Well I put my trust in the wings of faith, and I let my broken spirits rise,
And on the tides of trust, carried far away, I was lost amongst the boundless, clear, blue skies.
If I only saw what I cared to see it was just because I feared I'd lose it all,
But there was so much more than I dared believe - even so I had a long, long way to fall.
So I set my course by the light you shine; spread my sails across your silken, sea-blue sky
Did you melt my wings when I climbed too high to see if I would fall or if I'd fly?
Well I lived and learned, and I loved and lost, but is wisdom really worth that kind of pain?
Why are we always drawn to the flames that burn - even now I feel these old wings taking up the strain
So I'll set my course by the light you shine, spread my sails across your silken, sea-blue sky.
Will you melt my wings if I climb too high? Will you watch me fall, or see me fly?
Watch me fly... see me fly... help me fly...?
