First light was stunning when brightness started running
you came from nothing into the glowing arms of your mother
You’re struggling to walk, forming all your thoughts
caught between fear and delight, hands out for your very first helicopter flight

I want to start my life again I want to start my life again
I want to start my life again but you’re a little star, star, star

Across the mossy tiles there flew a rooftop lullaby
into the smoke of chimney fires and the wind carried it for miles and miles
guardian by your side will help you go the mile and
long after the sun is dead you’re spoonfed and tucked into bed

I want to start my life again……….

There is something in you, you don’t find everyday,
Everything you touch is shiny and new will it soon turn to decay
You’re struggling to walk, any second will take off
caught between fear and delight hands out for your very first helicopter flight……….

I want to start my life again…………
