Somewhere Beyond the Sea -- Bobby Darin (1959)

"Throughout the 1960s, he became more politically active and worked on Robert Kennedy's Democratic presidential campaign. He was present on the night of June 4/5, 1968, at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles at the time of Kennedy's assassination. The same year, he discovered that he had been brought up by his grandparents, not his parents, and that the girl he thought was his sister was actually his mother. These events deeply affected Darin and sent him into a long period of seclusion." (Wikipedia)





Somewhere beyond the sea
Somewhere waitin' for me
My lover stands on golden sands
And watches the ships that go sailin'
 
Somewhere beyond the sea
She's there watchin' for me
If I could fly like birds on high
Then straight to her arms I'd go sailin'
 
It's far beyond the stars
It's near beyond the moon
I know beyond a doubt
My heart will lead me there soon
 
We'll meet beyond the shore
We'll kiss just as before
Happy we'll be beyond the sea
And never again I'll go sailin'
 
I know beyond a doubt
My heart will lead me there soon
We'll meet, I know we'll meet, beyond the shore
We'll kiss just as before

Happy we'll be beyond the sea
And never again I'll go sailin'
No more sailin', so long sailin'
Bye, bye sailin'

 Move on out, captain

Better than the Frank Sinatra version? Well, Scorsese thought so...
