You know I dreamed about you
I missed you for 29 years
Bird that flys out of order
Underneath the sky

And now I wear the wings
You know I dreamed about you
For 29 years before
I saw you

You know I dreamed about you
I missed you for 29 years
You know I dreamed about you
For 29 years before
I saw you

You know I dreamed about you
I missed you for 29 years
You know I dreamed about you
For 29 years before
I saw you
