Flying Man is a song introduced on the Mother soundtrack. Flying Man is the only song on the Mother soundtrack which doesn't appear in Mother itself.

Lyrics

The tune was given words on the vocal soundtrack for Mother, and appeared as the sixth track of that album. The song was performed by Louis Philippe.

Life is but a moment
a single grain of sand
that sifts right through the hourglass
and slips right through your hand

you've shown me how
to make each moment count
and I know now
what life's all about

Life is but a twinkle
the winking of an eye
a star that lights the universe
a flash across the sky

you came to me
just like a shooting star
you gave to me
the love that's in your heart

when you live for love
how precious life can be
when you give your love

I truly do believe
if only for a moment
it's a miracle to see

so shine for all the world tonight
and live for love, give your love to me

na na na, na na na na,
na, na na na na,
na, na na na na
na, na na

Life is but a twinkle
the winking of an eye
a star that lights the universe
a flash across the sky

You came to me
just like a shooting star
you gave to me
the love that's in your heart

When you live for love
how precious life can be
when you live for love

I truly do believe
if only for a moment
it's a miracle to see

so shine for all the world tonight
and live for love, give your love to me

na na na, na na na na,
na, na na na na,
na, na na na na
na, na na

When you live for love
how precious life can be
when you give your love

I truly do believe
if only for a moment
it's a miracle to see

  • so shine for all the world tonight

and live for love, give your love to me
