I Wish We Could Fly Away

weekend nearly overThe weekend is flying by at an alarming pace! It’s almost Monday here in England which means we  all go back to the grindstone! So I am going to make the most of the rest of today by ringing my sister and going for a shuffle (that’s how I would describe my attempts to jog!)

You may have noticed that I have already published a post today for SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY. But I am going to post a second, because I don’t believe anyone has featured it today and I would like to introduce you to a band I used to love as a teenager.

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: BIRD/FLY/SKY/WING

And I thought their lead singer had a great voice. She was an absolute pleasure to listen to. At the time there were some interesting male voices on the scene. From the rough and ready end who slurred the lyrics, to the electro-tweaked shrieky voices. I loved female voices setting off tracks that were indulgent in heady guitar riffs. It really was music to the ears!

The track I have chosen is one of their lesser known songs perhaps. But it qualifies for today’s SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY theme. This is “Worms and Angels”

Here and now, we are alone
Time, she will hold her breath
Only the worms and angels

Know our names
But they have not found us
Although they surround us
I feel the distance closing

Come along, for you and I know
We’ve lived through the centuries
We’ve ridden the darkest horses

All our lives
We hunted our enemies
We fought with a fallacy
It’s time we were all God’s children

Far away, the galaxies soar
The stars are exploding still
I wish we could fly away
Fly away

Here and now, for you and I know
That true love is deathless
These crumbling days are ending

By my side
Let’s walk in the garden
We’ll sleep in the ivy
We’ll be with the worms and angels

    1. They were a band I really liked. I think these are two of their biggest songs in the charts:

      As a teenager I loved a song of their’s called “Go Away”!!! Just the kind of thing a teenager can’t resist:
