He brings me coffee and teas from overseas
He brings a lighthouse to my door
And in the books he reads he finds the keys that make him so sweet
Like bare feet on hardwood floor

But where is he hiding the textbooks and binding they’re fading away
The currents pull south where the poets all drown
It won’t be the first time I lose to the city

Lost in a cave, we heard a siren cry
The sailor said he was in awe
The water pours through Brooklyn skies and people run, they run on by
We just walk

But where will we hide, future will not abide, she’s right on our heels
The people will march, artists don’t have the heart
They do, they think, they feel

And the lights they keep changing
They stop and go, we’ll start it slow
They’re just lights after all no one cares, so we’ll stall
Wasting time with you is fine by me
Shadows can’t be given borderlines
So we’ll try

Sail away with me
Sail away with me

He brings me coffee and teas from overseas
But sometimes just the corner store
I’ve seen his dark side I’ll admit, once he lied
But I have told an awful lie before
Now I’ll have bare feet on hardwood floor
And I’ll sing to the sailor from the shore

Sail away with me, I said
Sail away with me
