Carpenters Sailing On The Tide Lyrics

Last updated:

Here I am feeling confined

Neon lights are making me blind

I need time out in the sunshine

The city and me just don't agree

On who I should be

Maybe I should get away

Take myself a holiday



No more calls begging my time

No more walls for me to climb

I can't wait to feel the sunshine

Leaving at down

After I'm gone life go on

Someone's gonna take my place

Runnin'n in the human race



(*) Sailing on the tide in the morning

Now I love that salty air

Sailing to the wide horizon

Let the fresh winds

Guide us there

Maybe if you feel like it, too

You might like to make the run

Sailing over the ocean

To my beautiful island in the sun



Over there people are slow

Low key life is all that they know

Lying around high on the sunshine

Lazy lagoons warm afternoons

Tropical moons

Sleepy beaches everywhere

Anyone is welcome there



Make no plans play it by ear

Could be days maybe a year

I'm gonna be free in the sunshine

Takin' my time tryin' to find

Some peace of mind

Nothin's gonna hurry me

Nothin's gonna worry me



Repeat (*)



Sailing on the wide horizon

Let the fresh winds

Guide us there

Maybe if you feel like it, too

You might like to make the run

Sailing over the ocean

To my beatiful island in the sun
