  • I tried to drink it away
    I tried to put one in the air
    I tried to dance it away
    I tried to change it with my hair

    I ran my credit card up
    Thought a new dress make it better
    I tried to work it away
    But that just made me even sadder
    I tried to keep myself busy
    I ran around circles
    Think I made myself dizzy
    I slept it away, I sexed it away
    I read it away

    Away, away, away, away, away, away
    Away, away, away, away, away

    Well it's like cranes in the sky
    Sometimes I don't wanna feel those metal clouds
    Yeah it's like cranes in the sky
    Sometimes I don't wanna feel those metal clouds

    I tried to run it away
    Thought then my head be feeling clearer
    I traveled 70 states
    Thought moving around make me feel better

    I tried to let go my lover
    Thought if I was alone then maybe I could recover
    To write it away or cry it away (don't you cry baby)

    Away, away, away, away, away, away
    Away, away, away, away, away

    But it's like cranes in the sky
    Sometimes I don't wanna feel those metal clouds
    Yeah it's like cranes in the sky
    Sometimes I don't wanna feel those metal clouds

    Away, away, away, away, away, away Writer/s: Solange Knowles, Troy Johnson, Raphael Saadiq
