Laurie BeechmanSailin' On

When I was four or five or six The sea rocked me to sleep And simple dreams would float to me Like bubbles from the deep And sleep was like some opium I smoked on foreign shores And dolphins saw me safely on As my heartstrings pulled the oars And the ship was my bed And the waves were my pillow And the dark sky breathed And the sheets used to billow As I'd go sailin' on Sailin' on I'd go sailin' on in my dreams The seagulls ricocheted against the diamond hard blue sea And mermaids sang and flying fish would dance on air for me I made it home by sunrise as daylight filled the air My face was wet with brine and foam And sand spilled from my hair And the ship was my bed And the waves were my pillow And the dark sky breathed And the sheets used to billow As I'd go sailin' on Sailin' on I'd go sailin' on in my dreams The north wind took me to God knows where Oceans uncharted drunk with salty air And every now and then I feel the need to take to sea Fill my head with wine and winds and just go sailin' free I only need to lay me down Breathe so mild and then The ocean rhythm sweeps me up and I'm a child again And the ship is my bed And the waves are my pillow And the dark sky breaths And the sheets, they all billow As I go sailin' on Sailin' on I go sailin' on my dreams Sailin' on Sailin' on I go sailin' on my dreams
