  Come Sail Away
Styx

1977

 I'm sailing away
Set an open course for the Virgin Sea

'Cause I've got to be free
Free to face the life that's ahead of me

On board I'm the captain
So climb aboard

We'll search for tomorrow
On every shore and I'll try

Oh Lord I'll try To carry on


I look to the sea
Reflections in the waves spark my memory

Some happy some sad
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had

We live happily forever
So the story goes

But somehow we missed out
On that pot of gold

But we'll try best that we can To carry on

A gathering of angels
Appeared above my head
They sang to me this song of hope
And this is what they said

They said, come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me (lads)
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me (baby)
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me

I thought that they were angels
But to my surprise

We climbed aboard their starship
We headed for the skies

Singing, come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me (lads)
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
