Original Song – “Sail Away”

Sail Away is a song about charting our own course through life by using the examples of sailing, driving and walking – leaving our cares behind, following our dreams and seeking happiness in the simple things in life.  Happiness is and always has been a choice that we make in our lives, and part of the equation of happiness comes down to following our hopes and dreams.  We often find that our dreams are not found in the distant realms of the stars and the universe, or in some faraway place on the other side of the world, but in the simple pleasures of life right in our own backyard… “Some day we’ll understand, The dreams we’ve been searching for, Were really nothing more, Than holding hands, Walkin’ with toes in the sand…”

I recorded my original song “Sail Away” in two takes as demos on Set 10 in 1997, and it speaks to living our dreams, “Come let’s sail away, Set our sails today, We’ll follow the stars, No matter how far…” Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

Walkin’ with toes in the sand

And watchin’ all the stars

Holdin’ you in my arms

We share our love wherever we go
