"Walking on Air" as written by John Kenneth Wetton and Geoff Downes....
Close your eyes and look at me
I'll be standing by your side
In between the deep blue sea
And the sheltering sky
If we find no words to say
To the rhythm of the waves
Then we'll both surrender there
Walking on air

And the worries of the day lie down
Under cover of the fading clouds
The secrets of the night
Come alive in your eyes
You don't have to hurry
You don't have to try
Cause you don't have a care
You're walking on air

    General CommentI've gotta say, outside of the first album I've yet to find much I like by King Crimson..
    but this is just great.

    General CommentA met an amazing girl several months ago... I cared for her more than any girl before. This became "our" song. Unfortunatly after two tantalising months she ended up choosing her ex boyfriend of two years over me.
    I play this song very rarely, but when I do it brings tears to my eyes.

    General CommentI get the idea it's about a person having delusional romantic fantasies or dreams of an imaginary lover or fantasizing about 'what could be'/'could have been' between themselves and an actual person who has become more of an ideal.
