lyrics

Mother may be
And we'll all carry on flying
Mother may be
We'll all carry on climbing

I am your little girl
Clinging to your dancing skirt
Leave a trail of bread behind
Clear the birds so I can find you

I am now a woman strong
Best foot forward all day long
Pick up the trail you left behind
The trails gone cold, its hard to find you

Mother may be in the air
In this air we're breathing
Mother may be on the wing,
West to East she's fleeing
Flying high, flying low
Flying where - I just don't know!
Heard a crack, brought her down
We'll all carry on flying.

One day I may be a mother too
Will I get lost, just like you?
Leave a trail of stones next time
Precious gems I'll leave behind

Mother may be in the earth
In this earth we're mining
Mother may sleep underfoot
Resting from her climbing
Climbing high, climbing low
Climb to where - I just don't know!
Hell unseen, brought her down
We'll all carry on climbing

Mother may be
And we'll all carry on flying
Mother may be
We'll all carry on climbing
