Lyrics

Open up your heart
If you want to set me free
Full of love, your love.
Sailing on a winedark open sea.
Sailing on a winedark open sea.

Lighten up, my heart
Leave it to the evening breeze.
Give me love, your love.
Sailing on a winedark open sea.
Sailing on a winedark open sea.

Oh my, I feel love for you
Spreading through my body,
I remember how
We can be so loving.
I feel love for you now.
I feel love for you right now.

Loosen up, my heart.
Let me have some time to be
With a love, my love.?
Sailing on a winedark open sea.
Sailing on a winedark open sea.

Oh my, I feel love for you
Spreading through my body,
I remember how
We can be so loving.
I feel love for you now.
I feel love for you right now.

Sailing on a winedark open sea.
Sailing on a winedark open sea.

Oh, I feel love for you now.
I feel love for you right now.
I feel love for you now.
Baby I feel love for you right now.

We're sailing on a winedark open sea.
Sailing on a winedark open sea.
