Like a dream on the ocean
Always drifting away
And I can't catch up
She just skips away, on the tide
Sometimes a great notion
Can lead you astray
So weak to devotion
So strong to desire

Baby, baby, baby won't you let me ride
Take me off on your sail boat ride
Come on now angels, are on your side
But she slips away, oh, and never stays

Like mercury gliding
A silver teardrop that falls
And I will never hold her
Through my fingers she's gone

At the foot of the mountain
Such a long way to climb
How will I ever get up there,
Though I know I must try

Baby, baby, baby won't you let me ride
Take me off on your sail boat ride
Come on now angels, are on your side
But she slips away, oh, and never stays

Like a dream on the ocean
Always drifting away
And I can't catch up
She just skips away, on the tide

She just slips away, on the tide
Skips away, as she glides
