The Fly Lyrics

Oh, isn't it strange
How we move our lives for another day
Like skipping a beat?
What if a great wave should wash us all away?
Just thinking out loud
Don't mean to dwell on this dying thing
But looking at blood
It's alive right now
Deep and sweet within
Pouring through our veins
Intoxicate, moving wine to tears
Drinking it deep
Then an evening spent dancing
It's you and me
Oh, this love will open our world
From the dark side we can see the glow of something bright
There's much more than we see here
Don't burn the day away
Don't burn the day
Don't burn the day away

Is this not enough
This blessed sip of life?
Is it not enough
Staring down at the ground?
Oh, then complain and pray for more from above
Ya greedy, little pig
Stop, just watch your world trickle away
Oh, it's your problem now
It'll all be dead and gone in a few short years
Oh, just love will open our eyes
Just love will put the hope back in our minds
Much more than we could ever know
Oh, so, don't burn the day away
Don't burn the day away

Oh, come sister, my brother
Shake up your bones, shake up your feet
I'm saying open up
And let the rain come pouring in
Wash out this tired notion
Oh, that the best is yet to come
But while you're dancing on the ground
Don't think of, oh, when you're gone
Love (love), love (love), love (love), what more is there?
We need the light of love in here
Don't beat your head
Dry your eyes
Let the love in there
There's bad times
But that's OK
Just look for love in it
And don't burn the day away

Look, here are we
On this starry night staring into space
And I must say
I feel as small as dust
Lying down here
What point could there be troubling
Head down wondering what will become of me?
Why concern? we cannot see
But no reason to abandon it
The time is short, time, that's all right
May we'll go out in the middle of the night
Take your hands from your eyes, my love
All good things must come to an end some time
But don't burn the day away
Don't burn the day away

Come sister, my brother
Shake up your bones, shake up your feet
I'm saying open up
And let the rain come flooding in
Wash out this tired notion
That the best is yet to come
But while you're dancing on the ground
Don't think of when you're gone
Love (love), love (love), love (love), what more is there?
'Cause we need the light of love in here
Don't beat your head
Dry your eyes
Let the love in there
There are bad times
Well, that's OK
Just look for love in it, yeah
Just look for love in it there, oh, love
