The buildings slept in the purple night
the wind whistled through the day
I stood up cold
and disappeared into the sky
I could fly.
Stars attached to the black ceiling
the clouds sat in the jewelled sky
a giant smile was expected
I could soar through the sky.
The city crouched under my body
can you see me in your mind's eye?
Tall buildings towering
an exciting experience
could you see me take flight?
When I flew my aspirations left me
there was nothing more to be
the sky was as dark as a devil's soul
I ascended into the sky
do you believe I can fly?
The moon glowed like hot metal
I was a mouse to the people below
the wind froze my feet
but it was all just a dream.
Buildings slept on sloped mountains
the wind hummed
a night-time melody
as I flew further into the sky
I truly believed I could fly.
