Lyrics

I’ve been watching the clock on the wall

I’ve been sitting around waiting for the fall

I’ve been looking at days going by

Taking memories out and leaving them to dry

But I am stunned by the sudden appearance of you

By the dream that could never come true

By what I have turned into

 

I’ve got my wings strapped on tight

I’ve got my face towards the light

I’ve got you in my sight

And I’m set to fly

 

I had nothing and nothing had me

I was far from land adrift and lost at sea

Time was slowly slipping away

And I was perfectly fine to let it be that way

But my breath caught the moment I looked in your eyes

And the feeling of sudden surprise

When I finally realized

 

I’ve got my wings strapped on tight

I’ve got my face towards the light

I’ve got you in my sight

And I’m set to fly

 

Love’s been a long time coming

And so many times before I lost my faith

But I finally let the light in

And at last I look ahead and see my way

 

I’ve got my wings strapped on tight

I’ve got my face towards the light

I’ve got you in my sight

And I’m set to fly
