“Flying” Lyrics

Silks and satins and velvet soft evenings and penthouse nights
Way down below me the maze of city streets shine
I hear the soul and the heart of the city, it pounds
While I fly up here
I’m two thousand feet above ground

It happened tonight
I had to do it or die
It happened tonight
I finally learned how to fly

And so diving and soaring and swirling, I fly like the wind
How did I do it? I wouldn’t even know where to begin
I was playing a solo on my electric guitar
And the next thing I know
I’m sailing around through the air

It just happened tonight
I had to do it or die
It happened tonight
I finally learned how to fly

[break]

I’m flying, I’m flying, I’m flying, what more can I say?
It’s a thrill beyond words, it completely captures the day
And so now I’ll go flying, as well as go dancing, all night
I feel like a feather
I feel like a small beam of light

It just happened tonight
I had to do it or die
It happened tonight
I finally learned how to fly

[break]

I’m flying, I’m flying, I’m flying
I’m flying, I’m flying, I’m flying
I’m flying, I’m flying, I’m flying
I’m flying
