  • These tears I've cried
    I've cried 1,000 oceans
    and if it seems
    I'm floating in the darkness
    Well, I can't believe that I would keep
    keep you from flying
    And I would cry 1,000 more
    If that's what it takes
    to sail you home sail you home
    Sail you home, sail you home

    I'm aware what the rules are
    But you know that I will run
    You know that I will follow you
    Over Silbury Hill through the solar field
    You know that I will follow you
    And if I find you, will you still remember
    Playing at trains
    Or does this little blue ball just fade away
    Over Silbury Hill through the solar field
    You know that I will follow you
    I'm aware what the rules are
    But you know that I will run
    You know that I will follow you

    These tears I've cried
    I've cried 1,000 oceans
    And if it seems I'm floating in the darkness
    Well, I can't believe that I would keep
    Keep you from flying
    So I will cry 1,000 more
    If that's what it takes to sail you home
    Sail you home, sail you home, sail you home Writer/s: TORI ELLEN AMOS
