"I'll Fly Tonight" as written by Ian Stephen Mcculloch, Leslie Thomas Pattinson and William Alfred Sergeant....
I'm gonna lift you up
I'm gonna lie you down
I'm gonna be the king of kings
You're gonna rise above
All of the other stuff
You'll be the queen of everything
Nothing's gonna be the same
Nothing's gonna be the same
I'll fly tonight
I'll fly tonight
Into your light
I'm gonna mess you up
I'm gonna let you down
I'm gonna cut you to the bone
You're gonna lose your nerve
You're gonna learn to hate
You'll have a life you've never known
Nothing's ever gonna change
Nothing's ever gonna change
I'll fly tonight
I'll fly tonight
Into your light
I'll fly tonight
I'll fly tonight
Into your light
If I should fall
From such great height
Will be I be caught
Mid-flight
If I should steer
As far and wide
Will you be near
When I go wrong
I'm gonna lift you up
I'm gonna lie you down
I'm gonna be the king of kings
Nothing's gonna be the same
Nothing's ever gonna change
I'll fly tonight
I'll fly tonight
Into you light
If I should steer
As far and wide
Will you be near
When I go wrong
When I go wrong
When I go wrong
When I go wrong
Will I go wrong
Will I go wrong

    General CommentIan actually told in an interview that this was about his (now ex-)wife Lorraine and about his OCD. He says it was an ode to her for standing by his side throughout the difficult moments and for not giving up on him despite the demons in his head (the neurosis). Meanwhile they did devorce unfortunately, but at the time the song was written all was still going well obviously, and this song was intended a dedication to his wife back then. Some consider it a romantic song with an eerie undertone, but I don't spot any eerieness. It is one of my favourite songs ever though, and one of the songs that made me fall in a deep love with this band, a love that never faded and still burns heavily.
