Tonight We Fly

Live video (4:51)

Neil: Thank you. This is the end! Cheers to you all. Thanks for coming. Thanks a lot. This is called ‘Tonight We Fly’.

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. Hard to find

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

Tonight we fly
Tonight we fly
Over the mountains,
Over the mountains,
The beach and the sea,
The beach and the sea,
Over the friends that we’ve known
Over the friends that we’ve known,
And those that we now know Over their homes.
And those whom we’ve yet to meet. We’ll fly over the writer,
And when we die, Over the lawyer, over the dancer,
Oh! will we be that disappointed or sad? Over the voyeur
If heaven doesn’t exist, Over the builder
What will we have missed? And the destroyer,
This life is the best Over the hills
We’ve ever had. And far away.

Neil: Thank you. Thank you. Thanks a lot. The Millennia Ensemble. Thank you very much, ladies and gentlemen. I’m gonna go now. Cheerio.
