Land   Verenigd Koninkrijk

Britse dance-act bestaande uit zangeres Diane Charlemagne (1964-2015), Simon Bentall, Peter Samson, Johnny Jay, Mark Hadfield en Neil Claxton. In 1993 werd hun eerste single The Key:The Secret in Nederland nummer 1-hit die 13 weken in de Top 40 stond.


Daarna bracht de groep nog een aantal nummers uit, waaronder Feels Like Heaven en High On A Happy Vibe, maar die kwamen niet in de buurt van het debuut.

In 1996 kwam Urban Cookie Collective in opspraak toen de groep Champagne Supernova van Oasis wilde coveren, maar Noel Gallagher weigerde toestemming te geven.

In 2015 overleed zangeres Diane Charlemagne. Sindsdien treedt de groep op met Danielle Barnett.

Songtekst

(Yeah hey hey, yeah hey hey)
(Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh)

(We gotta sail away) now as we leave this world
(We gotta sail away) just you and me, you and me

So I'm moving on in my own direction baby
You know I can't stay here any longer
I found out through the grapevine
There is a place far away, far away
I'm gonna start my journey early in the morning
Before the sun rises and the moon is still aglow
I'm gonna take a trip, I'm gonna sail away
I'll open my mind, see what I find before a brand new day, yeah, yeah

(We gotta sail away) now as we leave this world
(We gotta sail away) just you and me baby
(We gotta sail away) now as we leave this world
(We gotta sail away) just you and me, you and me baby

Now as I leave this world I look back and wonder
Shall I remember all the things that I have seen
Now people to the left of me, people to the right
See me on the mountain top in ways of your bright white light
But when I reach my destination I will pray
That those I left behind me will follow me one day
You take what you can to avoid frustration
That's why I'm coming to the rainbow nation

(We gotta sail away) now as we leave this world
(We gotta sail away) just you and me baby
(We gotta sail away) now as we leave this world
(We gotta sail away) just you and me, you and me (baby)
(We gotta sail away, oh) now as we leave this world (oh)
(We gotta sail away) just you and me baby (you and me)
(We gotta sail away) now as we leave this world
(We gotta sail away) just you and me, you and me

Now as I climb to the mountain top
Follow me (yeah hey hey), follow me (yeah hey hey)
Follow me, follow me, follow me (oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh)

(We gotta sail away)
(We gotta sail away) just you and me baby
(We gotta sail away) now as we leave this world
(We gotta sail away) just you and me, you and me (baby)
(We gotta sail away, oh) now as we leave this world (oh)
(We gotta sail away) just you and me baby (you and me)
(We gotta sail away) now as we leave this world
(We gotta sail away) just you and me, you and me baby
(We gotta sail away) gotta gotta baby
(We gotta sail away) get away now baby yeah
(We gotta sail away) we gotta sail away
(We gotta sail away) you and me now baby
(We gotta sail away) we gotta sail away, we gotta sail away
(We gotta sail away)
