Away (Ron Hynes) video

So well I remember the morning that I sailed away,
And turning one last time I threw a kiss to her,
She smiled to me from the cold edge of the water.

I turned my face to the wind and the tears followed,
That night I dreamed that I lay beside her,
Clinging to her like a child to his mother.

And when I awoke the cold lay claim to my heart,
Knowing full well as I whispered her name,
I never would smile upon her sweet face again.

And well I remember the morning that I sailed away.
