about

Remixed and remastered version of previous release. Includes a new vocal recording.

lyrics

I wasn’t paying attention
To the droning of your intentions
I was a thousand feet above Lands End
I was battling with the crosswinds

I’m in the rattling and the tension
Between gravity and the engines
Flying even closer to heaven
It’s beyond all my comprehension

All the boys are sailing and they’re never seen again
They’ve gone diving for the sirens in the waves
All the boys are sailing and they’re never seen again
You can keep the silver pennies for my eyes

Now I see the Thames, its glistening
The sky is slowly falling in

Another continent drifts below me
A compass points to my destination
I never thought that I’d feel this lonely
I never thought I’d feel so alive

Amy of the Skies

Now I see the Thames it’s glistening
The sky is falling down
