mike batt – children of the sky lyrics

Loading...

out in the deserts of darkness and dreams
out though the oceans of sadness we sailed
venturing onwards through mystical scenes
blown on the whim of the wind that prevailed
we had no reason to doubt the truth
driven by danger and discontent
and the drums of youth

don’t let the memory die
childen of the sky, heroes of the sea
and as your life p-sses by
remember how it feels to be
children of the sky

searching on mountains of wisdom and fears
searching in forests of feathers and snow
travelling through valleys of secrets and tears
where only the brave or the foolish would go
watching for signs in an empty sky
we never thought that the rain would fall
as the years went by

don’t let the memory die
childen of the sky, heroes of the sea
and as your life p-sses by
remember how it feels to be
children of the sky

don’t let the memory die
childen of the sky, heroes of the sea
and as your life p-sses by
remember how it feels to be
children of the sky

“just the place for a snark!” the bellman cried
as he landed his crew with care;
supporting each man on the top of the tide
by a finger entwined in his hair

the bellman himself they all praised to the skies –
such a carriage, such ease and such grace!
such solemnity, too! one could see he was wise
the moment one looked in his face!

but the danger was past – they had landed at last
with their boxes, portmanteaus, and bags:
yet at first sight the crew were not pleased with the view
which consisted of chasms and crags

he served out some grog with a liberal hand
and bade them sit down on the beach:
and they could not but own that their captain looked grand
as he stood and delivered his speech
