From a Float Plane

                                                           Written by: Laurie Thain and Gord Maxwell

Riding along the seawall in the early morning light

I stopped to watch a float plane

Winding up and taking flight.

And as I watched it clear the Lion's Gate and climb into the sky

I wondered what the coast would look like

From that float plane flying by.




So I close my eyes

And dream of what I'd see

If I were flying free

In a float plane

(Oh) It looks so heavenly to me

I’m sure nothing looks the same

From a float plane


We could fly over Grouse Mountain

and circle back to English Bay

Through the heart of Vancouver 

And Granville Island on our way

West across the Georgia Strait, islands and sea below 

To Tofino or Victoria or anywhere you’d like to go.


CHORUS: (Spoken)

Look down, there's a lighthouse

There must be a million sailboats in the bay.

The ferry boat looks like a toy

What a picture-perfect day.
