Lyrics: (Ahhhhh) (Ahhhhh)
In the land where horses born with eagle wings And honey bees have lost their stings They're singing forever, ooh yeah Lions den with fallow dear And rivers made from wines so clear Flow on and on forever Dragons fly like sparrows through the air And baby lambs where Samson dares To go on, on, on, on
My fairy king (he rules the air) And can see the things that are not there for you and me to see (he rules the air and turns the tides, oooh yeah) My fairy king (he guides the winds) He can only do right and nothing wrong
Ahhhhh Then came man to savage in the night To run like thieves and to kill like knives To take away the power from the magic hand To bring about the ruin to the promised land
Ahhh, ah, ahh-ahhhh Ahh-ahhhh
They turn milk into sour Like the blue in the blood of my veins (Why can't you see it) Fire burning in hell With the cry of a screaming pain (Son of heaven set me free and let me go) Sea turns dry no salt from sand Seasons fly no helping hand Teeth don't shine like pearls for poor man's eyes No more
Someone, someone Has drained the colour from my wings Broken my fairy circle ring And shamed the king in all his pride Changed the winds and wronged the tides Mother Mercury, look what they've done to me, yeah I cannot run I cannot hide
