There's a time for feelin' as good as we can The time is now, and there's no stoppin' us There's a time for livin' as high as we can Behind us you will only see our dust
You know we're havin' good days And we hope they're gonna last Our future still looks brighter than our past We feel no need to worry No reason to be sad Our mem'ries remind us, maybe road life's not so bad
Just keep smilin', move onward ev'ry day And try to keep our thoughts away from home We're trav'lin' around, no time to settle down And satisfy our wanderlust to roam
Well from sea to shining sea, and a hundred points between Still we go on diggin' ev'ry show The cities in the land all extend a welcome hand Till morning when it's time for us to go

Larry from Ft. Pierce, FlI was 7 when this album came out and about 8 when I first heard it being played over and over again by a 9-year old buddy of mine (and his 14 and 17-year old brothers). We grew up way out in the country in southern CA, and radio reception wasn't too great out there back then. RUSH had a huge impact on my views of how rock should sound if written and recorded with any sense of insight and foresight on what was being released to the public. "Fly By Night" is a musical masterpiece. It's wide variation of songs from the newly emerging powerhouse had a both grit and prose/poetry interwoven in the music: songs like "Making Memories" speak of the pressures roadlife had on young traveling musicians, while "Rivendell" was an interpretation of a piece of Tolkien's masterpiece, "The Lord of the Rings." They have woven their poetic prose into some of the greatest musical masterpieces of all time--regardless of musical genre.
I have been a fan from my earliest years and will remain so until my final days. Thanks, RUSH, for providing me with the portal through which I can "look outside of the box" and better interpret the experiences of life and the world around me.
Tom from Highland, NyIf you listen close there are two acoustic guitars playing the intro. The second guitar comes in a couple seconds later.
Joe from West Boylston, MaThe lyrics to most of Rush's songs are written by Peart, not "all the songs". The music is almost always written by Lifeson and Lee.
Steven from West Carrollton, OhYeah... love the acoustic.
Michael from Charlestown, RiExcellent song, by an amazing band.
