Avant Lyrics

It's not far down to paradise
At least it's not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away
And find tranquillity
The canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Believe me

It's not far to never never land
No reason to pretend
And if the wind is right you can find the joy
Of innocence again
The canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Believe me

Oh oh
Oh oh
Takes me away
To where I've always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free

It gets the best of me
When I'm sailing
All caught up in the reverie
Every word is a symphony
Won't you believe me

It's not far back to sanity
At least it's not for me
And when the wind is right you can sail away
And find serenity
The canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Believe me

Carl Thomas summer rain
Total kissing you

Toni B. Let it flow
City high What would you
So for real Candy rain
Dru Hill Incomplete
And Avant Sailing and so..... are always on repeat

In my feelings don't mind me

I don't mind being alone in this, Avant's version is superior. I have made my decision and I've accepted my truth.

The original deserves an infinite amount of credit of course. Without it, we wouldn't have this version. It is also a great song in its own right.

But Avant brings a perfect tone and his melody is stunning, while still bringing out the power of the words.

He makes the song much more beautiful.

I heard your version on a station that wasn't coming in too clearly. I knew right away that it it was Sailing! Then I Shazamed it at a stop light. Oh my, my, my... I fell in love with someone abt the same time this song came out by C.Cross and with the song. But chile, your version is so so so so sweet. I feel love in the air again!!
