The Miracle of Flight I remember standing there, watching seagulls in the air Dancing silhouettes across the sky Couldn’t have been more than ten, lost in the reverie again Hopin’ maybe someday I could fly Didn’t care for childish things, just a pair of golden wings To take me to a new and higher high Rising up above the rest, put my pinions to the test Look at me I’m free to paint the sky CHORUS: ‘Cause the miracle of flight is on my mind both day and night Such a beautiful delight to leave the ground Just to settle back and soar to where no man’s gone before I don’t care anymore if I ever come down Bought a plane at twenty-one, tried to take it to the sun Left a trail of innocence behind It was then I knew my place, further on to outer space Searching every corner I could find Followed in the footsteps of men like Alan, Neil and Buzz Off to join the proud and privileged few Set my sights though further still, wouldn’t stop the reverie until I had red dust clinging to my shoes (Repeat Chorus) BRIDGE: I feel so at home with God’s creation Another shining star in mankind’s constellation And there are those that sit and stare and really wish that they were here Blasting off with me and heaven bound Oh can’t you see the key to find the outer reaches of your mind Can’t be done with two feet on the ground (Repeat Chorus)
