Gliding (Sunset Mix) There are three songs on this release that appear as both singles as well as tracks on albums. Of the three, this song is the only one that appeared two years in a row. Gliding (Single Edit) was released as a single in late 2018 and then found a home on our fifth release, 2019’s Kizza Me Now. Oh, something just dawned me. Give Kizza a look over. Track order. Gliding follows Spend Your Love. That’s pretty cool. Other versions of this song: Gliding (Single Edit) and Gliding


Yay yeah - I'm gliding ..

The universe is a big one .. I'm feeling right at home
Chatting up a storm with every ghost I've ever known ..
They drag those chains behind me
But they can't slow me down
'Cause I am gliding .. yay yeah .. yes I'm gliding ..
(Look at us)

Yay yeah .. I'm gliding ..

Welcome to the big one - you're in it on your own
No sugar coating here .. you'll have to stand alone
I know you can make it through - oh you were made for this
You'll soon be gliding ..
Yay yeah - yeah you're gliding

Never wanted to learn to hurt
Sent the sadness away
Lantern, lantern .. burn me bright
Like a comet 'cross the night sky

Ooh - you're gliding ..
Ooh - oh yeah you're gliding ..
You're gliding - you - are - gliding ..

Welcome to the righteous age - don't walk through that door
We have to find ourselves before they chain us to the floor
Once we hit the open road .. no need to speed at all
'Cause we'll be gliding -
Yay yeah .. oh yeah we're gliding

Never wanted to learn to hurt
Sent the sadness away
Lantern, lantern burn me bright
Like a comet 'cross the night sky

Look at us - (looking good) - Oh we're gliding
Look at us .. we are gliding

We're gliding - we - are - gliding
Oh we're gliding - yes we're gliding
Oh we're .. gliding ..

Yay yeah
