Story

My first attempt at lyric writing happened as a response to the announcement that my home town would host the 2000 Olympic Games.

 

When the Commonwealth Games followed suit, setting up camp in a neighbouring state some years later, I felt the same compulsion to write something for consideration. I sent my lyrics to Sven Tydeman (who is pretty much a master of everything—music, production and even the occasional vocals) who wrote an extraordinary melody. He then arranged for Anthony Snape to come in to the studio to put down vocals; however, during the recording session Anthony took our collaboration to an entirely new level; somewhere beyond my wildest imagination. This song is the result.

 

When I heard the finished track I sobbed and sent whispers of thanks out into the ether. This song empowers the human spirit and encompasses the main reason I feel compelled to write.

Lyrics

V1

You have the strength to lift yourself

Be the best

Cast aside your every fear and

Settle for no less

PC

On your quiet road less travelled

We’ll guide you when its dark

Let the sound of our hearts beating

Lead you to your one true star

Chorus

We see the spirit

Deep in your eyes

Breathe in the night

Feel so alive

You can fly

You can fly

V2

Sometimes you find you’re standing still

You can’t breathe

Close your eyes and find yourself

Embracing all your fear

Chorus 2

We see the spirit

Deep in your eyes

Breathe in the night

Feel so alive

You can fly

Bridge

So many times we learn through our lessons

So many times we feel things go wrong

So many times we’re pushed to the line

By something inside

Chorus/Outro

We see the spirit

Deep in your eyes

Breathe in the night

Feel so alive

You can fly

You can fly
