Connie Talbot - Sailing Safe Lyrics




Heartbreaking all around,
We speak but there’s no sound.
Black stains upon our cheeks,
Our tears come falling down.
Cry a river over you,
And drown in its despair.
I know I didn’t know you,
But I know it isn’t fair.

Cause we lost an angel,
We lost an angel on earth as well as heaven.
We lost an angel.

And with this grief won’t you take our prayers with you, please
Now you have wings, you can teach the angels how to sing.
And with our tears won’t you build an ocean back here.
Sailing safe...

You heal the broken hearts with your own melody,
Taught us that it’s okay to not follow society.
This world never deserved you so I say goodbye tonight.
Good night, God bless you, rest in paradise.

And with this grief won’t you take our prayers with you, please
Now you have wings, you can teach the angels how to sing.
And with our tears won’t you build an ocean back here.
Sailing safe...

And with this grief won’t you take our prayers with you, please
Now you have wings, you can teach the angels how to sing.
And with our tears won’t you build an ocean back here.
Sailing safe...

  20. Joe Willis

  22. Jan Jensen music

    Still this day this song touches me so much. Masterpiece by Connie Talbot, which really shows her potential.
    This song is just perfection..And Connie wrote it in just one evening.
    Christina was such a great singer and person😭

    I know I didn’t know you,
    But I know it isn’t fair.

    Cause we lost an angel,
    We lost an angel on earth as well as heaven.
    We lost an angel.

    And with this grief won’t you take our prayers with you, please

  25. Bruna Ellwanger

    When Christina was taken away from the world, I was in total shock. For days I felt like having lost someone from my own family. Even today I sometimes listen to her music and for some moments I forget she’s not around anymore. How come could some terrible thing get to her?
    That is how much she was loved. And thank you, Connie, for writing this song, which is so beautiful as the person she was.

  26. Rainier Esguerra

    An angel's tribute to another angel that went up ahead. 😢

  27. Lindsey Humble

    that was beautiful

  28. Fabio Tito Montefinale

    Excelente mi dulce Connie <3 <3 <3 Hermosa canción :) :)
    Christina :( :(

  29. Sarah

    Even after all this time has gone by, there is not a second that goes by I haven't thought of this sweet girl and her family. I remember having the honor of sending her mom a handmade journal. This was truly a beautiful song, and I was definitely crying

    das92

    did you ever recieve anything back

  30. Brian Bennett

    This was the most beautiful tribute. I'm shedding tears as I'm hanging on to every word in this song... no lyrics fit anymore perfect than these. This world lost a lot when we lost Christina.

    Beautiful!!! Thank you!!!

  33. Potter. Kier

    😢😢

  34. Joash Law

    This is probably the world's best song tribute to Christina. It's so meaningful and it just connects one line after another. Great job Connie

    Jan Jensen music

    joash law The lyrics are absolutely heartbreaking..So are the melody. A masterpiece in my view.

  35. Jonathan Guillén

    I can't help it... Everytime I hear to this song I end up crying. Thanks for this little piece of miracle, Connie. It can't be more perfect.

  37. Belle Maier Riniker

    Thanks for your words I don't know what to say....

  38. Jan Jensen music

    Going back to hear this.
    Can`t praise you enough for this song written in a day, Connie.
    It is just one of the best songs ever written. Christina would be so proud.

  39. Claudia Porter Music

    Christina Grimmie would have loved this song, you should be so proud of yourself to have written such a beautiful song! The lyrics and the melody are so powerful and stunning.

  40. Jennifer Owens-Case

    fourteen months on... I hope you're happy at home Christina, with the angels <3

  41. Felicity videos

    5.8.2017 Still here 💙 Love u Christina for always 💙

  42. david chabanne

    Thank you for her ... French fan of christina and you

  43. andreas m

    Does anyone else think that this song is very similar to "Lost Love", one of her other songs?

    Jan Jensen music

    andreas m In a way. Same mood, but still very different. I also like lost love a lot.

    Alasdair Boyd

    No bad thing, a lot of song writers have a similar sound through their music - for example The Bee Gees - even if they are not singing it themselves you can tell it was a Bee Gees song

  44. axeldemiseblade

    R.I.P Christina Grimmie and Chester Bennington. This is a beautiful song.

  45. Kira Hopkins

    I was literally in tears it was amazing.

  46. les cox

    I think almost all of you are missing the most important thing for the future, Christina was cruelly taken from us and her superb voice, career and personality stolen, but that I am afraid is fact and we cannot change it. What we can change is to make the world realise that in this girl Connie, we have a singer/songwriter with a soul and a heart so wonderful that she can express that loss so beautifully, remember Connie is only 15 (at the time of this recording). Christina is gone but must not be forgotten, Connie is the future and must not be ignored.

    intermenater

    I was just listening to the three original song demos she's uploaded to Twitter since the first of July. Her lyrics are far more insightful that most of today's "fluff," no matter what the writer's age. She has a knack for transmuting perspectives and emotions of life to word and music.

    les cox

    Intermenater you are so right. Connie is far more than just another beautiful singer/songwriter, she has a heart and soul that is years ahead of herself and a decades ahead of the current industry. This girl is unequalled in the UK and maybe further afield.. She is simply pure class.

    Jan Jensen music

    les cox I trully believe that Connies dedication for music and singing since she was very little has made her one of the most creative and deep musicians for the future.
    I have never doubted her.
    Her lyrics are very very good, her melodies are brilliant, she sings fantastic, plays piano really well now and guitar is not bad either.
    On top of that she is not looking bad is she? And she has the most humble and down to earth personality.
    What is not to like?

    Prodip Kumar Saha

    U are right. We remember Christina and appreciate connie. \|/

  47. xUnimportant x3

    Damn makes me cry
    You're a huge star :(
    Like christina.

  48. Hope Kanenwisher

    it is so sad that she is dead..... christina was an amazing person and deserved the world.. she wouldve loved this song

  49. jin hur

  64. Emzo

    Beautiul

  65. Anh'el

    It's a really beautiful song. But there is an ad on your video. Please remove it quickly. There is no honor to make money on someone's death.

    gbnz53

    I've watched this beautiful video a number of times and there has never been an advertisement shown. I believe that the You Tube Ad's depend on what country you are watching the video in.

    Ronni Andersson

    >Anh 3DEx: this is not connie putting the ad on the video you freaking idiot. IT's money hungry shiet companies like Youtube. Connie is 10 times more decent human than anyone posting here.. So that you would even think she would do such BS is beyond this world... Begon scum!

  66. Analyn Whyte

    😢😭😥😿💧💦💔☔

  67. josé fernández

    That was an amazing song!!! It's already been about 6 months but jeez it still feels like 6 days. I'm just very happy to know that many, many, countless people loved Christina, and so there are at least that many good people left in this world. Christina is watching over all of us and still pushing us to be our best.

  88. ThermalGhost

    in death and Destruction is when the world truly shows their respect. there is more honor in death than in life. she was a good person. lets not let her be forgotten. she would still go to that concert that night as long as she knew she was going to touch somones life.

  89. LexieIsLame

    nearly 4 months... still can't believe it....

  90. Kev Ryan
