Lyrics

You Can’t Fly ©2016 Karen Potje

You can walk on water
Pity all the fools left on the beach
You can work your magic
Levitate just out of reach
Silent in slow motion
Pantomime replacing speech
But when you wake up you can’t fly

You can tell the future
Such a simple parlour trick
Put your hand in fire
Lick your fingers, pinch the wick
You can work a miracle
Just a little touch will heal the sick
But when you wake up you can’t fly

You are bound to earth
You are bound to try but fail
Run aground, run aground
No wings, no sails

You can see through darkness
In your dreams you shine so very bright
Hide your fears and sorrows
Tuck them safely out of sight
Make believe you’re happy
Laugh as if your heart is always light
But when you wake up you can’t fly

You are bound to earth
You are bound to try but fail
Run aground, run aground
No wings, no sails

You can walk on water
Pity all those fools left on the beach
You can work magic
Levitate just out of reach
Silent in slow motion
Pantomime replacing speech
When you wake up you can’t fly
When you wake up you can’t fly
