'Keep On Sailin..'

I saw a ship a sailin'
A sailin' on the sea..
Oh, I swear it had my name
Painted on for me..


Yes, I saw a ship a sailin'
A sailin' on the sea, yeah
And oh, it was laden
With pictures of my future..


Temptation
To swim..
Temptation
To climb on board


Should I go
Or should I stay?
Should I know
What the future holds?


Should I be shown
Which route to take?
What mistakes
I shouldn't make..?


But there, I was standing
Didn't know what to do
My heart was fighting
With my mind, yeah..


Just wanted to close my eyes
Just wanted to stop..feeling
Just wanted some peace of mind
I was too confused, yeah


But then I saw
My own reflection...
Boy, I was such a state
I saw my emotion..


Closed my eyes
I saw that ship a sailin'
Then I realised
It was a creation..


Then I remembered
The person I used to be
Yes I remembered
The person I used to be


Keep on sailin', yeah!


I'm going back to the life I have
Keep on sailin'
I'm going back to reality
Keep on sailin'
I'm gonna get through
Keep on sailin'
I know I'll be happy
Keep on sailin'
No, don't need to know
Keep on sailin'
Which way to go
Keep on sailin'
Yesterdays gone
Keep on sailin'
Tomorrow hasn't even begun
Keep on sailin''


I'm gonna live
For the now
Gonna live like there's
No tomorrow


See, I'm a good person, yeah
Filled with goodness inside
So no matter how hard you try to put me down
I'll still have my pride! !


I've got people who love me
People who need me, yeah!


And I will keep givin'
Til the day I die
So go go go go go go go go on
Keep on sailin'!


I'm going back to the life I have
Back to reality
I'm gonna get through
I know I'll be happy
No, don't need to know
Which way to go
Yesterdays gone
Tomorrow hasn't even begun!


I'm gonna live
For the now
Gonna live like there's
No tomorrow


No matter how hard you try to put me down
I'll still have my pride! !


Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah yeah yeah


A good person, yeah
Filled with goodness inside
So no matter how hard you try
I'll still have my pride! !


Just keep on sailin' by
I don't need to run away
I know who I am
And I'm here to stay


I've got people who love me
People who need me, yeah!


And I will keep givin'
Til the day I die
So go go go go go go go go on
Keep on sailin', yeah!

I'm going back to the life I have
Keep on sailin'
I'm going back to reality
Keep on sailin'
I'm gonna get through
Keep on sailin'
I know I'll be happy
Keep on sailin'
No, don't need to know
Keep on sailin'
Which way to go
Keep on sailin'
Yesterdays gone
Keep on sailin'
Tomorrow hasn't even begun
Keep on sailin''



Keep on sailin'
Keep on sailin'
Keep on sailin'......................
