Abba - Eagle
Tekst en muziek: Benny Andersson en Björn Ulvaeus
(1978)






They came flying from far away
Now I’m under their spell
I love hearing the stories that they tell
They’ve seen places beyond my land
And they’ve found new horizons
They speak strangely, but I understand



And I dream I’m an eagle
And I dream I can spread my wings
Flying high, high
I’m a bird in the sky
I’m an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high
What a feeling to fly
Over mountains and forests and seas
And to go anywhere that I please



As all good friends, we talk all night
And we fly wing to wing
I have questions and they know everything
There’s no limit to what I feel
We climb higher and higher
Am I dreaming or is it all real



Is it true I’m an eagle
Is it true I can spread my wings
Flying high, high
I'm a bird in the sky
I’m an eagle
I'm an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high
What a feeling to fly
What a feeling
Over mountains and forests and seas
And to go anywhere that I please



And I dream I’m an eagle
And I dream I can spread my wings
Flying high, high
I’m a bird in the sky
I’m an eagle
I’m an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high
What a feeling to fly
What a feeling
Over mountains and forests and seas



High, high
I’m a bird in the sky
I’m an eagle
I’m an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high
What a feeling to fly
What a feeling
Over mountains and forests and seas
And to go anywhere that I please
