"Fly Away" as written by and Claudio/mazzella Calzolari....
"When will you be home?" she asks
As we watch the planes take off
We both know we have no clear answer to where my dreams may lead
She's watched me as I crawled and stumbled
As a child, she was my world
And now to let me go, I know she bleeds
And yet she says to me

You can fly so high
Keep your gaze upon the sky
I'll be prayin' every step along the way
Even though it breaks my heart to know we'll be so far apart
I love you too much to make you stay
Baby fly away

Autumn leaves fell into spring time and
Silver-painted hair
Daddy called one evening saying
"We need you. Please come back"
When I saw her laying in her bed
Fragile as a child
Pale just like an angel taking flight
I held her as I cried

You can fly so high
Keep your gaze upon the sky
I'll be prayin' every step along the way
Even though it breaks my heart to know we'll be so far apart
I love you too much to make you stay
Baby fly away
Oh...
I love you too much to make you stay
Baby fly away

    General CommentThis is just such a nice, nice song. It's so sad and it feels so... real. It feels as if you can actually hear Corrinne having a conversation with the child, and it's so clever that the chorus has 2 meanings - one where the child reassures the mum and one where the mum bids goodbye to the child.. I love this song.

    Great stuff.

    General CommentI love the chorus part wherein the mother and child changed point of views. During the first chorus, the mom was the one saying the chorus but in the last part, it's the child who's saying the chorus part. :(

    this song made me cry.
