Eagle/Thank You For The Music

Eagle

They came flyin' from far away
Now I'm under their spell
I love hearing the stories
that they tell
they've seen places
beyond my land
and they've found
new horizons
they speak strangely
but I understand
and I dream I'm an eagle
and I dream I can spread
my wings

Flyin' high, high
I'm a bird in the sky
I'm an eagle that
rides on the breeze
High, high
what a feeling to fly
over mountains and forests
and seas
and to go anywhere
that I please

As alI good friends
we talk all night
and we fly wing to wing
I have questions
and they know everything
there's no limit to
what I feel
we climb higher and higher
am I dreamin' or
is it all real
Is it true I'm an eagle
Is it true I can spread
my wings

Flyin' high, high
I'm a bird in the sky
I'm an eagle that
rides on the breeze
High, high
what a feeling to fly
over mountains and forests
and seas
and to go anywhere
that I please

Thank You For The Music

So I say

Thank you for the music
the songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy
they're bringing
Who can live without it
I ask in all honesty
What would life be
without a song or a dance what are we
so I say thank you for the music
for giving it to me

Mother says I was
a dancer before I could walk
She says I began
to sing long before I could talk
and I've often wondered
How did it all start
who found out that nothing
can capture a heart
like a melody can
Well, who ever it was, I'm a fan
so I say

Thank you for the music
the songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy
they're bringing
Who can live without it
I ask in all honesty
What would life be
without a song or a dance what are we
so I say thank you for the music
for giving it to me

I've been so lucky
I am the girl with golden hair
I wanna sing it out to everybody
What a joy, what a life, what a chance

Thank you for the music
the songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy
they're bringing
Who can live without it
I ask in all honesty
What would life be
without a song or a dance what are we
so I say thank you for the music
for giving it to me
so I say thank you for the music
for giving it to me
