Sailing
by Christopher Cross

Well, 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 tranquility
Oh, 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
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see.
Believe me.

Sailing 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

Fantasy, 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?

Sailing 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

Well it's not far back to sanity, at least it's not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away and find serenity
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see.
Believe me.

Sailing 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

This song takes me back to my childhood during the 80's. A time when life was much simpler and people talked to each other, face to face, for hours. If you needed answers, you rode your bike to the library and hung out with Dewey Decimal. The entire summer was spent at the public pool where the air was full of chlorine, kids were taking turns seeing how far they could swim underwater on one breath, and for snacks we had Mello Yello and Chick-o-Sticks. Riding my bike all over town because everyone knew everyone and we looked out for each other and didn't have to worry about getting snatched up or shot at. If you got in trouble, you're bike was never fast enough to beat the phone call home to your parents and you were held accountable for your actions. No cellphones, no computers, no video games (unless your parents had money). We weren't allowed to sit in the house on a sunny day and we never ate a meal at home that wasn't at the table. My God, how I miss those years. I wish I would have realized how special they were.

As a 17 year old now, I would much rather prefer that way of life. Cant do anything about it unfortunately

When there was more good than evil

Siting here, reading your post as I listen to this, a fully grown man of nearly 47 years, tears are streaming down my face......I so fondly recall those days, when the globalists, the media, the schools and universities, nor politicians used their positions to spread hatred and vitriol 24/7, 365. As far as I knew, everyone loved and respected everyone. There was very little fighting, slinging of name calling and profanities at each other, no riots, no one killing each other in the streets. Everyone that wanted a job had one. We played outside until it was too dark to see. We built lifelong friendships. We cherished our cousins. We cherished family time, and dinner at the table. Moms and dads stayed together, for the sake of the children, and for themselves, and the vows they made to God Almighty. The music was great. The movies were great. Everything was better. As others have stated here, if we had only known how good we had it, maybe we would have bottled it, and carried some of that into the present time. There are very few remnants left of those times. I guess I'm one of them. Sad days we're living in. I pray things might get better. God bless all who are listening and reading....

weird how a 40 year old song still sounds amazing, even to someone in their early twenties

@Tyler Drainville Just curious - any recommendations in terms of recent music? Not saying there isn't much good stuff but it is getting harder to find.

Mozart sounds good and was made hundreds of years ago
