Lyrics

Verse 1
High above the weary world
I wait and watch and think of you.
I never thought that life would find me
Laughing with the pale moon.
The patchwork of the land below me,
Endless ribbons in the night.
I’ll ne’er again be who I was:
A child before my soul took flight.
I stop to think of all I lost;
The list begins and ends with you.
Don’t be afraid of who I am.
The strength is what I’ve come into.

Chorus 1
Fly with me,
Forget the past.
We can build the future
In steel and brass.
Those below
We leave behind.

Verse 2
You really thought I’d be content
A housewife in a gilded cage?
The sea ,the sky, it’s all the same;
Adventure being what I crave
I’ll never stop, I won’t come down!
My passions here in whirring gears.
This triumph of my female soul
I will not spoil with useless tears.
The deck vibrates beneath my shoes:
The rhythm of my beating heart.
I will not mourn what might have been,
Our story’s done before it starts.

Chorus 2
Fly with me,
Forget the past.
We can build the future
In steel and brass.
Those below
We leave behind,
Conquering the clouds
As gears unwind.
