A feather in the air, warned me to beware The sky grew dark and I got scared High above the trees a star said to me "Fly like that feather in the wind" A penny diving deep, far into the well Dusty bottles on an empty shelf I needed to be, come and rescue me Fly like that feather in the wind... Like a feather in the wind... Don't forget my name, picture in a frame Shadow in the grey, with broken wings Like we can't go on, all our hope is gone Fly like a feather in the wind I had to be strong just to carry on Somewhere where the sun meets the sea Then I thought of you, a heart so pure and true You were my feather in the wind... Like a feather in the wind... I was lost and found when I looked around Smiling I could not believe my eyes All those feathers blew for everyone I knew They were all feathers in the wind I still carry on, trying to be strong Somewhere where the sun meets the sea I still think of you a heart so pure and true You were my feather in the wind...
