She Flies On Strange Wings
Golden Earring Lyrics


Lonely is the night without you
Just as lonely as the shepherd without sheep
And where flies the falcon,
In the high sweet air
Without hunting this Sprane Valleys deer

She wears softness as a gown
She spreads magic all around
Her feathers still untouched
She takes but nothing and she gives so much

She flies on strange wings
She flies on strange winds
She brings strange things
She flies on strange wings

She takes off when she desires
Silence grows on her lips
She can bring you so much higher
She spreads love on all her trips, yeah

She flies on strange wings
She flies on strange winds
She brings strange things
She flies on strange wings

Woke up this morning
And this feeling came to my head
To fly with her from sky to sky
'Cause my mind seemed to be dead
So I floated up towards her
On my mutilated wings
But all the blackness sings against me now
It's the lady of the strange wings
Yeah, it's the lady of the strange wings
Ooh, it's the lady of the strange wings
Ooh, it's the lady, it's the lady, lady of the strange wings

Ooh oh

She wears softness as a gown
She spreads magic all around
Her feathers still untouched
She takes but nothing and she gives so much

She flies on strange wings
She flies on strange winds
She brings strange things
She flies on strange wings

These guys had a couple of smash hits, and they WERE great hits, but otherwise they have been pretty much overlooked in the US. This song is a perfect argument that a song doesn't have to be a "smash hit" to be truly great! In spite of their huge hits, this is my favorite Golden Earring cut!

Most people from the USA never look outside the US music wise

For three great bands that really never caught fire in the US believe it or not two great Dutch bands golden earring and shocking Blue.
And I'm the English scene other than one psychedelic hit pictures of matchstick Men although they kept on going until I can't remember his name he just recently died Status quo had a huge following all over except for the states.

I’m wondering, are there any other young people like me (I’m 18) that listen to these guys?? Golden Earring are a great and super underrated band. My favorite album is “Together” and to be honest, I couldn’t tell you what my favorite song is by them.

But music like rock , country , blues seems far less liked by young people. Its more about rap and pop now

@Ronnie JJ Cale was one of the principal song writers in the 70s and 80s but rarely played on stage. I actually saw one of his rare performances and have a professional bootleg that FOH allowed him to go through the sound board
