Fly (LYRICS)
:: SARAH BRIGHTMAN
:: album details

1. The Fly

I know a colourful room
Where we can fly
And take a spin to the moon
On Aunt Angelica's pie
I am a fly, pie in the sky

Across a harvest of stars
And constellations
We'll drink
A starjuice on Mars
Miss our connection and cry
Coz I don't know why
I am a fly

The major is dead
It went to his head
We gonna fly


2. Why

Why, why don't we try
Like the wind we'll learn how to fly again
To reach heaven we'll drown our sorrows
Feel the fury coming down on you baby
Lying on a heart of a baby
Sitting in a vision of blue

Tell me why
Those innocent lies, tell me why
The mystery of love is to live

Live and let live
Break the chains and try to forgive me now
For the future on the wings of an eagle
And our hearts lie in the hands of an angel

Dreaming on the wings of an eagle in yellow
Sitting on a moutain top

Tell me why
Those innocent lies, tell me why
The mystery of love is to live
Those innocent lies, tell me why
The mystery of love is to live

Maybe you can try
Maybe I can try
Maybe they can try
Maybe we should try

Tell me why
Those innocent lies, tell me why
The mystery of love is to live
(maybe we could try)
Those innocent lies, tell me why
(maybe I can try)
The mystery of love is to live
(maybe they can try)
Those innocent lies, tell me why
(maybe we should try)
The mystery of love is to live


3. Murder In Mairyland Park

Things that happen just once
If she'd looked she would have seen it
He was standing all night
'Cross the street very still
And they go out so easily
The street lamps
The cars come and go

Crazy, so crazy

But I see you too clearly
I don't trust myself anymore
If it's all true just say it
I may already know
That sound when it's over
The sidewalks will carry you home
And the evening so easily

Agnus, agnus
Dei
Agnus, agnus
Qui tollis peccata [mundi] ...

Crazy, so crazy


4. How Can Heaven Love Me

Fell from the grace of heaven's prow
Listening as the abyss calls our name
Descending stars from golden clouds
Falling to the rage of angels
Bringer of light from on high
Bound to the earth and unable to fly

I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
How can heaven love me
I don't know,
You don't know
I don't know,
You don't know
I don't know ...

How can heaven love you

We loved in a time before the fall
Welcome to the arms of solitude
Beneath us the heat that hearts exude
Ah is this really heaven?
We'd fight with the gods for our dreams
Where paradise falls eternity screams

I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
How can heaven love me
I don't know,
You don't know
I don't know,
You don't know
I don't know ...

How can heaven love you

Die Welt ein Tor
Zu tausend Wüsten stumm und kalt
Wer das verlor, was du verlorst
Macht nirgends halt


Crystallised as starlight
Lost in paradise

I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
How can heaven love me
I don't know,
You don't know
Ooh I don't know,
You don't know
I don't know ...

How can heaven love you

I don't know,
You don't know
I don't know,
You don't know
I don't know ...

How can heaven love me
How can heaven love you

I don't know,
You don't know
I don't know,
You don't know
I don't know ...

How can heaven love you

Ooh..
Don't know
I don't know...
How can heaven love me...
Woah I don't know...
How can heaven love me...
How can heaven love me...


5. A Question Of Honour

Ebbene? ... N'andrò lontana,
Come va l'eco della pia campana,
Là, fra la neve bianca;
Là, fra le nubi d'or;
Là, dov'è la speranza, la speranza
Il rimpianto, il rimpianto, e il dolor!

Ebbene? ... N'andrò lontana,
Là, dov'è la speranza, la speranza
Il rimpianto
Sola e lontana!

Two men collide
When two men collide, when two men collide

It's a question of honour
Two men collide
When two men collide, when two men collide

It's a question of honour
Two men collide
When two men collide, when two men collide

If you win or you lose,
It's a question of honour
And the way that you choose,
It's a question of honour

I can't tell what's wrong or right
If black is white or day is night
But I know when two men collide
It's a question of honour

If you win or you lose,
It's a question of honour
And the way that you choose,
It's a question of honour
If you win or you lose,
It's a question of honour
And the way that you choose,
It's a question of honour

I can't tell what's wrong or right
If black is white or day is night
I know when two men collide
It's a question of honour

Ebbene? ... N'andrò lontana,
Come l'eco della pia campana,
Là, fra la neve bianca;
Là, fra le nubi d'or;
N'andrò, n'andrò sola e lontana!
E fra le nubi d'or!


6. Ghost In The Machinery

In the heat of the moment
In the dark of night
You never see his face
For he's the ghost inside
In the heat of the moment
He will laugh at you
How can you make peace
When he's at war with you

In the heat of the moment
You're a perfect guy
Born to make mistakes
He knows the reason why
He's a shock to the system
He's a wicked clown
No matter what you do
He turns it upside down

Hu hu hu hu hu hu
Ghost in the machinery
Hu hu hu hu hu hu
Ghost in the machinery
Hu hu hu hu hu hu

In the light of a new love
In the dark of night
You can fall asleep
And dream he's out of sight
In the eyes of the children
You can read his name
They'll make the same mistakes
And that's the only way
The only way

Hu hu hu hu hu hu
Ghost in the machinery

7. You Take My Breath Away

We saw the holy men
come in from Sanchi
We touched their souls
and heard the Martyrs crying
Among the fields of red
we took the strange brew
The windless sky diwali
moon were calling to me
The deeper I go
the higher I fly with you

You take my breath away
Oh you ...
You take my breath away
Oh you ...
You take my breath away
Oh you ...
You take my breath away
Oh you ... (oh you)
You take my breath away
Oh you ... (oh you)
You take my breath away
Oh you ...

You take my breath away ...
Hey...
You take my breath away ...

Oh you (oh you)
You take my breath away
Oh you ... (oh you)
You take my breath away
Oh you ... (oh you)
You take my breath away
Oh you ... (oh you)
You take my breath away
Oh you ... (oh you)
You take my breath away
Take my breath away
Oh you ... (oh you)
You take my breath away
You take my breath away
Oh you (oh you)
You take my breath away
You take my breath away
Oh you (oh you)
You take my breath away
You take my breath away
Oh you ...


8. Something In The air

There is something in the air
Oh, there is something in the air
There is something in the air
Oh yeah

Deep within your mind you have been blind
Look around and find
There's something in the air
Sometimes I can read it in your eyes
Keep the dream alive
There's something in the air

There is something in the air
Yeah, yeah, oh yeah

Don't know why the truth becomes a lie
Makes me wanna cry
There's something in the air
So I'm going to dry the tears of pain
Wash away the rain
There's something in the air

And I can feel it ... Oh yeah
Oh I can feel it ... Everywhere

There is something in the air
Our tears will dry tomorrow
No more pain or sorrow
There's something in the air
There is something in the air
All the darkness turns to sunlight
(The) Dawning hits the long night
There's something in the air
There is something in the air

Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh yeah

We can heal the wounds of time together
It'll be forever
There's something in the air
I can feel the love that I desire
Come on take me higher
There's something in the air

Oh I can feel it ... Oh yeah
I can feel it ... Everywhere

There is something in the air
Our tears will dry tomorrow
No more pain or sorrow
There's something in the air
There is something in the air
All the darkness turns to sunlight
(The) Dawning hits the long night
There's something in the air

Something in the air
There is something in the air
There is something in the air
Is there something?
Something in the air
There is something in the air
There is something in the air
Is there something?

There is something in the air
Our tears will dry tomorrow
No more pain or sorrow
There's something in the air
There is something in the air
All the darkness turns to sunlight
(The) Dawning hits the long night
There's something in the air

There is something in the air
There is something in the air ...
There is something in the air
There is something in the air ...
There is something in the air
There is something in the air ...


9. Heaven Is Here

Good times, bad times
There's nothing I'll forget
The sun shines on our lifelines
There's nothing I'll regret
Hold me and feel me
And wrap your arms around
Coz when you love me I'm quite clear
That heaven is here

Hear my confession
We're meant to be as one
Leave me to the mystery
Of happiness to come
Touch me, I'll give you
My blessing and desire
Coz when you feel eternal fire
Then heaven is here

Bad times and street crimes
No matter where you go
Some sects preach and some fools teach
They're giving us some show
So send me an angel
And wrap your arms around
Coz when it all comes down you'll know
That heaven is here

That heaven is here, oh-oh
That heaven is here, oh-oh
That heaven is here
That heaven is here ...


10. I Loved You

It was a plastic age with plastic tears
A total addiction to the wonder years
I'm a believer was where it's at
He's singing oh Lola lady lay lady lay
She's fixing a hole down on Blue Jay Way
American Pie on your Tupperware

He paints an Andy-Pandy Campbell's tins
Boys in the jungle on your TV screen
In tricky dicky's love machine
We'll take an easy ride and have some fun
On Dylan's highway 61
In California dreaming sun

That was when I loved you
I loved you, I loved you, I loved you

They were the living years of stainless steel
Praying for a time in a fortune wheel
Smooth operator was where it's at
So welcome all of you to the pleasure dome
Of taking the look from the homeless zone
With digital aids in your telephone

Another day in paradise is nice
From Ronnie's recession's nice advice
We suffer from the longest
and one of the worst sustained
inflations in our national history.


So don't you let the sun go down on me
Coz I wanna break free from your MTV
To virtual reality

That was when I loved you
From the shadow of the past
I loved you
I never dreamed that it would last
I loved you
You gave me joy you gave me tears
I loved you
And took away the wonder years

I loved you... I loved you...

That was when I loved you
From the shadow of the past
I loved you
I never dreamed that it would last
I loved you
You gave me joy you gave me tears
I loved you
And took away the wonder years
I loved you
From the shadow of the past
I loved you
I never dreamed that it would last
I loved you
You gave me joy you gave me tears
I loved you
And took away the wonder years


11. Fly

That's one small step for man,
one giant leap for mankind


Across a harvest of stars
And constellations
We'll drink a starjuice on Mars
Miss our connection and cry
Coz I don't know why
I am a fly
It's all pie in the sky
