A song about possibilities and about the amazing things humans
are able to imagine and then create with their hands.
Jürgen wrote the music, Gudrun and Kim worked together on
the lyrics: our first collaboration!

Music: Jürgen Treyz, Words: Kim Edgar / Gudrun Walther

lyrics

TAKE FLIGHT
Can we take flight, horizon wide as an ocean?
Will we cling tight, or expand our view?
In our hands lie solutions we have been seeking
Can we hold fast ‘til our dreams come true?
The first hands that sparked
And kindled a flame
Way back at the dawn of our days
Did they fully grasp
What this radiance meant
Did a witness watch, heart ablaze?
Strong with our hands,
We’ve been forging and making
Mending with finger and wrist
Weaving and birthing and tending and shaping
Firm, hand in hand, we resist
Can we take flight…
Hands can distress,
Destroy or impair,
With pencil or fists clenched to bruise,
The world can be cold, fearsome and dark
Our blessing’s the freedom to choose
Strong with our hands…
Can we take flight…
