LEARNING TO FLY (© Words and music by Paul F. Cowlan )
This song is for Gabriele. Heroism doesnt necessarily consist in hi-tech, blood-lust and heavy armour.
Learning to fly is walking on air.
Nobody cares if you fall.
Only a true believer
would dream of doing it at all.
Ive seen you tremble on the mountain,
Ive seen the tears in your eye,
when you tell me how much you fear the darkness;
but youre still brave enough to try.
First time its once around the houses.
The second time, youve never flown so high.
Every day I see you growing stronger.
Youll soon be taking to the sky,
and the world will see you fly.
Every day you grow a little stronger.
Learning to fly.
