Some People Fly

  • Used to be a time
    We held the world.
    Wrapped 'round our finger tips
    Laughing at what others missed. Someday, yesterday
    The magic we felt went away.
    Grow up somebody said tell me where it's gone
    So I can go find it now. I can't live your way.
    Go ahead without me.
    I'll find my own way

    Some people fly and some of us worry about touching
    The sun with wings. I know if I try I'll get where I'm going,
    Keeping my eyes on the sky.

    The box you live within is strong and it's up to you
    To see beyond the comfort zone you've grown to love.
    There's more to life than that. The expectations
    That you hold will keep you down and make you old
    If you can't see what I'm trying to say, maybe you just
    Need to wear my shoes for awhile. I can't live your way.
    Go ahead without me.
    I'll find my own way

    Some people fly and some of us worry
    I'd risk it all to have wings.
    I know if I try I'll get where I'm going,
    Keeping my eyes on the sky.

    While you sit there and think about it, there's another
    Unfolding their wings. I can tell you what it's like, but,
    Until you try, you'll never see what I mean.

    Some people fly and some of us worry
    I'll touch the sky with my wings.
    I know if I try I'll get where I'm going,
    Keeping my eyes on the sky.
    Keeping my eyes, keeping my eyes on the sky. Publisher: TRI-RYCHE CORPORATION DBA QUEENSRYCHE PUBLISHING COMPANY
