Wings of Fantasy

When I’m far away
In some God forsaken place
That I’m passing through
When my emotions turn to blue, I think of you
Living day to day
Building up the debt, living in excess
Getting in over your head not caring less

Wish I could set you free, over the insanity
Imagining you and me
Flying on the wings of fantasy
High on the wings of fantasy
Fly
Living in denial chasing the dream
Living the illusion on the wings of fantasy

And up above a solitary eagle flies
Symbolising our forgotten dreams
So high in the sky
While down here I just wonder why
Am I part of nature’s scheme or just a man in a machine
Burning oil and turning wheels

Living in denial chasing the dream
Going faster and faster but running out of steam
Living the illusion accelerating past
The world’s in a blur but we’re finishing fast
So fly on the wings of fantasy
High on the wings of fantasy

Riding through the mist
But still I feel an optimist
And hope will see me through
Imaginary distances
To be with you
Still we climb
Overland till the decline
Touch the sky hopefully
Fly away on wings of fantasy

Fly on the wings of fantasy
High on the wings of fantasy
Fly
High on the wings of fantasy

Living in denial chasing the dream
Living the illusion on the wings of fantasy
