365 Days of Music: Day 236

(Dedicated to Nikki)

It makes sense that it should happen this way
That the sky should break
And the earth should shake
As if to say:
Sure it all matters but in such an unimportant
way
As if to say, hey

Fly away
Sweet bird of prey
Fly, fly away
Nothing can stand in your way
Sweet bird
If you knew the words
I know that you’d say fly
Fly away

It makes sense that it should hurt in this way
That my heart should break
And my hands should shake
As if to say:
Sure it don’t matter except in the most important
way
As if to say:
Hey, fly away
Sweet bird of prey
Fly, fly away
I won’t stand in your way
Sweet bird
If you knew the words I know that you’d say
Fly, fly away

It makes sense that it should feel this way
That you slowly fade
And yet still remain
As if to say:
Everything matters in such an invisible way
As if to say:
It’s ok
Fly Away
