    >> Sarah Brightman
     
        When I was a girl, I had a favourite story
    Of the meadowlark who lived where the rivers wind
    Her voice could match the angels' in its glory
    But she was blind, the lark was blind

    An old king came and took her to his palace
    Where the walls were burnished bronze and golden braid
    And he fed her fruit and nuts from an ivory chalice and he prayed

    "Sing for me, my meadowlark
    Sing for me of the silver morning
    Set me free, my meadowlark
    And I'll buy you a priceless jewel
    And cloth of brocade and crewel
    And I'll love you for life if you will sing for me."

    Than one day as the lark sang by the water
    The god of the sun heard her in his flight
    And her singing moved him so, he came and brought her
    The gift of sight, he gave her sight
    And she opened her eyes to the shimmer and the splendour
    Of this beautiful young god, so proud and strong
    And he called to the lark in a voice both rough and tender

    "Come along,
    Fly with me, my meadowlark
    Fly with me on the silver morning
    Past the sea where the dolphins bark
    We will dance on the coral beaches
    Make a feast of the plums and peaches
    Just as far as your vision reaches
    Fly with me."

    But the meadowlark said no
    For the old king loved her so
    She couldn't bear to wound his pride
    So the sun god flew away and when the king came down that day
    He found his meadowlark had died
    Every time I heard that part I cried

    And now I stand here, starry-eyed and stormy
    Oh, just when I thought my heart was finally numb
    A beautiful young man appears before me
    Singing "Come
    Oh, won't you come?"
    And what can I do if finally for the first time
    The one I'm burning for returns the glow?
    If love has come at last it's picked the worst time
    Still I know
    I've got to go

    Fly away, meadowlark
    Fly away in the silver morning
    If I stay, I'll grow to curse the dark
    So it's off where the days won't bind me
    I know I leave wounds behind me
    But I won't let tomorrow find me
    Back this way.

    Before my past once again can blind me
    Fly away

    And we won't wait to say goodbye
    My beautiful young man and I.
