Sail away

A rose-stoned tune
A rose had hip old in June
Barefoot upon the lawn
The doctor came at dawn
I know the daily game
And Suzie banana came
Through frosted windowpine
Your father on the train
And everywhere the snow falls
Sail away, sail away, sail away
A pale, faded blue
A Rubens ochre view
One deep winter’s day
The winds on market day
People say everywhere the snow falls
Sail away, sail away, sail away
She’s moving down to the seaside
‘Cos that’s where he comes from
He gave away all of her records
Is that where she belongs?
Better think it through
Remember who, is it something new
Or is it you again?
Sail away, sail away, sail away
So take your red gown
And go down to the down
To do as you please
On the streets of your town
If whistling comes chuck it out of your mind
It could be the day when you finally say
Sail away, sail away, sail away
To sail away and on and on
I sail, you sail, I sail, you sail
Do you remember how?
Do you remember how?
Do you remember how we used to live?
