Fly baby fly

Baby bay

Vào đêm nay (baby bay)

Tay ta sau lưng chói ngay

Ta mù lòa vì em đẹp em có hay

Mọi tế bào ta khóc cay 

Ôi baby bay

Để tiếng đập trong tĩnh mạch ta hướng dẫn em thay

Chân trời không một chỗ trốn say

Em tuyệt vời

Ôi baby bay

Dù ta không được cùng em bay



Fly baby fly

Into the night sky (fly baby fly)

Behind my back, my hands tied

I’m blind by your beauty and I did try

Every fibre of my being cries

Fly baby fly

Let the pulse in my veins guide

There in the sky, there’s nowhere to hide

You’re glorious

Fly baby fly

Though I can’t be by your side
