White Town – Once I Flew lyrics

Once I flew
And it made my fingertips sing
I was more like a God than a king
Now I can't believe that was true

Once I flew
Though you don't believe me I know
You look where I'm standing now
You can't believe I left the ground.

Look up to the bright blue sky
Can't you feel life passing by
If you could wouldn't you
Try to soar over everything?
All the pain this world can bring
Once I flew now I've lost my wings
Now I'm down here with you
Now I'm down here with you

Once I flew
And the angels were my friends
They would grant me every whim
Now I can't believe that was true
Once I flew
Though it's easy to forget
I don't seem to have managed yet.

And I don't think I ever will

Look up to the bright blue sky
Can't you feel the life passing by?
If you could wouldn't you
Try to soar over everything?
All the pain this world can bring
Once I flew now I've lost my wings
Now I'm down here with you
Now I'm down here with you.

And in my dreams I am happy again
You're in my arms and we're flying
Again, flying away.
