  • Boy, when I left you, you were young
    I was gone, but not my love
    You were clearly meant for more
    Than a life lost in the war

    I want you to be happy
    Free to run, get dizzy on caffeine
    Funny friends that make you laugh
    And maybe you're just a little bit dappy

    Fly
    Feel your mother at your side
    Don't you know you got my eyes
    I'll make you fly
    You'll be happy all the time
    I know you can make it right

    Boy, now your life is back-to-front
    But you'll see that's not for long
    'Cause I know you'll feel the ghost
    Of some memories so warm

    Boy, I want you to be happy
    Free to run, get dizzy on caffeine
    Funny friends that make you laugh
    And maybe you're just a little bit dappy

    Fly
    Feel your mother at your side
    Don't you know you got my eyes
    I'll make you fly
    You'll be happy all the time
    I know you can make it right

    Boy, I want you to be happy
    Free to run, get dizzy on caffeine
    Funny friends that make you laugh
    And maybe you're just a little bit dappy

    Fly
    Feel your mother at your side
    Don't you know you got my eyes
    I'll make you fly
    You'll be happy all the time
    I know you can make it right
    I'll make you

    Boy, I want you to be happy
    Free to run, get dizzy on caffeine
    Funny friends that make you laugh
    And maybe you're just a little bit Writer/s: David Algernon Bayley
