"Falling or Flying" as written by and Grace Potter....
We got lost again
Drove to the end of the road
And a red-faced man
Taught us to do what we're told

And on the 23rd night
Things aint bad but things aint right

Are we falling or flying
Are we falling or flying
Are we living or dying
I guess we'll never know

The air's so heavy
It could drown a butterfly
If it flew too high
And I get the feeling
That the truck driver aint shy
Cuz he's lookin at me but nowhere near my eyes

And on the 35th morning
Things aint good but things aint boring, no

Are we falling or flying
Are we falling or flying
Are we living or dying
I guess we'll never know

Striking rock but hitting gold

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

Sometimes it's hard to tell
If there's a life behind this song (?)
But I know tomorrow
Today won't feel so alone, no

Cuz on the 42nd night
The room was dark but the stage was bright

Are we falling or flying
Are we falling or flying
Are we living
Are we dying
Cuz my friend, this too will pass
So play every show
Like it's your last

    General CommentClassic. She approaches it as an old soul, wise beyond her years and living in a decade past her true era.

    Lyric Correction"Striking right OR hitting gold"
    AND "Sometimes it's hard to tell if there's a life behind A song/But I know tomorrow, today won't feel so LONG" AND "This too shall pass"

    Sorry, I don't mean to be picky but just figured you should know.
