Sailing Away
by Firkin

Sailing away on the wings of the mist I
Gazed at the stars and I found my way
Failing to make ends meet in Cork I
Tried my luck from a western bay.
The wind felt good as I set me sails
For far fetched hopes beyond the horizon
And the ocean splashed and the land slipped by
I burned my burning memories aye

'Twas early in the morning, past mourning my life and my once so beloved wife
Never ending beginnings, here I reach out to you with the morning stars
Take me for all I'm worth and if I happen to stumble don't let me down
And if I happen to go astray, I trust you'll appear to me and come to light my way
You'll come to light my way
You'll come to light my way
You'll come to light my way

The froth on the deck was caressing my heart
And my eyes kept licking on the far horizon
I finally made out the crying signs
That burned my flesh and urged me to go on
You see I never really cared for never-ending stories
But here I am on my way again
No longer afraid of the power and the glory

Who knows what I'm worth? Back in Cork in famine I could hardly tell
But I know if I go astray, you'll appear to me again to light my way
Will come to light my way
You'll come to light my way
You'll come to light my way

I trust you'll appear to me and light my way
I'm sailing away
I'm sailing away
Come and light my way
And I'm sailing away
Come and light my way
Come and light my way
Come to light my way.
