I'm in the middle of my life, got a crisis and a wife In a car that goes too fast I am living in the past Running wild like a little child not a man. Party like I'm back in school breaking every kind of rule I took a walk the other day down the shore of Galway Bay And what do I find, my peace of mind there. So fly me to freedom, you can try me for treason cuz I've been unfair to my man up there for so long And it hurts to think so, but I've got to go where I belong I belong long gone, I 'm going Just like a shepherd of the sea See what the ocean brings to me But do I mean it when I say that I could leave it all today To come and live here with my soul? Fly me to freedom... I'm going I found my gospel in the winds that blow Up on the clifftops where the heather grows I'd been waiting for the sun to rise bUt I'd been looking eastward with western eyes Fly me to freedom... I'm going Just a thought before I leave, what of you and what of me? Do I mean it when I say that I could leave it all today? Such is the price of living your life.

Tell me again, oh the story of the man who Had everything until she up and gone and ran to The arms of another man Well he stole my baby, I begged her to stay I kept her waiting, so she left to betray But she didn't know that I, I'd have been here before And when I couldn't close my eyes, I couldn't take any more Hey hey, that's what I say now Now all my friends, they say that seeing is believing But that depends on what you want to be achieving When all you had is gone Well he stole my baby, I'd begged her to stay I kept on waiting, for two years and a day But she didn't know that I, I could see through the door And when I couldn't close my eyes, I couldn't take any more Hey hey, that's what I say now I know there is love now, I know it's true But my baby's blue now... I've never seen her quite like this But that's what you get with a kiss So hey hey, that's what I say now And so it ends like any other fascination He's on the mend, he gets another invitation She's on her way back home Well behold my baby! I'd begged her to stay I kept on waiting here, for two years and a day But I didn't know that I, I'd get a knock on the door And when I couldn't close my eyes, I had to fall to the floor Hey hey, that's what I say now

We sailed at dusk from Spain, A kingdom's life to claim With the world in the rear view, I knew what I had to do The sea looks down, I am going To bring the crown wealth and fame This world is round, I will show you, To sail around in Thy name A month or more at sea, The grace of God with me We found an isle of the Indies soon to be my legacy The sea surrounds, I am sailing To sing the sounds of Thy name This world is round, I have shown you This world I found is my fame And I'm not deserving, no I'm not deserving, No I'm not deserving of you. I'm a sailor, not a saviour, not a martyr I'm not a conqueror, I'm just a sailor, And a sinner whose dream has run away from me The sail goes down, I am ailing The king, the crown slight my name This world is round, now forever This world I found is my shame But I'm not deserving, no I'm not deserving, No I'm not deserving, no I'm not deserving of you.

I woke up scared one weekday morning Bloody sunrise, sailor's warning Something sulfurous in the air If you believe in faiths of passion Afraid of falling out of fashion Why the sixes everywhere I see? Can it be, can I make it to the amnesty? But he follows me like indecision He's all I see on television Just let me be, I know who did it I know you're right, but I won't admit it Cuz I've been called a fool before. I met a man in robe and sandals He struck a favor to light my candle And offered me his kingdom's key Said you announce my kitchen table And I believe in Cain and Abel But I believe in everything I see, I can be, I can make it to your eternity But he follows me like indecision He's all I see on television Just let me be, I know who did it I know you're right, but I won't admit it Cuz I've been called a fool before. But I can't argue any more Lord I need you like I never had before He's haunting me, I'm falling under He wants his share like it's any wonder Come rescue me, I should have seen it I need you now, I didn't mean it You sang my name in so many verses Your agent came to kiss the curses I'm not the same, I'll not ignore it My heart's aflame and better for it And I'd been called a fool before.

I don't know just what to say Words don't mean much And I don't know just where I've been Where is the world I am living in? I'm going to clear my head out of the way And what's left will stay So meet me on the inside We both know the time's arrived We've got fortunes still to find And I don't want to see it end But we've got nothing left to spend Waiting here life's passing by So it hurts to say but I'm going away I have my dream and it leads this way And I know you, you've got your things to do I want the world to remember you I'm going to clear my head out of the way And what's left will stay I'm going to shine like gold shine like the day And my heart will start to play So meet me on the inside We both know the time's arrived We've got fortunes still to find And kiss me for the last time But just as long as I'm alive I'll be yours and you'll be mine She left alone when the summer came I packed a bag and I did the same But like the home that I'd left behind Her memory flooded, overflowed my mind I've been longing for your touch I never thought it'd hurt this much I just want you back again So meet me on the way home And I'll find out if I'm alone I just want you in the end

We've got to got to love one another We've got to got to live for each other Strange scene tonight, I'm neither here nor there But I feel all right, I sang into your ear I wish that I could ease your soul Fill you up and make you whole Give you more than you bargained for Feel the love, let's not fight the love Let's not spill the blood anymore Gunshots I hear when I am half asleep Lead me to fear we're in this way too deep Car horns like cursing kids A generation has hit the skids Living more than they bargained for Feel the love, let's not fight the love Let's not spill the blood anymore I've got the strangest feeling I can see the paint is peeling We've got nowhere left to run I wish that love would overcome Overtake me, overflow with love Feel the love, let's not fight the love Let's not spill the blood anymore

If I think of you tonight It'll only make things worse I'll feel that emptiness inside That comes when your heart hurts And when I think about your smile It tears a hole in me If I could only sleep a while Then I might find some peace And I guess in time I'll see That not everything comes down to you and me But when you laugh it all becomes so clear to me There's nothing I can do but wait for you so hopelessly What is wrong with me That I do this to myself You're happy without me You're in love with someone else What do you think of at night Do you have a sacred dream None of my thoughts are worthwhile I don't even know what they mean And I hope in time you'll see That maybe something might become of you and me There's so much I want to tell you, I want to say There's nothing I can do but wait for you for another day Standing in the rain, I look up at your window And all I feel is this numbing pain The ache from being alone And I know in time you'll see That maybe everything comes down to you and me There's so much I want to tell you, I want to say And I don't know if I can hold it for another day And I know in time you'll see How every word you say could mean so much to me I'm standing out here below your window in the cold With such a passion in my heart and you don't even know
