyone else in the world and just sail away with the one person you truly love.

    General CommentMy plan was to get a boat-a big boat and I'd get my love and steal him away and take him
    and we'd discover the Exumas...:) We'd find them all...ahh...I'd take him and we'd sail away...

    General CommentLove lost..
    Love taken for granted....

    Crazy skies all wild above me now
    Winter howling at my face
    And everything I held so dear
    Disappeared without a trace
    Oh all the times I've tasted love
    Never knew quite what I had

    General CommentI personally believe this song's meaning is that David Gray has found a love he believes is true love, but he doesn't understand why or how. He's spent so long drowning in false love and hope, but finally found someone he doesn't want to lose so badly he wishes that they could just "sail away" together and forget about the past and everything that could break them apart or make them fall away from eachother. He states, "what will be will be" as he knows where they would be going is different and he can't predict the outcome, but they'll get through it together no matter what happens. Perhaps they already have so many things in their life that are trying to pull them apart.
    All I know is that he loves this person and he feels as if they are drifting apart and he wants nothing more than to leave where they are to heal their relationship.

    General Comment"And everything I held so dear
    disappeared without a trace."

    I think this song is about lost love or missed opportunities. He has come to the realization that his love is slipping away, and he tries to hold on to her and keep her close. Regardless of the meaning, this song is incredibly moving and David's voice only helps to intensify the power of this song.

    General Commentit seems to me that this song denotes that he took someone for granted and now they've gone. he realised how much they meant to him and he wants them back and is trying to come to terms with his loss / stupidity. A fucking brilliant song, can't wait to see him live in Dec 02

    General Commentdefinately a song of missed opportunities.....love for someone that he didnt realize until it was gone and the endless struggle to grab onto to what he needs the most. Great song.....lot of meaning.
