Sail Away Whispering Night • Sail away, whispering night • Once you’ve cried my sea of truth • Sail away, embrace the waves • Where my ship-wreck sinks • And my passion rests. • • Sail away, caress the sky, • With your velvety touch • Seduce the tide • Quiet the spirit, whisper your blessings • Over my sleepy eyes. • • Sail away, sweet black night • Echoing my longing lullaby… • Sail away with marine soft breeze • Gently weeping, silently sleeping • Until my soul awakes.
