WALKING IN THE AIR - Peter Auty & Sinfonia of London

"The Snowman" es un libro infantil inglés ilustrado escrito por Raymond Briggs y publicado en 1978. En 1982 el libro se convirtió en un cortometraje de animación de Dianne Jackson y fue nominado al Oscar en el rubro "Mejor Corto Animado" en 1983. El tema "Walking In The Air" fue escrito especialmente por Howard Blake para la película.

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

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

Children gaze open mouth 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
Arousing of a mighty monster from its sleep

We're walking in the air
We're floating in the midnight sky
And everyone who sees us greets us as we fly
