Lyrics…”Walking in the Air”

We’re walking in the air
We’re floating in the moonlit sky
The people far below are sleeping as we fly

I’m holding very tight
I’m riding in the midnight blue
I’m finding I can fly so high above with you

Far across the world
The villages go by like dreams
The rivers and the hills
The forests and the streams

Children gaze open-mouthed
Taken by surprise
Nobody down below believes their eyes

We’re surfing in the air
We’re swimming in the frozen sky
We’re drifting over icy
Mountains floating by

Suddenly swooping low on an ocean deep
Rousing of a mighty monster from his sleep

We’re walking in the air
We’re dancing in the midnight sky
And everyone who sees us greets us as we fly

  1. I am curious which kind of job you have … every time I am reading your post makes me to think to some kind of cosmonaut .. (I am joking but not for real)… I like this post!! It is like is coming directly from my head!

    • ha ha…lol..a cosmonaut…we are all cosmonauts are we not? No…I wasn’t smart enough to be an astronaut…I was interested in that idea when I was a freshman in high school…and a guy from NASA came and spoke on career day…and I found out you need to get straight A’s in tough subjects like physics and chemistry and math…no way in hell…lol. I was brought up by a strong father…that said A students teach…B students follow…and C students lead….my beautiful supple young brain wasn’t developed as it should’ve been….but…I was fortunate to be near wealth and beauty (https://tincup68.wordpress.com/2012/10/21/enigma/) ….it only developed later through my own will. I also enjoyed Astronomy in college…but again…no way in hell.

      I ended up majoring in Rhetoric in college…and a business minor…while playing division one baseball on scholarship….eventually giving up baseball as I fell in love with philosophy (texts I read from my major…the Greek and Roman classics)….the story goes on an on…including the wrong decision to get a masters degree in finance……..all the costs of love…women….the root of all evil….ha ha….just kidding…I can share several pieces I wrote on this blog I took private…an autobiography of sorts…but you get the general idea from most of these posts.

      I have had lots of jobs…pimped myself out for money…they have all been in finance…good money but bored…now I work at night while others are sleeping… for a huge retailer…the kind of job you have in college…money that puts me below the poverty line and no benefits….it is quite physical and miserable…but I like being in the bowels of hell right now…being dirt poor and beyond broke…and the people I have met…single moms working three jobs…yet don’t complain…tough people…young and old…just trying to keep their heads above water…I admire these people…that never had a chance……..and I have more time…but am quite tired…and so…my fragments aren’t just speaking to other people…but also to myself…trying to wake myself up…and to start walking…once again…in the mountains…by the streams and rivers….by ocean…in the rain.
