Walking in the Air

Walking in the Air

We're walking in the air'
We're floating in the moonlit sky;
The people far below
Are sleeping as we fly.

I'm holding very tight
I'm riding in the midnight blue
I'm finding I can fly
So high above with you.

On across the world
The villages go by like dreams,
The rivers and the hills,
The forests and the streams.

Children gaze open mouthed,
Taken by surprise;
Nobody down below
Believes their eyes.

We're surfing in the air,
We're swimming in the frozen sky,
We're drifting over icy
Mountains floating by.

Suddenly swooping low
On an ocean deep,
Rousing up a mighty monster
From his sleep.

We're walking in the air,
We're dancing in the midnight sky


空中散步("Walking in the Air")是霍华德·布莱克为1982年改编自雷蒙德·布雷格斯1978年童书的动画电影雪人创作的歌曲。 该曲是电影的主旋律,后来成为英国电视台经年不衰的曲目。电影版本附有歌词,讲述小男孩堆的雪人带他在午夜玩耍、飞行,而第二天清晨醒来,雪人已在雪地中融化,小男孩只留下一条它送给他的蓝色围巾。

电影中的歌词部分,演唱者是圣保罗大教堂的合唱团男孩Peter Auty,单曲在1982年由哥伦比亚广播公司发布,又在1985年和1987年再次发行。

"Walking in the Air" is a song written by Howard Blake for the 1982 animated film of Raymond Briggs' 1978 children's book The Snowman. The song forms the centrepiece of The Snowman, which has become a seasonal perennial on British and Finnish television. The story relates the fleeting adventures of a young boy and a snowman who has come to life. In the second part of the story, the boy and the snowman fly to the North Pole. "Walking in the Air" is the theme for the journey. They attend a party of snowmen, at which the boy is the only human. They meet Father Christmas and his reindeer, and the boy is given a scarf with a snowman pattern. In the film, the song was performed by St Paul's Cathedral choirboy Peter Auty and this version was released as a single on CBS in 1982, and reissued in 1985 (on Stiff Records) and 1987.
