Fly Like A Bird

Album: The Emancipation Of Mimi (2005)
  • Weeping may endure for a night
    But joy comes in the morning
    Trust Him

    Somehow I know that
    There's a place up above
    With no more hurt and struggling
    Free of all atrocities and suffering
    Because I feel the unconditional love
    From one who cares enough for me
    To erase all my burdens
    And let me be free to

    Fly like a bird
    Take to the sky
    I need you now, Lord
    Carry me high
    Don't let the world break me tonight
    I need the strength of you by my side
    Sometimes this life can be so cold
    I pray you'll come and carry me home

    Can we recover?
    Will the world ever be
    A place of peace and harmony
    With no war and with no brutality?
    If we loved each other
    We would find victory
    But in this harsh reality
    Sometimes I'm so despondent
    That I feel the need to

    Fly like a bird
    Take to the sky
    I need you now, Lord
    Carry me high
    Don't let the world break me tonight
    I need the strength of you by my side
    Sometimes this life can be so cold
    I pray you'll come and carry me home

    Keep your head to the sky
    With God's love you'll survive
    Fly like a bird
    Take to the sky
    I need you now, Lord
    Carry me high
    Don't let the world break me tonight
    I need the strength of You by my side

    Sometimes this life can be so cold
    I pray You'll come and carry me home
    Carry me higher, higher, higher
    Carry me higher, higher, higher
    Carry me home
    Higher, Jesus
    Carry me higher, Lord Writer/s: Mariah Carey, James Quenton Wright
