TUNE Georgia Lewis & Friends - Sail Away
Sail Away is an original composition, with a new arrangement for the trio.
Written in 2012, when I had just graduated university. My friends and I took an adventurous trip, with no insurance and £5 fuel from The Brighton Mariner on a boat they had recently bought. Finishing my degree left me with a fear of what to do next. Together this sparked the idea for the song about taking a chance and sailing away.
It tells the story of a girl who's in love with a boy who doesn't know what he wants in life. She loves him but realises he feels lost and she's concerned. The final line "so sail away with me" refers to her trusting and taking the chance to be patient and see what will happen. The chorus re-iterates her frustration and yet her ability to extend the invitation to him to sail away with her.
"Oh the west wind blows, you don't know what he's waiting for,
Oh, his curse is never going to be his cure,
So sail away with me."
