  • Get your sweets from the candy man
    Get your truth from the shelf
    Don't buy into the fairy tale
    Just be good to yourself
    'Cause you know that I love you, girl
    You're my way out of hell
    But I've just one more song to sing
    One more story to tell

    Ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh
    Ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh
    Ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh

    When I'm tired of the bright lights
    When I'm tired of the wine
    I'll go down to Wheal Mexico
    To the depths of the mine
    When I'm forty years older
    When I'm wrinkled and wise
    I will trade all my liberty
    For that look in your eyes

    Reason gonna blind you
    Cripple and confine you
    Listen as your poor heart breaks
    Take a trip to America
    Let the wind blow right through your hair
    We'll buy beer and some hope to share
    Every day

    'Cause freedom
    Is no small thing
    We punish the child
    For flying too high
    For rushing like the wind

    Reason gonna blind you
    Cripple and confine you
    Listen as your poor heart breaks
    (Stars are like diamonds we fly across the sky for them)
    (No one's gonna change who we are)

    'Cause freedom
    Is no small thing
    We punish the child
    For flying too high
    For rushing like the wind Writer/s: Curt Smith, Roland Orzabal
