Lyrics

Blue water
Sit and I wait
For the morning to come
Blue water
And I wait for the sound of my gypsy
Blue water

I’m sitting on a flight
Hidden out of sight
Blue water
Blue water

And I stare at the sea
And the sea smiles for me
And the sea is as moving as a lover

I can’t give up the night
I’m in high tide
I’d like to sail the sea
I’d like to take you on a slow ride

I won’t give up the night
High tides
I’d like to sail the sea
I’d like to take you on a slow ride
Slow ride
Slow ride

Blue water
I sit and I wait for the morning to come
Blue water
And I wait for the sound
Blue water

Sitting on a flight
Hidden out of sight
Blue water
And I wait for the sound
Wait for the sound

And I smile at the sea
And the sea smiles for me
And the sea is as moving as a lover

I can’t give up the night
I’m in hide tide
I’d like to sail the sea
I’d like to take you on a slow ride
A slow ride

I won’t give up the night
I’m in high tide
I’d like to be your friend
I’d love to love you till the end
Till the end

Blue water
I sit and I pray
For the morning to come
Blue water

And I wait
For the sound of my gypsy
Blue water

I’m sitting on a flight
Hidden out of sight
Blue water
Blue water

And I smile at the sea
And then the sea smiles for me
And the sea is as moving as a lover
A love

I can’t give up the night
I’m in high tide
I’d love to sail the sea
I’d love to take you on a slow ride

I can’t give up the night
I’m in high tide
I’d like to be your friend
I’d like to love you till the end

Blue water
I sit and I wait
For the morning to come
