Soon You'll Go - Howard Jones

Soon you'll go
You'll make your mark
Soon you'll go
Takin' my heart
Soon you'll soar
Into the sky
And I'll be there
To watch you fly

Tiny fingers clutching tightly round the edge of the bed
Wouldn't listen to a single word your mother said
I remember how you'd force yourself to stay awake
And wait up to hear my footsteps when I came home late

These things I will hold on to
When I can't hold on to you

Soon you'll go
You'll make your mark
Soon you'll go
Takin' my heart
Soon you'll soar
Into the sky
And I'll be there
To watch you fly

Wrote your name in giant letters scratched them into the wall
Trying to reach us when you couldn't quite express it all
Made a protest we would notice and the motive was clear
Now I understand it looking back across the years

These things I will hold on to
When I can't hold on to you

Soon you'll go
You'll make your mark
Soon you'll go
Takin' my heart
Soon you'll soar
Into the sky
And I'll be there
To watch you fly

Soon you'll go
You'll make your mark
Soon you'll go
Takin' my heart
Soon you'll soar
Into the sky
And I'll be there
To watch you fly

When it's time to say goodbye
I'll be there to watch you fly
Go on soar to the sky
Spread your wings it's your turn to fly
Cos I'll be there I'll be there to watch you fly
to watch you fly
