A Sweet Wind

Thought you’d wait   a little longer
Thought you said   I’m the only one
I saw gold   there on your finger
Not mine   those years are done
Didn’t seem   you’d fall from love
Didn’t seem   there’d be another
Wouldn’t think that I’m easy to spare
Wouldn’t think that you’d got a lover

Chorus
Sailing a sweet wind

on a following sea
Past the islands where we used to live
Sails all set for something new
A sweet wind takes me, takes me away from you

Days and nights   take a toll
While you wait   so all alone
Never thought   you’d marry fast
Maybe thought   you’d come back home
Far away   a distant land
Far away   a quiet ocean
Leaving me here with all this pain
Leaving me here with old emotions

Bridge
How did you know that it couldn’t be so
That you wanted to be so free
Only one question that I ask you now
Did you tell her…all about me?       ………………. SOLO

A sweet wind   now lets me go
Saves me from   deepest sorrow
Full sails and   an innocent heart
Heading for   the sun tomorrow
Sailing free   I feel alright
Sailing for   love that’s true
Well, I could have had me any one
Well, all I wanted was just you

Chorus
Sailing a sweet wind

on a following sea
Past the islands where we used to live
Sails all set for something new
A sweet wind takes me, takes me away from you
