Sail Away with Me, Honey

Music haunts me in these words

What will be will be

I want to hold you now

but I don't

I wanted to hold you then
not now

You don't hold me
not now

You did once
and that hold was strangling
on my soul

How did it ever come so far?

The music came through
and carried me away
to you

made me dream
of you and me in an embrace
difference place

and I went to you


Put my heart in your hand
in a different land

Driving through
through years


only the whistle in the refrain
almost done
no more to be sung.
