About China In Your Hand

"China in Your Hand" is a song by the British band T'Pau, released from their album Bridge of Spies. A re-recorded version was released as a single in October 1987, spending five weeks at number one in the UK and is arguably the song for which the group is best known in their native Britain, though their debut single "Heart and Soul" was a much bigger hit in the United States. "China in Your Hand" was the 600th single to top the UK charts and kept George Harrison's "Got My Mind Set on You" from hitting the top spot. The song also peaked at number 1 in Belgium, Iceland, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway and Switzerland. In 2015, the power ballad was voted by the British public as the nation's 11th favourite 1980s number one in a poll for ITV.

It was a theme she had on a scheme he had
Told in a foreign land
To take life on earth to the second birth
And the man was in command
It was a flight on the wings of a young girl's dreams
That flew too far away

Don't push too far your dreams are china in your hand
Don't wish too hard, because they may come true
And you can't help them
You don't know what you might have set upon yourself
China in your hand

Come from greed never born of the seed
Took a life from a barren hand
Oh, eyes wide like a child in the form of man
A prophecy for a fantasy
The curse of a vivid mind

Don't push too far your dreams are china in your hand
Don't wish too hard, because they may come true
And you can't help them
You don't know what you might have set upon yourself
China in your hand
Whoa, your hand
Your hand

Don't push too far your dreams are china in your hand
Don't wish too hard, because they may come true
And you can't help them
You don't know what you might have set upon yourself
But you shouldn't push too hard no, no

Don't push too far your dreams are china in your hand
Don't wish too hard, because they may come true 
And you can't help them
You don't know what you might have set upon yourself
Because they're only dreams
And you shouldn't push too hard no no
