I am a child
I am a sanctuary
Wild at my mother's knee
Freedom has a piece of me
Every night I run away
Loose the nooses and drift astray
Chasing dreams into outer space
Trying to face
The day
Living life
Against the law
Forcing us all to endure
Sneaking home to close the door
Every night we run away
Loose the nooses and drift astray
Chasing dreams into outer space
Trying to face
The day
Every night we do our best to lose it
Skinning up and chasing better days
Getting up and moving to the music
O dance my darling lady fair
My darling mayflower
Show me just how much you dare
Forget our daytime labour
We're in the wind
You feel us in the breeze
Teaching leaves
To grow the trees
Smoothing
Daytime memories
And every night we run away
Loose the nooses and drift astray
Chasing dreams into outer space
Trying to face
The day
