Lyrics

Flying Kites By Moonlight

You drew a line in the sand
so we could find our way back
You always think of things like that
things like bug spray and sun hats

But now the sun is on the rise
in West African skies
leaving you and I
on the edge of night
flying kites

You held me close, under the stars
my ear to your heart
singing its song of water and blood
and of the love you came from

But now the sun is on the rise
in West African skies
leaving you and I
on the edge of night
flying kites

She worked for hours, tears on her face
digging a nest for her eggs
we watched them fall smooth and white
you said it was a good sign

And now the sun is on the rise
in our part of the sky
bathing you and I
in the morning light
warm and bright
