Jamieson Tobey - Golden Wing lyrics
From the time they named him "golden wing" he heard the oceans' wish was to bury him in sand and hold him to the land.
so, time has left him so unsure and now "she" senses it and marches to the shore. and he knows what she's come for
he looks at himself and sees two shining golden wings and he looks to the sky and vows,
"before i grow too old i'm gonna prove my worth in gold...
i have walked the ground on my two feet, reluctantly, cuz' they said to me, 'you can't fly golden wing'
so, i'm prepared to show what i've come to know, so look out below, cuz' tonight i'm gonna fly these golden wings"
now he knows his flight will be the first and the last of the flights they'll see cuz' he knows there's a place for him where gold colors everything..
and so they all form a crowd, they're gathering round with their warnings and their doubts that ideas of this kind are sound, should they ever leave the ground.
"i have walked the ground on my two feet, reluctantly, cuz' you said to me, 'you can't fly golden wing.'
so i'm prepared to show what i've come to know, so look out below, cuz' tonight i'm gonna fly these golden wings..
i guess it's time to say goodbye as i'm off the sail the great blue sky
and with room allowed for just 2 things, my dignity and pride i bring
i hope that now your lesson is learned and you're dealing with the guilt you've earned
you may forget the words that i now sing, but you will always remember the flight of golden wing"
a man's not a man, til he's decided to push logic aside to make room for his pride
and so they all feel no surprise when he falls from the sky and proves them all right
