"Fly Away From Here" as written by and Marti/chapman Frederiksen....
Looking for a way
Maybe now, maybe in a day
Cause nothing gonna change
If we stay around here

We gotta do what it takes
Cause it's all in our hands
We all make mistakes
But it's never too late to start again

Take another breath
And say another prayer

And fly away from here
Anywhere, I don't care
We'll just fly away from here
Our hopes and dreams
Are out there somewhere

We won't let them pass us by
We'll just fly

If this life, gets any harder now
Don't ever mind, you got me by your side
And any time you want
We can catch a train and find a better place
Cause we won't let nothing or no one keep getting us down

Maybe you and I
Should pack our bags and say goodbye

And fly away from here
Anywhere, I don't care
We'll just fly away from here
Our hopes and dreams
Are out there somewhere

We won't let times pass us by
We'll just fly

Do you see a bluer sky now
You could have a better life now
Open your eyes
No one here can ever stop us
They can try but we won't let them
No way

    General CommentYou know out of all of Aerosmith's newer songs (which i am not as big a fan of) I think this song is by far the best. It has such a great message. In this troubled world that we live in wouldn't it be so wonderful to just get away from it all. I really love the line

    "Maybe you and I could pack out bags and hit the sky"

    This song sort of takes you to a fantasy place while you listen to it and for a moment you are free from all the problems in todays world. It's like paradise. Such a beautiful song it is. I think its important to just forget about the bad stuff sometimes and just "fly away from here."

    General Commenti think this song means taking the final plunge...either its love or leaving home...maybe even its saying like...how he breaks up with a girl and then he meets a new girl ..and he has to learn to fly again...because it says we all make mistakes..but...i like this song aloooot

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me, because I had to hastily leave my home and move somewhere else, and where I came, I made a lot of my dreams come true, and I feel this represents some of my dreams that I haven't fulfilled yet.

    General CommentI agree u2elevation. This song came out when I was just heading into some kind of depression in 2001, and it would move me and break me in tears. It made me feel that it was ok to feel down "we all make mistakes", and gave me hope that "it's never too late" to get better...It still does...Very touching, moving, a song to remember...

    General CommentThe lyrics are so simple...straight to the point. You know, that's what I love about Aerosmith. Tyler says exactly what he means and though it might be the plainest clichest thing ever, when it slurs for Steven's lips...there's nothing that can compare. I don't care what people say about Steven's singing--the boy's got passion written all over him.

    General CommentThis is my favorite Aerosmith song right along with Kiss Your Pass Goodbye. The video is amazing as well. I can relate with the lyrics that say to pack your bags and hit the sky. I think everyone wishes they could do that at one point in their life.
