Richard Wright — Holiday lyrics

(are. Wright) 6: 12
It was meant to be a holiday
Building castles by the sea.
Another way to live for you and me
Time to pause, consider what we've done.
The wind is blowing, so come, let's take a holiday.
How was I to know quite so soon
That dreams can turn your life around, it seems
There is no single way to live our days
Between these lines, I know you see a man
Who's not quite sure who he is, or where he stands.
Sail on
Sail on, across the sea
Ride the waves, feel the breeze.
Sail on, there's no other way I'd rather be.
Destiny, reality, or just a dream
Raise the sails, the wind is free.
Every day I become more confused
Which way to go, how to choose.
Back at home, what holds me here?
Shut in, not moving, only half alive
Clouds hang heavy, they leave me cold
It doesn't have to be this way.
The wind is blowing, so come, let's take a holiday.
Sail on
Sail on, across the sea
Ride the waves, feel the breeze.
Sail on, there's no other way I'd rather be
