[Opening Instrumental Bridge]

We're walking in the air
We're floating in the moonlit sky
The people far below
are sleeping as we fly

I'm holding very tight;
I'm riding in the midnight blue;
I'm finding I can fly
so high above with you

[Instrumental bridge]

Far across the world
The villages go by like trees

The rivers and the hills;
The forests and the streams

Children gaze open mouth
Taken by surprise
Nobody down below,
believes their eyes

We're surfing in the air;
We're swimming in the frozen sky
We're drifting over icy
mountains floating by

[Instrumental bridge]

swooping low
on an ocean

Arousing of
a mighty monster
from its

We're walking in the air;
We're dancing in the midnight sky
And everyone who sees us
greets us as we fly
