Moulin Rouge – One Day I'll Fly Away lyrics

I follow the night
Can't stand the light
When will I begin
To live again?

One day I'll fly away
Leave all this to yesterday
What more could your love do for me?
When will love be through with me?
Why live life from dream to dream....
And dread the day
When dreaming ends?

One day I'll fly away
Leave all this to yesterday
Why live life from dream to dream?
And dread the day
when dreaming ends

One day I'll fly away
Fly, fly

    She sings about living life as a prostitute where she makes love for money and not because she loves her partner in bed. Rather than continue this loveless lifestyle, she wishes to leave it all behind so she can find one she truly loves far away from where she now is, which is part of her dream. She'll fly away from the life of a prostitute and have a meaningful relationship with a certain someone far away from her life as a prostitute. Her fear is that she'll be all used up before she'll ever fulfill her dream and be rejected by her prospective dreamboat and the house with the white picket fence and a couple of kids. But she can still dream about it even though it doesn't seem real and tell herself that she may be able to have it all.
