So I'll kiss the morning air and fly away
I used to hold you close, but now your picture frames
They're the closest you will ever be to me
And I rejoice at our dismissal
Like I've finally been set free
And now your pictures drift
They Drift farther
And Farther and Farther Away
And the pieces of our
Relationship become nothing more
Than curbside clutter
Than curbside clutter

So I'll kiss the morning air and fly away
Fly away from here today, today, today
And I'll kiss the morning air and fly away
Fly away from here, today

You better take a seat, yeah, stay awhile
I'm about to wear you out
And I'm not afraid to tell
You what this is all about
Now the world around me is slowly blending together
Like a wheel of colors
Are we so different you and I
Are we so different you and I
You Loved me, and I loved you not
There's the door don't let it hit you on the way out

So I'll kiss the morning air and fly away
Fly away from here today, today, today
And I'll kiss the morning air and fly away
Fly away from here, today

I got it all planned put, I'll
Drive out to the edge of your yard
And we'll rip our tear
Drenched photographs apart
And watch them drift over the rooftops of this lonely southern town

So I'll kiss the morning air and fly away
Fly away from here today, today, today
And I'll kiss the morning air and fly away
Fly away from here, today

Now I don't care, if you cry for an entire year
But by then I hope you can make your peace

But I'll kiss the morning air and fly away
Fly away from here today, today, today
And I'll kiss the morning air and fly away
Fly away from here, today

    This song is one of my favorites
    His Voice at the beginning Gives Me Chills.

    I think it's about a relationship that kind of fell through.

    General Commentsad. kind of.
    how he claims to have never loved her.
    i'm not sure if it is being said 'just because' and he really did care about her. or if he is actually telling the truth. he's glad they're over.

    General CommentShe made the relationship hell for him. Maybe she never had time for him and made him suffer, maybe she cheated, either way, she made his love deteriorate, because I do think it was there, just doesn't exist anymore thus him saying he loved her not. And so saying goodbye to her makes him feel free, that's why he's 'flying away.' I really love this song!

    General Commenti like this song... lol it's sad though... he's like "i don't care if you cry for an entire year" and he's so happy to be out of the relationship... but she must have been really annoying tom make him leave .. but he probably never loved her and now he's relieved that he doesn't have to pretend anymore...
    the acoustic version is just as good if not better!(i'm not sure which version i like better lol)
