Lyrics
There's a man who's living all alone,
doesn't like to talk with anyone.
He's the man on the boat,
he's always wearing a coat.

You can meet him very late at night,
strolling on the quay just late at night.
He never smiles at you,
he's never getting through.

But,
there's a story in his eyes.
You can see that something's there,
just a memory of times,
when the heartbeat was still there,
for her.

Sail,
sail away behind your cloud,
with the sea wind singing loud,
telling stories that you know,
full of "no" and "letting go".
Sail your boat away from here,
sail away don't count the years,
go on.

And there's nothing you can do for him,
looking at his face you'll see a grin,
He's the man on the boat,
he's always wearing a coat.

But,
there's a story in his eyes.
You can see that something's there,
just a memory of times,
when the heartbeat was still there,
for her.

Sail,
sail away behind your cloud,
with the sea wind singing loud,
telling stories that you know,
full of "no" and "letting go".
Sail your boat away from here,
sail away don't count the years,
go on.
