lyrics

Lord well I’m a-higher than a mountain
So much higher than a ‘plane
You might think that I’m just sleepin'
But it feels like I’m flying once again

In the churchyard with the roses
I've got a gravestone for my bed
I’m not the Captain or the navigator
But I found a million stars above my head

I spread my wings for to take my flight
Across the sky into the deep dark night
When I reach the sun and find out old Icarus was right
Well I’ll try to fly again

In the north sea’s cold water
My feet barely touch the sand
A giant wave come crashing over my head
Well I lost the grip of your strong hand

When I try to stand up I’m in too deep
Try to swim the shoreline’s out of reach
I got chains around my ankles and concrete 'round my feet
But I’ll try to fly again

You might think that I’m preoccupied
Walking with myself along the dunes
It’ll soon be dawn and with the coming of the morning sun
The daylight illuminates my room

When I try to stand up I’m in too deep
Try to swim the shoreline’s out of reach
I got chains around my ankles and concrete ‘round my feet
But I’ll try to fly again

You might think that I’m preoccupied
Walking with myself along the dunes
It’ll soon be dawn and with the coming of the morning sun
The daylight illuminates my room

You might think that I’m preoccupied
Walking my dogs in Brigadoon
It’ll soon be dawn and with the coming of the morning sun
The daylight illuminates my room
