"One Day I'll Fly Away" as written by Will Jennings and Joe Sample....
I follow the night
Can't stand the light

When will I begin?
To live again?

One day I'll fly away
Leave all this to yesterday
What more could your love do for me
When will love be through with me
Why live life from dream to dream
And dread the day when dreaming ends

One day I'll fly away!
Leave all this to yesterday!
Why live life from dream to dream!?
And dreamt the day when dreaming ends

One day I'll fly away
Fly fly away

    General CommentI think it means exactly what she says, one day I'll get the hell out of here. In the movie, she doesn't, but maybe some of us can.

    General CommentI love this song so much, especially the Tony Phillips Remix.
    Especially the lyrics:
    "Why live life from dream to dream.
    And dread the day when dreaming ends."
    It's so true, but so cynical. And even though she's asking why she should bother to dream and hope, this song is really only *about* her dreaming to get away.
