I hear voices sometimes in the night
But when it’s light
I can go to sleep the sun is singing lullabies to me

You said wait the time’s not right
But winter’s bite was too cold for me
Left the keys hanging by the door
And what we’ll do and where we’ll go is yet unknown

Think I dreamt of butterflies swooping by
I tried but could not speak rendered breathless by their beauty
I flew south with flocks of geese, their flapping wings beat the time in threes
I wake up enchanted but alone
And who we’ve been and what we’ve known
I think I’ll fly alone
And in the night sometimes, and in the night, I hear your voice

You say, “you have to bear the world’s weight”
But I am floating out to space
And should this fail, I’ll find another way
To be as light as light can be

So what if I fly alone, what if I fly alone?
I’ve never done things for show, so what if I fly alone?

And what we’ll do and where we’ll go
And who we’ve been and what we’ve known
And in the night sometimes

You say…..
