Nine Million Bicycles”
That’s a fact,
It’s a thing we can’t deny
Like the fact that I will love you till I die.
We are twelve billion light years from the edge,
That’s a guess,
No-one can ever say it’s true
But I know that I will always be with you.
I’m warmed by the fire of your love everyday
So don’t call me a liar,
Just believe everything that I say
There are six BILLION people in the world
More or less
and it makes me feel quite small
But you’re the one I love the most of all
We’re high on the wire
With the world in our sight
And I’ll never tire,
Of the love that you give me every night
There are nine million bicycles in Beijing
That’s a Fact,
it’s a thing we can’t deny
Like the fact that I will love you till I die
And there are nine million bicycles in Beijing
And you know that I will love you till I die!
Turns out my girls also quite like Katie, though not as much as Amy, but it struck me this morning whilst listening that the lyrics are just so beautifully constructed. Not only the divine eastern tones intertwined with lyrics that I like, but the difference between facts and guesses. And that fact that love is a fact and not a guess.
Call me old-fashioned and a romantic but I am just so happy my girls like quality, and quality that inspires romance. I also feel quite small, but hugely blessed.
