I was lookin' out on dry land, no intentions, I didn't have no plans
That's when I knew, no doubt, I had hit bottom and I was getting out

No more people to hold me down, fight the ghost in my hometown
All the walls will crumble down

So I called up my man Michael, dropped everything and oh
We don't need directions, to do what we need done
And we learn to travel lightly, we learn to travel strong
If we never lost the fire, we'd win before too long

No you don't look back and you can't delay, you've got to sail away

[Chorus]
Sail away, we may not ever be coming back this way
Sail away, another place to be, another day
Sail away, sail away

And we're too controlled for laughing, whereas nothing could go wrong
When we met with two more strangers that were friends before too long
And we switched them together, could take on the whole world
No regrets, no longing, got things the way they were

No you don't look back and you can't delay, got to sail away

[Chorus]

No more people to hold me down, fight the ghost in my home town
All the walls will crumble down

And sail away, we may not ever be coming back this way
Sail away, another place to be, another day
Sail away, we may not ever be coming back this way
Sail away, another place to be, another day

You got to sail away, come on and sail away
Sailin' yeah, you've got to sail away, sailin' yeah, come on and sail away
Sailin' yeah, come on and sail away, sailin' yeah, sailin', sail away...
