The King said to the Queen I'd like to fly
Let's join the birds up in the air
Only the best airplane, there's nothing I can't buy
My hands are steady, I'm young and ready, and it's good to be alive

Well, the sea was blue and birds were flying
And she never gave it a second thought
The engine was loud, and slightly whining
But it was working just the way it ought

They say it's clear off the coast of the vineyard tonight
And these meters read that everything's all right
But love give me your hand 'cause I just don't understand
Why I can't tell the sea from the land

Funny how it all ends up so tragic
All we could see was a lucky pair
But for the golden couple so full of life and magic
Alone and helpless in the air

The cruelty of water and the despair it can bring
The power of forgiveness from afar
Notions of love in a golden wedding ring
Riding on that brilliant burning star
