lyrics

EAGLE OF THE SUN
my long shadow keeps a-walking me a-home
yes my long shadow keeps a-walking me a-home
sun is behind my shoulder
I'm a day older
and my long shadow keeps a-walking me a-home
yes my long shadow keeps a-walking me a-home

can I call you my lover?
can I call you my lover?
sun is behind my shoulder
I'm a day older
and my long shadow keeps a-walking me a-home
yes my long shadow keeps a-walking me a-home

woke up this morning
yes I woke up this morning
sun was smiling through my window
you smiled at me
and my heart flew out through the window
my heart flew out like an eagle to the sun

well it flew up above the city
flew up above the clouds
sun was grinning like some all-creatin' fool
I knew I loved you
cause my heart flew up like an eagle
my heart flew up like an eagle to the sun

it flew up into the blue blue blue
through to the other side of the sky
sailed around the mountains of the moon
sun was singing his celestial tune
I could still see your smile lighting up my room
and my heart flew on like an eagle
my heart flew on like an eagle to the sun

eagle of the sun--am I the only one
who hears your heart a-beating
when we're alone and sleeping
in the palm of the sun
in the palm of the sun

only for so long can you fly with the sun
he folds up his wings when the day is done
night extends her silver-black wings
speckled with stars and songs of distant things
you seem to know songs that she sings
and I found myself back on the ground
a long way from town
and wond'ring how I ever got down

and my long shadow keeps a-walking me a home...
