Flight Song

Come along with me
On a discovery
Of a world between dream and reality
Float away with me
Make no apologies
For the song within you.

Sing of a memory
Set your soul free
To roam the earth as it
Was meant to

Sing of the love
That you won and lost
The joys; and pain you’ve paid as cost
Sing of your hopes
To find another heart
That beats a matching tune to yours.

Soar on up with me
Just a bit higher,
Let go of your hold on gravity
Behind you are the tears of the past
Ahead, endless possibilities

Let your voice ring out
Here no one can stop your ascent
You can let go of the yearning
From deep in your soul.
See? the clouds of hurt,
Are parting before you

No no, don’t hide from the light
Reach out for it.
Can’t you hear it calling to you?
You are no Icarus
You will not burn
Go on, touch the sun

Ooh, can you feel the love?
Let it pulsate about you
Breathe it all in
Now sing,
Sing your heart out
Allow this journey to heal you

There! You hear it?
That perfect harmony?
Feel those arms embracing you,
Those lips caressing yours?
No no, don’t run. Stay right there.
You are right where you are meant to be

What’s that?
No, no you don’t need to know the way back.
You’re a balloon, you have no need for the past
And look, you have someone to rise with.
There you go! Accept this reality
The other is now but a fading dream.
