I follow the night
Can't stand the light
When will I begin
To live again?
One day I'll fly away
Leave all this to yesterday
What more could your love do for me?
When will love be through with me?
Why live life from dream to dream?
And dread the day when dreaming ends
One day I'll fly away
Leave all this to yesterday
Why live life from dream to dream?
And dread the day when dreaming ends
One day I'll fly away
Fly, fly, away.

    General CommentThis song is one of my favourites, one of those that could be a "life theme song"... it describes me and my current situation to the letter. (Minus being a sickly prostitute, ya know! ;-) )

    This is one of those songs (all of the Moulin Rouge music, really) that makes sure the dreaming days never end.

    I couldn't agree more. I mean, who doesn't want to fly away? There is a little escapist in all of us. I can't tell you how many times, how many nights I have spent, weeping and singing this song through sobs.. absolutely passionately.

    One day, I'll fly away.
