    Lyrics
    Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
    I could see the city light
    Wind was blowing, time stood still
    Eagle flew out of the night
    He was something to observe

    Lyrics
    You could have a steam train
    If you'd just lay down your tracks
    You could have an aeroplane flying
    If you bring your blue sky back
    All you do is call me

    Lyrics
    Love I get so lost, sometimes
    Days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
    When I want to run away
    I drive off in my car
    But whichever way I go

    Lyrics
    In this proud land we grew up strong
    We were wanted all along
    I was taught to fight, taught to win
    I never thought I could fail
    No fight left or so it seems

    Red rain is coming down
    Red rain
    Red rain is pouring down
    Pouring down all over me
    I am standing up at the water's edge in my dream
