Lyrics

The birds they sang, at break of day
"Start again", I hear them say
It's so hard to just walk away

The birds they sang, all a choir
"Start again a little higher"
It's a spark in a sea of grey

The sky is blue
Dreamed out loud 'til it's true
Then takin' back the punch I threw
My arms turn wings
Oh, those clumsy things
Send me up to that wonderful world
And then I'm up with the birds

Might have to go
Where they don't know my name
Float all over the world
Just to see her again
And I won't show or fear any pain
Even though all my armour
Might rust in the rain

A simple plot but I know one day
Good things are coming our way
A simple plot but I know one day
Good things are coming our way

Oh, yeah
