I’m sailing on that sentimental journey,
you’ll never know that all I have to do is dream.
My heart tells me I’m swinging on a star but
in the blue of evening things aren’t always what they seem.
Please hear my prayer, don’t treat me cruel, I beg of you.
You always hurt the one you love and then I’ll cry.
Just love me tender – that is all you need to do,
I’ve got my love to keep me warm and I’ll get by.
If it’s true that everybody’s somebody’s fool,
and some enchanted evening smoke gets in your eyes,
I will still sail on that sentimental journey
I can’t stop loving you when you’re my ticket to ride.
