King’s heart needs to run faster than the heart of a king run
wants to have more than the world would have given to him
and that bird raised up his wings to fly but he was weighed
down by the heavy weight of his shiny crown, frightened by the boughs no promise made, but if you don’t fall far enough
he said he’d raise me up x 3

flower in the sun breath of the wind
plucked from the soil left in the breeze
golden was the shrine the water dazzling
and still waiting by the edge faithful to the end
and if you don't fall far enough
and if you don't fall high enough
he said he'd raise me up

boats come in this town saintly humming for the summer harvest
they fill their cabins up and leave the village starving
where they used to play and sit the gate is swinging in the back garden
but Ophelia she didn’t drown
she’s just swimming with the river garlands
swim swimming she’s just swimming with the river
and if you don't fall far enough
and if you don't fall high enough
he said he'd raise me up
