about

Working on a cruise line for two years took me away from home and out of my marriage. This was a life-changing song, written in New York City between cruises.

lyrics

Chorus:
SAILING AWAY today
The City ‘neath my feet
Takin' me there
To where the view is open sea
Vast overhead ahead
As far as you can see
Sailing today
Away, away

Carrying you with me
Having you by me
Holding on and surviving
My time is arriving
Anew on my own
Inspired by strength and a new kind of caring
I'm traveling and traveling to nowhere called home

CHORUS

Loving you freely
Creating within me
Born anew and renewing
Fate boiling and brewing
I’m on to it now
Inspired by God and a new way of seeing
I’m traveling and traveling to where I am now

CHORUS

Bridge:
Willing and waiting
Without hesitating
I’m still navigating to you

Love is an ocean
It draws you and calls you
Seducing your spirit
All you do is hear it
And you must be free
The song is forever in spite of your wishes
You’re traveling and traveling on your way to me

SAILING AWAY today
The City ‘neath your feet
Takin' you there
To where
The view is open sea
Vast overhead ahead
As far as you can see
Sailing today away, away

CHORUS
