TAKE ME AWAY

He was famous

If only in his mind.

And the world would find him

In its own sweet time.

So, patiently he waited for that day…

For his ship to come,

And take him far away…

She was out of school,

And looking for her prince.

She would find him soon,

Of this, she was convinced.

And ride away with him

On that big white horse.

Making all their dreams come true

They would, of course.

Take me away…

Down to the sea.

Take me away,

Just you and me.

Take me away with you,

And we’ll find our pot of gold.

Take me away,

It’s how fairy tales are told…

He was coming home

From working all night long.

Lost in a daydream,

Where did it all go wrong?

Nothing in his life now gave him hope.

Lost and all alone…

At the end of his rope.

She had her baby,

No husband was around.

And though she pleaded

He and up let her down.

The dreams she had

Just shattered then and there.

A precious baby in her arms…

God, why didn’t he care?

Take me away…

Down to the sea.

Take me away,

Just you and me.

Take me away with you,

And we’ll find our pot of gold.

Take me away,

It’s how fairy tales are told…

He was famous

If only in his mind…

She was out of school

And looking for her prince…

Take me away…

Down to the sea.

Take me away,

Just you and me.

Take me away with you,

And we’ll find our pot of gold.

Take me away,

It’s how fairy tales are told…
