Fly Away

You always used to smile when you saw me here.
I knew that I was falling,
But I knew it was no use calling
For help.
Because you belonged to another,
And I couldn’t betray a friend like that,
Even though I wanted you so much that
My heart was hurting.
But I was always there for you.
Yeah, then she went and dissed you,
So I went and kissed you,
And you kissed me back.

Then you smiled for me and I smiled for you.
The sky was blue everyday,
And life was gold in every way
With you.
When you laughed the world lit up,
And whenever you were feeling down,
I dropped everything and came around
To make you smile.
Now it was always us instead of you.
She was gone but I was here,
And there were never any shadows to fear
In your eyes.

It had been so long since I’d talked with her,
I couldn’t believe my eyes when she came to my door.
She yelled and slapped me and yelled some more,
Screaming about you.
She pointed at me and said nasty things.
She accused me of stealing you.
Well I guess I just didn’t know what to do
Or say right then.
But now I wish I’d stuck up for us,
Told her off and fought right back,
Instead of letting her hang me on the rack
And wring me out.

And when she came back wanting you,
You smiled back at her and said,
“Babe, I couldn’t get you out of my head.”
And she smiled too.
My heart broke as you walked away.
You left me standing out in the cold.
You left me for someone else to hold
Right then.
Why you smiled at me but went back to her,
I guess I’ll never know,
But I have something to say before you go,
So hear my words.

Fly, fly, fly, fly, fly away
And leave me here, stranded on the ground.
I guess I lost what she just found
In you.
So fly towards the sun you seek,
Shining brighter than I ever could.
Go back to her like I always knew you would
In time.
Yeah, leave me here, standing in the shade,
Hiding from the shadow she casts over me.
Let me sink down into the darkness of this sea,
And vanish from your eyes.
But I’ll still be right here,
Sitting underneath this tree,
With its withered dying leaves,
If you care.

Yet I found the strength to come on by,
And when I found you, you sat and cried.
I stood in silence as you sat and tried
To somehow apologize.
But it was too late and the damage was done.
You had my heart, but she had yours even then,
And you still wanted her back again
With you.
And we were both shocked by what I said right then.
I told you that if you loved her, then go for it,
But if she broke your heart I’d kick her a** so hard she’s never sit
Again. And I said,

Fly, fly, fly, fly, fly away
And leave me here, stranded on the ground.
I guess I lost what she just found
In you.
So fly towards the sun you seek,
Shining brighter than I ever could.
Go back to her like I always knew you would
In time.
Yeah, leave me here, standing in the shade,
Hiding from the shadow she casts over me.
Let me sink down into the darkness of this sea,
And vanish from your eyes.
But I’ll still be right here,
Sitting underneath this tree,
With its withered dying leaves,
If you care.

I too used to dream of the sky,
But when I had you I didn’t need those dreams to get me by.
So drop my heart before you fly
Up too high.
Yeah, let it shatter on the ground.
You were the one that made my world go round.
I’m crying inside but you’ll never hear a sound
Come from me.
Yeah, I bid you to leave and take your starry eyes,
Disappear up into the sky,
I’ll fake a smile for you, but my words can’t lie.
It breaks my heart.

So Fly, fly, fly, fly, fly away
And leave me here, stranded on the ground.
I guess I lost what she just found
In you.
So fly towards the sun you seek,
Shining brighter than I ever could.
Go back to her like I always knew you would
In time.
Yeah, leave me here, standing in the shade,
Hiding from the shadow she casts over me.
Let me sink down into the darkness of this sea,
And vanish from your eyes.
But I’ll still be right here,
Sitting underneath this tree,
With its withered dying leaves,
If you care.

So leap off the branch above my head,
And just like the mighty eagle of the skies,
Forget the one that heard your cries,
And with your eyes gazing past the clouds,



Fly, fly, fly, fly, fly away
And leave me here, stranded on the ground.
I guess I lost what she just found
In you.
So fly towards the sun you seek,
Shining brighter than I ever could.
Go back to her like I always knew you would
In time.
Yeah, leave me here, standing in the shade,
Hiding from the shadow she casts over me.
Let me sink down into the darkness of this sea,
And vanish from your eyes.
But I’ll still be right here,
Sitting underneath this tree,
With its withered dying leaves,
If you care.
When you laughed the world lit up,
And whenever you were feeling down,
I dropped everything and came around
To make you smile.
