i'm thinking i'll fly away
or take a long drive
and i won't stop
until i reach the other side
get lost within myself
in the northern sky, yeah

so save tonight
but tomorrow you won't be alright
so i'll take off tonight
risk a fall
say goodbye
goodbye

when i fall, don't forget me
when i fall, don't forget me
when i fall, don't forget me
when i fall, don't forget me

if i stay here, i'll be dying forever
if i stay here, i'll be dying forever

i'm not scared to fly
i just need golden wings
the kind that'll burn in the sky
knock the stars down to die?

when i fall, don't forget me
when i fall, don't forget me
when i fall, don't forget me
when i fall, don't forget me

if i stay here, i'll be dying forever
if i stay here, i'll be dying forever

    General Commentyeah kaleidoscopexeyes i think got it. Wicked good song tho its on the second northstar demo [6 songs] with nick singing it, and i think the original singer on bass? It was the first demo as a 4 piece then next came i think one more demo with all the is this thing loaded songs on it, then the actual cd. BUt this is totally a killer song, definately my fave out of the early stuff im hoping they rerecord it too.
