I wander lonely as a cloud
I keep my head above the crowd
Ain't nobody else as big as me

But I must remember friends
What has to start just has to end
Everybody's got a destiny

And I know when the swallows flies
Yes, I know and the earth just dies
Then I'll be told what I am
The swallow and me

I'll look after number one
I'll forget the beggar's son
Everybody's got to stay alive

I'll keep walking amongst the clouds
I'll keep my head above the crowd
I'll watch them live, I'll watch them die

And I know when the swallows flies
Yes, I know and the earth just dies
Then I'll be told what I am
The swallow and me

Yes, I know when the swallows flies
Yes, I know, and the earth just dies
Yes, I know when the swallow flies
Yes, I know, and the earth just dies
