"How It Feels to Fly" as written by Alicia Augello-cook and Kerry Brothers Jr.....
Have you ever felt so strong
That may you feel weak
Long days
Long nights
And you just can't sleep

Have you ever been so sure
That gave you cold feet
That felt all bare
And can feel your heart beat

I never known this feeling never
Now I hope it stays and last forever
I am riding high
I don't want come down
But wings don't here me out
If I can touch the sky
I risk to fall just to know how it feels to fly

(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Say yeah yeah yeah yeah
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Say yeah yeah yeah yeah
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Yeah

Have you ever felt so lost
But didn't know until you were found
Looking everywhere
What you finally see know

In the room full of people
Feel like no one's around
Got your head in the clouds
And feet are off the ground

Say I never knew this feeling, never
Now I hope it stays and last forever
I am riding high
I don't want to come down
But wings don't hear me out
If I can touch the sky
I risk to fall just to know how it feels to fly

(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Say yeah yeah yeah yeah
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Say yeah yeah yeah yeah
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
We get to go

(Higher)
Higher
Higher
Higher
Higher

I am riding high
Don't want to come down
Hope my wings don't fail me now
If I can touch the sky
I'd risk to fall just to know how it feels to fly

I am riding high
Don't want to come down
But wings don't hear me out
If I can touch the sky
I'd risk to fall just to know how it feels to fly

(Yeah) yeah (Yeah) yeah (Yeah) yeah (Yeah) yeah (Yeah) yeah
(Yeah) yeah (Yeah) yeah (Yeah) yeah (Yeah) yeah (Yeah) yeah

    General CommentWowwww...I can't believe there is no comment yet.

    Personally I think it's one of the best songs off the new album.. actually, one of the best of Alicia Keys.

    So inspirational and uplifting.

    This song helps me concentrate on the positive things in my life, not the negative things.

    General Commenti totally agree. This is probably my favourite off the new album "In a room full of people, You feel like no one's around Gotcha head in the clouds and your feet are off the ground" this is my favourite bit. I can completely relate to this!

    My InterpretationI too am surprised at how little comments there are on such a beautiful song.

    "Have you ever felt so strong,
    That it made you feel weak?"
    ^I love how this appears to be contradictory but explains love perfectly - it's the only thing you can feel so strongly that it makes you weak and dependent.

    "Have you ever felt so lost,
    But didn't know 'til you were found"
    ^Has anyone ever found you and you wondered how you ever lived without them? You don't ever consider there is anything to fix (because you have become accustomed) until they come in and mend it.

    "In a room full of people,
    You feel like no one's around"
    ^Yes. Caught up in your own thoughts and know no-one else could possibly understand and you could never explain.
