I only go up at night
When the moon is full
And the evening breezes blow
I go only high enough
To see the ground below

I only go up at night
That's when no one else can see me
Being foolish
And wishing for one more chance
To do it all again

I was so much younger then
And blinded by the beauty of the sun
It looked so lovely
I just had to touch it once
Then tumbling down into the sea
Now I know
Now I know


He taught me how to fly
And like any son
I wanted to make good my first impression
Words from the wise
Are wasted on the foolish and the young

Now I only go up at night
The illusion is complete
No one knows of my survival
The twilight hours
Are mine, and mine alone

I was so much younger then
And blinded by the beauty of the sun
It looked so lovely
I just had to touch it once
Then tumbling down into the sea
Now I know
Now I know



I was so much younger then
And blinded by the beauty of the sun
It looked so lovely
I just had to touch it once
Then tumbling down into the sea
Now I know
