"Kite" as written by and Nick Heyward....
Life like that
Delicious with clause
You never get the truth just promises galore
Fool at the heart
Don't look down
Everybody loves you when you're playing the clown

Oh, oh mother dear
Don't let them shoot your kite down
Oh, oh mother dear
Don't let them shoot your kite
Out of the sky
Another year came
Glorious sun
I tried to be an acrobat
Before I could run
The afternoon came
Trumpets play
Oh maybe I'll get out of here one day
Father, oh father
Everybody's young
And far too serious
Oh, oh mother dear
Don't let them shoot my kite down
Oh, oh father yeah
You'd let them shoot me down for sure
Another year
Don't let them shoot my kite
Out of the sky - life's like that
Oh, oh mother dear
Don't let them shoot my kite down
Oh, oh mother dear
Don't let them shoot me out of
The sky
Mother dear
Don't let them shoot your kite down
Out of the sky...

    General CommentI have a correction...in the second line, I'm pretty sure that it's "Delicious with claws."

    General CommentAnd also, I've decided this song's political. Politicians give us empty promises.

    The second part is a young soldier speaking to her parents, and the kite represents her life. The soldier didn't realize exactly what she was getting into, and now she regrets it. "Maybe I'll get out of here one day."

    Sad.

    General CommentKeep in mind, this is a cover of a song by Nick Heyward. The lyrics were originally written and sung by a man.
