"Nine Million Bicycles" as written by and Mike Batt....
There are nine-million bicycles in Beijing.
That's a fact,
It's a thing we can't deny,
Like the fact that I will love you 'til I die.

We are twelve-billion light years from the edge.
That's a guess,
No one can ever say it's true,
But I know that I will always be with you.

I'm warmed by the fire of your love every day.
So don't call me a liar,
Just believe everything that I say...

There are six-billion people in the world.
More or less,
And it makes me feel quite small,
But you're the one I love the most of all.

We're high on a wire with the world in our sight,
And I'll never tire,
Of the love that you give me every night.

There are nine-million bicycles in Beijing.
That's a fact,
It's a thing we can't deny,
Like that fact that I will love you 'til I die.
And there are nine-million bicycles in Beijing,
And I know that I will love you 'til I die.

    General CommentThe song was written by Mike Batt, who discovered her and produced Katie's first three albums. He wrote many of the best songs on those albums. He has a wonderful way with his lyric rhymes. Rhymes double words like "most down" and "Ghost town". I've listened to the second verse many times and sometimes I hear the last line as "be with you", but other times it seems like it's "stay with you" which completes the double rhyme from the previous line "say it's true". In any case, it's a great song. Incidently I think we are closer to 13.7 billion light years from the ever expanding edge of the universe but the song line needs a one syllable word and like he says, who the hell knows for sure.
