Beyond The Sea Lyrics Sung by Rod Stewart

(scroll down to listen to the song on video)

Somewhere beyond the sea
Somewhere waiting for me
My lover stands on golden sand
And watches the ships that go sailing.

Somewhere beyond the sea
Somewhere waiting for me
My lover stands on golden sand
And watches the ships that go sailing.

Somewhere beyond the sea
She’s there watching for me
If I could fly like birds on high
Fell straight to her arms I’d go sailing.

It’s far beyond the stars
It’s near beyond the moon
I know beyond a doubt
My heart will leave me there soon, yeah.

I know beyond a doubt
My heart will leave me there soon, yeah.

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 sailing
And never again I’ll go sailing
My heart will leave me
Beyond the sea …

I know beyond a doubt
My heart will leave 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 sailing
And never again I’ll go sailing

 Some Interesting Facts About Beyond the Sea Lyrics and Song Versions

Beyond the Sea” is a 1946 contemporary pop romantic love song by Charles Trenet, with music taken from his song “La Mer” and lyrics by Jack Lawrence.

Trenet had composed “La Mer” (which means “the Sea”) with French lyrics completely different and unrelated to the English-language version that Lawrence later wrote. Trenet’s French version was a homage and ode to the changing moods of the sea, while Lawrence, by just adding one word “Beyond” to the title, gave him the start whereby he made the song into one of a dear lover mourning for a lost love, boyfriend/girlfriend, or beloved sweetheart.

It has been recorded by many artists, but Bobby Darin’s version released in 1959 is the best known by many, reaching no. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, no. 15 on the US R&B Chart, and no. 8 in the UK Singles Chart.

Prior to Bobby Darin, two recordings reached the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100. Benny Goodman’s version charted in 1948, and was featured in the Cary Grant/Diana Lynn romantic comedy Every Girl Should Be Married. Roger Williams’ recording reached no. 37 in 1955.

Deana Martin recorded Beyond the Sea in 2013. The song was released on her album, Destination Moon, in 2013 by Big Fish Records.

American R&B singer George Benson recorded a R&B version of the song under the title “Beyond The Sea (La Mer).” It was released on Warner Bros.. This version entered the UK Singles Chart on 20 April 1985. It reached a peak position of no. 60 and remained on the chart for three weeks

Bobby Darin’s recording has been used in films, TV shows, and video games, including Apollo 13, Austin Powers in Goldmember, Diner, Goodfellas, Black Rain, The X-Files, Lost, The Adventures of Ford Fairlane, Finding Nemo, and BioShock.

Kevin Spacey sang the song in the movie Beyond the Sea, a biopic about Bobby Darin, in a “fantasy” sequence leading up to his marriage to Sandra Dee.
