Boarding planes and tickets
Suits and ties.
Ears filled watching life go by.
Life goes by.
Ramps and runways calling all us close
Roll the dice and take a chance.
Take a chance.

Fly away boy.
Fly away, dear boy.
Fly away boy, say goodbye.
Fly, Fly, Fly.

Taste the tears you're crying
They just proved you have nothing
left to lose, just you.

Fly away, boy.
Fly away, dear boy.
Fly away, boy, say goodbye.

I'm stuck here, feet nailed down
What if waiting brings on a better crowd?
Handle right here, body empty
What if hearts and hurting isn't all it's meant to be
And I'm caught, behind three-story glass
Watching planes and taxis.
And after you leave, they told me nothing's for free
What if there is no more to this life
Than me?

Fly away boy.
Fly away, dear boy.
Fly away boy, say goodbye.

I got up and held by seatbelt signs
Always lived outside the lines.
These lines.
