    waiting at the water's edge
    watching all the ships
    as they are heading for the harbour wall,
    i was just a boy,
    i was just a boy,
    dreaming of the wide world,
    dreaming of the wide world;

    watching as they disappear,
    reading out the names
    of all the places i have never been,
    looking out to sea,
    staring out to sea,
    dreaming of a wide world,
    dreaming of the wide world,

    i wish i was sailing away,
    sailing away,
    sailing away, with you tonight,
    with you tonight;

    walking down another street,
    underneath the red lights,
    i am watching where the shadows fall,
    looking at the girls,
    listening to the girls,
    dreaming of a new world,
    dreaming of that new world,

    i wish i was sailing away,
    sailing away,
    sailing away, in your arms tonight,
    in your arms tonight;

    i wish i was sailing away,
    sailing away,
    sailing away, with you now,
    with you now...

  • travis'in 2007 çıkışlı albümü the boy with no name'in sonunda yer alan şirin mi şirin bonus track. sözleri de şu şekilde:

    what are we gonna do,
    when you've stopped crying?
    what ever you're going through
    it's not worth dying.

    chasing away the blues,
    i know you're trying.
    and nobody wants to lose,
    i don't know why.

    cause i live by the river,
    live by the river and
    i'll die by the river
    i'm sailing, away, today.

    what are you gonna say
    when they stop laughing?
    you're giving it all away
    when you've got nothing.

    how many times a day
    you feel like walking?
    taking a holiday from
    all the shy-y-y...

    but i live by the river,
    live by the river and
    i'll die by the river
    i'm sailing, away, today.

    cause i live by the river,
    live by the river and
    i'll die by the river
    i'm sailing, away, today.

    and you've got to grab
    the bull by the horns my friend
    it's the only way to go.

    and when the story's told
    we can go home.

    so what are we gonna do,
    when you've stopped crying?
    what ever you're going through
    it's not worth dying.

    keeping away the blues
    you know i'm trying.
    what've we got to lose,
    and testify-y-y...

    cause i live by the river,
    live by the river and
    i'll die by the river
    i'm sailing, away,
    i'm sailing, away,
    i'm sailing, away, today.
  • yüksek rahatlatma potansiyeline sahip, her dinlendiğinde serinlik hissi yaşatan, şarkının sonuna doğru güzel bir saksafon solosu içeren; ancak kitleler tarafından pek bilinmeyen chris de burgh şarkısı...
  • bir genç adamın büyümesini, ufkunun açılmasını çok güzel anlatabilen chris de burgh şarkısı, benim için kendisinin en başarılı şarkısıdır.
  • insana dinlerken zihninde ufuklara yelken açtıran çok güzel bir chris de burgh şarkısı.
  • uzaklara özlemi depreştiren chris de burgh şarkısı. kavır mavır yapıldı mı bilmiyorum ama orijinalinin üzerine yeni bir şey konamayacak şarkılardan biridir. dinlemek için illa bir yelkenlide olmak da gerekmez, arabada bir ovanın ortasında da güzel gider, akar yolda.
  • neden chris de burgh sevdigimi anlatiyor bu meret. bu adam beni yollara surecek bi gün bu sarkilari yuzunden. insani tek basina yolculuga cikartarak kendini yeniden bulmayi hedefleyen bence yüzyilin faylazofu.
    (ulan sorsan bir konserine gitmedim, ne bu övgü anlamadim neyse, seviyom seni kiriz)
