Skylarking

Birds fly far beyond our fingers
The sun’s in bloom and now consumes the sky
And way up there far above the city
Gods and cranes reside
So what I’ll do just for one minute is let our world’s collide

And be up with you
Up where the sky seems new
Clouds are bursting into view
And the one place I want to be is skylarking

Leaves fall where the lovers linger
The cider’s sweet and tower blocks seem to shy
And as the smoke and the laughter rises
Past expectant eyes
Where park swings creak and pipe dreams dither: that’s where we confide

Chorus

And so we’ll find an alibi
On the ground just to secure us while we’re high
Above the earth
And while we’re bathing fears abate
In our sleep now in this haze we are awake
