Sailing Into The Future

words and music by Paige Powell      ©2007 Paige E. Powell

1. I’m sailing into the future, with winds of change into my sails

The media’s different from yesterday, and so is the salty tale

I’d ask you to travel with me, but I know that your answer is, “No”

For the only way that you could come with me

You’d have to really let go

 

Bridge 1:  You’d have to let sanity leave your grasp;

Leave the earth and what has gone before.

But you hold onto your boundaries
And you’re afraid to open the door

 

2. Even though I’m talking bravely, I know that I will say the same

When my own child boards a silver ship and leaves in a golden flame.

I’ll be stuck for an answer.  I won’t understand the new seas—

Bigger waves, with stars in the swell,

And they won’t have an ocean breeze

 

Bridge 2: We’d have to let sanity leave our grasp;

Leave the earth and what has gone before.

But we hold onto our boundaries
And we’re afraid to open the door

 

3. I’m sailing into the future, with winds of change into my sails.

The media’s different from yesterday, and so is the salty tale

We cannot travel lightly.  Our answer is usually, “No”

For the only way that we can leave today

We’ll have to really let go.
