I decided to fly
I remember long agoBlowing bubbles on the Lisburn RoadHow then could I knowWell I was young before I was oldI remember on the bridgeIn a place they said was privilegedWatching the boats go up and downI was attached and detached from my terrible townAnd I decided to flyOh I decided to tryI remember long agoLived in a house on Whitebeam RoadThe summers came as they goI spend my life carrying granite stoneMy mother, father, brother, threeAnother one and that made meI cut my shin and looked up highSomething deep told me that II decided to flyOh I decided to tryI remember long agoI grew up in the South SeasThe horizon so far awayNow it's become a part of meI decided to flyI decided to tryI decided to flyYou and I decided to tryI decided to flyYou and I decided to try

the day you were born
The day you were born it must have been painted on the sandThat you would fall asleep upon my handAnd the day I first saw you in my heart I made a planTo follow you to the sunAnd I can hear it  in the wind calling nowI've seen the faces in the cloudsCome on, come out, come with me, come through and share my planRun with me through the sandCome on, come out, be open, be true and be the oneI'd follow you to the sunAnd I can hear it in the wind calling nowI've seen the faces in the cloudsThe day you were born it must have been painted on the sandThat you would fall asleep upon my handAnd the day I first saw you in my heart I made a planTo follow you to the sunTo lead you to the waterAnd to dance with you in the rainThe rainThe rain
