WHEN I FLY

From the album God & The Girl

 

WHEN I FLY, WHEN I FLY

WHEN I FLY THIS WORLD

PUT A ROSE UPON MY GRAVE

AND FORGET ABOUT ME GIRL

 

WHEN I'M GONE, WHEN I'M GONE

WHEN I LEAVE YOU BEHIND

DRINK THE WHISKEY AND THE WINE

AND GET ON WITH YOUR LIFE

 

WHEN I GO, WHEN I GO

WHEN MY HOME IS FAR ABOVE

THROW A STONE INTO THE SEA

AND GO FIND ANOTHER LOVE

 

BUT I WILL WATCH, I WILL WATCH

I WILL WATCH YOU FROM ON HIGH 

FROM THE CITY IN THE SKY

EVERY DAY AND EVERY NIGHT

 

AND I WILL WAIT, I WILL WAIT

OUTSIDE THE HEAVENS' GATE

WAIT TO SING AND CELEBRATE 

AT THE HOUR YOU MEET YOUR FATE

 

WHEN YOU FLY, WHEN YOU FLY,

WHEN YOU LOSE YOUR PRECIOUS LIFE

I WILL BE THERE AT YOUR SIDE

WE WILL WALK INTO THE LIGHT
