High Fly
John Miles Lyrics


Highfly, touch the sky,
Whatcha gonna do now the well's dry?
Good time, feeling fine.
Whatcha gonna do now there's no wine?

For many years
You played the joker and you always won.
You wasted time,
Always fooling round and having fun.
Your luck ran out
Just like the sunshine when the day is done.
Your dreams subsided
When you decided that your chance had gone
Your chance to be someone.

You never tried,
You just accepted things and didn't care.
And now it's over,
You look around you but there's no one there.
It's too late now,
Face the truth and don't you try to run.
You're feelin' sorry,
And you've realised your chance has gone
Your chance to be someone.
Highfly, touch the sky,
Whatcha gonna do now the well's dry?
Good time, feeling fine.
Whatcha gonna do now there's no wine?

Highfly, touch the sky,
Whatcha gonna do now the well's dry?
Good time, feeling fine.
Whatcha gonna do now there's no wine?

Highfly, touch the sky,
Whatcha gonna do now the well's dry?
Good time, feeling fine.
Whatcha gonna do now there's no wine?

Highfly, touch the sky,
Whatcha gonna do now the well's dry?
Good time, feeling fine.
Whatcha gonna do now there's no wine?

Highfly, touch the sky,
Whatcha gonna do now the well's dry?
Good time, feeling fine.
Whatcha gonna do now there's no wine?

Haven't heard this in over 30+ years. I think Star Wars still hadn't been released. Thanks for posting

Dirk McQuickly

Excellent track...a much overlooked artist

Russ Gordon

Only overlooked in North America. We should have never missed this.

Chris Rigby

I always associate this with Jigsaw's "Sky High" which hit at exactly the same time. :)

WENDY BLINSTON

A GREAT SONG.

I still have his albums....my God, I swear I am a teenager again listening to this after so many years. I loved it so much!

Russell Brookes

Brilliant, My dad had this on the Decca 45 I was born in 1980 and heard this a lot and played it myself as I grew older, now 40 it sits amongst other great records I own treasure and will pass down also.

Been Tina Turners musical director for years.Nice work if you can get it

Mack What?

I defy anyone who knows this song to listen without spending seven seconds without your mouth wide open, head back, screaming "someone".

Sean Patterson

Sounds as good today as when I bought it
