Opening words?
You?re gonna last forever
There?s no way you will fade
All this love around you
And the difference you have made

Cry a little now and then
Raise a glass and smile
Heaven knows you?re not alone
Be happy for a while
Sing a song that cheers them up
And wipe away their tears
You don?t have to try ? it?s the thing you?ve done for years

Sail away and wave from far
Sail away, you?re who you are

Sail, sail, sail, sail away
Sail, sail, sail, sail away

Remember all the little things
That made you laugh out loud
Remember all the people met
Who stood out from the crowd
Remember saying sober things
As if you knew it all
Remember breaking all you rules
When back was ?gainst the wall


Don?t forget to think of me
When light begins to fail
Don?t forget to memorise
My number for a gale
But most of all, I love you
And the thing that hurts me most
Is everyday from here on in
I?m living with a ghost
