I Fly Away - Better Than Ezra

And on the day that I was born
My mom and dad were overjoyed
They wrapped me in their arms
Took me home to meet my world
A painted room to call my own
A place where nothing could go wrong
Where they could build their borders
That I never would escape
But I don't need no one to break me out of here

I fly away, (I fly away)
When the world is burning down
I am up above the clouds
I fly away, (I fly away)
Letting go and breathing in
I float into the golden heart of love again
(I fly away, I fly away, I fly away)

As adolescence waved goobye
I searched the world behind my eyes
A permanent oasis
In the middle of a war
Now mom is taking happy pills
And dad is drowning in his bills
My sister went to rehab
For the third time in a year
But I don't need to pill to help me disappear

I fly away, (I fly away)
When the world is burning down
I am up above the clouds
I fly away, (I fly away)
Letting go and breathing in
I float into the golden heart of love again

And if you believe I'm less than I was meant to be
Don't be deceived, I'm hoping I was meant to be
Tell me you're wrong

And when you see the silent one
Know I am more than skin and bone
I am spirit, I am sound
I am floating off the ground
The ground, the ground
To fly along...

I fly away, (I fly away)
When the world is burning down
I am up above the clouds
I fly away, (I fly away)
Letting go and breathing in
I float into the golden heart of love again
I fly away
(Hey ma mama, away, oh...)
Letting go and breathing in
I float into the golden heart of love again
I float into the golden heart of love again
(Hey ma mama, away, oh
Hey ma mama, away, oh)
