These Wings will fly

Listen on Soundcloud : Here


On the back streets of Dunedin on a cold, cold winter’s night.

The train tracks they are leading to a place way out of sight

I miss my baby
I miss him good

I don’t say maybe

I say we should, should, should


On the great wide open harbour, city lights reflected there

Reveal that I’ve been waiting, now my heart has been laid bare


I miss my man

He waits alone

We call each other

On the telephone, phone, phone


I’ve talked and I have listened, to the friends that I am with

My head says just don’t go there, but my heart it’s in a grip


I love you baby

You love me too

It’s not plain sailing

From my point of view, view, view


Bridge:

I’m happy when I’m with you, I’m lonely when I’m not

But I don’t know if that’s enough to give this love a shot

I want to be the one you love that gives you everything

I want to be the one in life that makes your heart have wings


I miss you baby

I’m flying high

I’m coming home

These wings will fly, fly , fly


Across the sea and rivers to the far north of this land

You’re playing in the valley

I just want to hold your hand…
