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.
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.
