lyrics

The Last Day in July

I heard it on the radio and knew that soon I had to go and fly a kite
Looking at the open sky, do I have the wings to fly? well, I just might

Gonna get so high before the last day in July
Gonna watch it fly before the last day in July

Pulling hard upon the string hoping I can catch the wind before it dies
I never really understood that holding on can be so good if you just try
Gonna get so high before the last day in July
Gonna watch it fly before the last day in July

Twirling round or whizzing by like a jet plane in the sky above us all
I let my concentration slip and sure enough it takes a dip and starts to fall - red wings and all

I’m running to the other side to find the giant bird that died upon the sand - where all dreams land
But if I go and pick it up and try again with any luck, oh

We’re gonna get so high before the last day in July
Were gonna watch it fly before the last day in July
Oh it’s gonna fly
Just let it fly, fly, fly, fly, fly…
