Sail On

i once loved a city
i once had a home
now i'm a sailor
sailing alone

i once had a kingdom
a princess, a queen
i watched them both slip away
like a sweet dream

sail on sweet dreams
sail on sweet dreams

i looked in the fire
i turned in the wind
i came to a soldier
asked where he'd been

but with each new hour
as silent as he
my dreams blowing further
and further from me

sail on sweet dreams
sail on sweet dreams

mind the waves, mind the rocks
don't look back, don't look back

but i once heard a brass band
march by my home
now i'm an old man marching alone

as the princess and queen
sail away from my song
til my eyes finally close
and i'm sailing along

sail on sweet dreams
sail on sweet dreams
