Stone by the river, got no wind in my sail
No revolutions in my soul
Hey, revelation's just a moment away
Soon I'm gonna be old, soon you're gonna be old
Remember love is not something you can keep
It just takes the wind to blow it away
You look so ugly as you lie there asleep
Boy you're pretty today, so pretty today

When I was born they poisoned my mind
They told me to fight but I'm not that kind
They said I was meek but I did not mind
It's a case of the weak leaving the blind

I see the stars have spelt your name in the sky
I wrote it too down here in the sand
When I first met you, you stirred nothing at all
See the cards in your hand, see the cards in your hand

And oh if I could fly
I said oh if I could fly
Don't you know that if I could fly
I'd take to the sky

I feel so special when I'm making you cry
But I regret the things I throw in your face, I do
This drug will kill you darling this is no lie
This dragon we chase, this dragon we chase

When I was born they poisoned my mind
They told me to fight but I'm not that kind
They said I was meek but I did not mind
It's a case of the weak fooling the blind

And oh if I could fly
I said oh if I could fly
Don't you know that if I could fly
I'd take to the sky

And oh if I could fly
I said oh if I could fly
Don't you know that if I could fly
I'd take to the sky, yes I would
