  • Everybody's looking for that something
    One thing that makes it all complete
    You'll find it in the strangest places
    Places you never knew it could be

    Some find it in the face of their children
    Some find it in their lover's eyes
    Who can deny the joy it brings
    When you've found that special thing
    You're flying without wings

    Some find it sharing every morning
    Some in their solitary nights
    And you'll find it in the words of others
    A simple line can make you laugh or cry

    You find it in the deepest friendship
    The kind you cherish all your lives
    And when you know how much that means
    And you've found that special thing
    You're flying without wings

    They're so impossible as they may seem
    You've got to fight for every dream
    'Cause who's to know
    Which one you let go
    Would have made you complete

    Well, for me it's waking up beside you
    To watch the sunrise on your face
    To know that I can say, "I love you"
    In any given time or place

    And it's little things that only I know
    Those are the things that make you mine
    And it's like flying without wings
    'Cause you're my special thing
    I'm flying without wings

    And you're the place my life begins
    And you'll be where it ends
    I'm flying without wings
    And that's the joy you bring
    My baby
    My baby, I'm flying without wings Writer/s: Steven McCutcheon, Wayne Anthony Hector
