Story Behind the Song

I'm the string, baby, and you are the kite...

Lyrics

Hang out the streamers
Bring out the wine
Crack open the bottle
Cos baby, you're mine
There's bunting on the staircase
And ribbons in the hall
Some have a half-measure
But i've got it all

Let yours be the last face I see every night
Soft crows the rooster, the dawn clings so bright
When the stars are all staggering home in the light
You're the string baby, and I am the kite

Let yours be the only hand that I hold
To have me, to hold me, until I grow old
May our eyes be wide open and our hearts never cold
I'm the lost sheep and you are the fold

May I still read your face when my eyes lack their lustre
In a warm feather bed, in the cold winds that bluster
May the dust of sweet blessings rain on you tonight
I'm the string baby, and you are the kite
