Tonight We Fly

Steven Page & The Art Of Time Ensemble cover (3:23)

Tonight we fly
Over the houses, the streets and the trees;
Over the dogs down below -
They’ll bark at our shadows
As we float by on the breeze.
Tonight we fly
Over the chimney tops, skylights and slates,
Looking into all your lives
And wondering why
Happiness is so hard to find.

Over the doctor,
Over the soldier,
Over the farmer,
Over the poacher,
Over the preacher,
Over the gambler,
Over the teacher,
Over the writer,
Over the lawyer,
Over the dancer,
Over the voyeur,
Over the builder
And the destroyer,
Over the hills
And far away.

Tonight we fly
Tonight we fly
Over the mountains,
The beach and the sea,
Over the friends that we’ve known
And those we now know
And those we have yet to meet.
And when we die,
Oh! will we be that disappointed or sad?
If heaven doesn’t exist,
What will we have missed?
This life is the best
We’ve ever had.
