SAILING ON THE TIDE (John Bettis / Tony Peluso) As released by the Carpenters < Voice Of The Heart > November 1983 Here I am feeling confined Neon lights are making me blind I need time out in the sunshine. The city and me just don't agree On who I should be Maybe I should get away Take myself a holiday. No more calls begging my time No more walls for me to climb I can't wait to feel the sunshine. Leaving at dawn After I'm gone life will go on Someone's gotta take my place Runnin' in the human race. Sailing on the tide in the morning Now I love that salty air Sailing through the wide horizon Let the fresh winds guide us there. Maybe if you feel like it too You might like to make the run Over the ocean To my beautiful island in the sun. (bridge) Over there people are slow Low key life is all that they know Lying around high on the sunshine. Lazy lagoons, warm afternoons Tropical moons Sleepy beaches everywhere Anyone is welcome there. Make no plans, play it by ear Could be days or maybe a year I'm gonna be free in the sunshine. Takin' my time, tryin' to find Time to unwind Nothin's gonna hurry me Nothin's gonna worry me. Sailing on the tide in the morning Now I love that salty air Sailing through the wide horizon Let the fresh winds guide us there. Maybe if you feel like it, too You might like to make the run Over the ocean To my beautiful island in the sun. Sailing to the wide horizon Let the fresh winds guide us there Maybe if you feel like it too You might like to make the run Sailing over the ocean To my beautiful island in the sun. (Bridge to end) NOTES: The Carpenters were a talented brother/sister singer/songwriting duo hailing from Los Angeles CA USA. As of 2013, they had sold more than 100 million units (source BBC). Their distinctive soft rock sound provided contrast to the loud and raucous sounds of the day. As well as singing, Karen was accomplished at drums and brother Richard at piano. Sadly, the duo's career ended prematurely with the death of Karen Carpenter in 1983. She was 32 years old. The Grammy Hall Of Fame recognized the Carpenters as providing music of 'lasting qualitative or history significance' (older than 25 years) by honouring them with their prestigious award. This album < Voice Of The Heart > , was compiled by her brother Richard and posthumously released. It contained previously unreleased tracks and this song was one of them. This song was also released as the 'B' side of a A&M 45 rpm single in 1984. The 'A' side was < YOUR BABY DOESN'T LOVE YOU ANYMORE> . (Transcribed by David Story - February 2014)
