lyrics

To Fly

Take care not to tread too much upon the grass
Or touch the flowers growing by the concrete path
It's texture to all this metal and the glass
Swimming in the air that we see and breathe
Faces pass me, drawn and unaware
More and more my spirit wants to

Fly, over the trees
To the mountains and the streams
To taste the crystal breeze
To leave all behind and fly

Imitation ferns drape from the balustrade
Over plastic pictures of a river so displaced
It’s a poor escape for a heart that is dismayed
With the everyday push of "something more"
The faces pass me, drawn and unaware
More and more my spirit wants to
Like the clouds I want to

Fly, over the trees
To the mountains and the streams
To taste the crystal breeze
To leave all behind and fly

You tell me it's not the way
To turn my back on this avid age
To open up this cage and

Fly, over the trees
To the mountains and the streams
To share the crystal breeze
To leave all behind and fly
