Wing And A Prayer

 Sweet bird of sunrise
 Brown hair and sad eyes
 Cry not one tear for me
 And Iíll be home

 Everything I wanted
 Everything I hunger for
 Youíre everything I needed
 Youíre everything Iím praying for

 Wherever you go
 And wherever you are
 Iíll be hitching my star to you

 As the birds in the air
 On a wing and a prayer
 I will always be there for you

 I heard some friends say
 This war wonít last a day
 You must be brave
 And I hope youíll wait 

 Everything I wanted
 Everything I hunger for
 Youíre everything I needed
 Youíre everything Iím praying for

 Wherever you go
 And wherever you are
 Iíll be hitching my star to you 

 As the birds in the air
 On a wing and a prayer
 I will always be there for you

 And the power is in your hands
 And nothing in life is planned
 Thereíll be tears in the mist of a laughter
 And I promise
 Iíll be with you ever after

 Wherever you go
 And wherever you are
 Iíll be hitching my star to you

 As the birds in the air
 On a wing and a prayer
 I will always be there for you

 Wherever you go
 And wherever you are
 I will never be far from you

 As the birds in the air
 On a wing and a prayer
 I will always be there for you
 (repeat & fade)

 Anmerkung von Robin Gibb:
 Wing And A Prayer is a play on Sing Slowly Sisters,
 a song I wrote in 1969 about World War I when
 young British soldiers were made to feel guilty about
 not being in uniform and dying for their country.
 It was women who were used in posters and propaganda
 to encourage the men to fight for their country.
 This is a false sense of patriotism of the worst kind,
 a Government deceit which is used in all wars.
 Wing And A Prayer is a love song but also an anti-war song
 that reaches out over decades, not specically for World War I.
