Lyrics


I am sailing

I am sailing

Home again

'Cross the sea

I am sailing,

Stormy waters

To be near you,

To be free


I am flying,

I am flying

Like a bird

'Cross the sky

I am flying,

Passing high clouds

To be with you,

To be free


Can you hear me, can you hear me

Through the dark night, far away

I am dying, forever crying

To be with you, who can say


Can you hear me, can you hear me

Through the dark night far away

I am dying, forever crying

To be with you, who can say


We are sailing, we are sailing

Home again

'Cross the sea

We are sailing

Stormy waters

To be near you,

To be free


Oh Lord, to be near you, to be free

Oh Lord, to be near you, to be free

Oh Lord, to be near you, to be free

Oh Lord
