Sailing Ships Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Do you remember standing on the shore
Your head in the clouds your pockets filled with dreams
Bound for glory on the seven seas of life
But the ocean is deeper than it seems

The wind was with you when you left on the morning tide
You set your sail for an island in the sun
On the horizon, dark clouds up ahead
For the storm has just begun

Take me with you, take me far away
And lead me to the distant shore

Sail your ship across the water
Spread your wings across the sky
Take the time to see you're the one who holds the key
Or sailing ships will pass you by

You cry for mercy when you think you've lost your way
You drift alone, if all your hope is gone
And find the strength and you will see
That you controlled your destiny after all is said and done

So take me with you, take me far away
And lead me to the distant shore

Sail your ship across the water
Spread your wings across the sky
Take the time to see you're the one who holds the key
Or sailing ships will pass
Sailing ships will pass you
Sailing ships will pass you by

Take me with you, take me far away
We'll ride the wind across the sky
Spread your wings and you will see
You control, your destiny
So sailing ships don't pass you by

So take me with you, take me far away
We'll ride the wind across the sky
Spread your wings and you will see
You control, your destiny
So sailing ships don't pass
Sailing ships don't pass you
Sailing ships don't pass you by

Baby, baby, baby, baby
You'll find that you're the only one
Can sail your ship across the sky
