If I Could Fly

If I Could Fly

Boy George

Stone by the river, got no wind in my sail,
No revolutions in my soul.
Hey, revelation's just a moment away.
Soon I'm gonna be old, soon you're gonna be old.
Remember, love is not something you can keep;
It just takes the wind to blow it away.
You look so ugly as you lie there asleep.
Boy, you're pretty today, so pretty today.

When I was born they poisoned my mind.
They told me to fight but I'm not that kind.
They said I was meek but I did not mind.
It's a case of the weak leading the blind.

I see the stars have spelt your name in the sky.
I wrote it too down, here, in the sand.
When I first met you, you stirred nothing at all.
See the cards in your hand, see the cards in your hand.

And, oh, if I could fly.
I said, oh, if I could fly.
Don't you know that if I could fly,
I'd take to the sky?

I feel so special when I'm making you cry.
But I regret the things I throw in your face, I do.
This drug will kill you darling, this is no lie.
This dragon we chase, this dragon we chase.

When I was born they poisoned my mind.
They told me to fight but I'm not that kind.
They said I was meek but I did not mind.
It's a case of the weak fooling the blind.

And, oh, if I could fly.
I said, oh, if I could fly.
Don't you know that if I could fly,
I'd take to the sky?

And, oh, if I could fly.
I said, oh, if I could fly.
Don't you know that if I could fly,
I'd take to the sky? Yes I would.
