"Fly" as written by Stephen Daniel Mason, Charlie Lowell, Dan Haseltine and Matt Odmark....
Be still let your hand melt into mine.
The part of me that breathes when you breathe is losing time.
I can't find the words to say I'll never say goodbye.

I'll fly with you through the night so you know I'm not letting go.
I'm not letting go.
My tears like rain fill up the sky.
Oh my love I'm not letting go, I won't let you go.

I saw the host of silent angels waiting on their own.
Knowing that all the promises of faith come alive when you see home.
Hold still and let your hand melt into mine.

I'll fly with you through the night so you know I'm not letting go.
I'm not letting go.
My tears like rain fill up the sky.
Oh my love I'm not letting go, I won't let you go.

Shed your heart and your breath and your pain and fly.
Now you're alive.

I'll fly with you through the night so you know I'm not letting go.
I'm not letting go.
Tears like rain fill up the sky.
Oh my love I'm not letting go, I won't let you go.
I'm not letting go, I won't let you go.

    General CommentI'd really love to hear someone's thoughts on this one. I can see a lot of meanings behind this one. To me it kind of sounds like they're singing about letting go-as in the kind of letting go that takes place at death.

    General CommentI was at the jars of clay/jennifer knapp concert this month- the song was written about some friends who were getting married. Don't remember exactly, but right after getting engaged the woman was diagnosed with cancer. They got married and spent all 3 months of their marraige with her in the hospital and him by her side. I think the song was about their incredible love and their hope of being together in heaven, and how her memory wouldn't be lost.
    Thought that was an amazing story- talk about committment:-)

    General CommentIt's about how the husband "won't let her go" because he won't ever give up and he'll be with her in heaven someday.

    When he sees the angels he sees that all the promises of their faith, that they would live eternally in heaven, have become real.

    "shed your heart and your breath and your pain and fly"
    this is my favorite part, because it talks about how she is letting go of all the burdens of this life on earth and flying. Now she is truly alive, as alive as she could ever be.

    General CommentI know it might mean something else, but i have a really close relationship with this friend of mine and i'm always finding songs that relate to his and my walk together and when i go through hard times i can easily see him singing this song to me. It gives a hope for a better tomorrow, like there is a light at the end of the tunnel. the last stanza is just a glimpse into the future. Its a beautiful song and i love it. Where i'm right or not is besides the point, its just how i feel about the song. ha
