Sail away with me to where all there is blue
Where the ocean meets the sky with no land inbetween
We'll watch the sun, and ask it to set
because kisses taste better in the dark

We'll take a boat until the sea is solid
Where the waves are too tired to roar
and we'll walk hand in hand on the surface
Our toes glad to be barefoot at last

The moon dancing past our heads
Spinning so slowly, but carefully
Never off tempo with the music of the gods
because it knows the chords by heart

Our breathing will slow with the ocean's calm
Until we wont be breathing at all
Yet our lungs will feel so full of air
breathing never was more than a strain

Our eyes will become tired, and then close
As we've memorized the blue around us
and we'll speak through our touch
until we understand without communication

Slowly we'll join until we are one
and we wont have any need for our bodies
and we'll leave the world behind at last
and join the space inbetween it all
