Lyrics
(Dennis Larden)

Seen it written and I heard it told
That a man does things for gold
Drives him crazy and it makes him old
Before his time.

Sitting round waiting for the rainbows end
Wasting time and losing friends
Never knowing that it ends before his eyes
But those of us who seek the truth will be there when she rides.

Talking 'bout wings to carry us over the water
Talking 'bout wings picking us up by the waves
Ah, so many things can bread misunderstanding
We'll soon be landing on velvet wings.

Once met a man and his words were wise and he looked me in the eyes
He said brother don't you compromise in what you feel
All things figure in a bigger plan
And its up to every man.

Just to do the best
To reach his own ideals
And build a world around himself
And live it like he feels.

Talking 'bout wings to carry us over the water
Talking 'bout wings picking us up by the waves
Ah, so many things can bread misunderstanding
We'll soon be landing on velvet wings.

Talking 'bout wings to carry us over the water
Talking 'bout wings picking us up by the waves
Ah, so many things can bread misunderstanding
We'll soon be landing on velvet wings...
