Gotta find a way
Yeah, I cant wait another day
Ain't nothing gonna change
If we stay 'round here
Gotta do what it takes
'Cause it's all in our hands
We all make mistakes
Yeah, but it's never too late
To start again, take another breath
And say another prayer

Then fly away from here
Anywhere, yeah, I don't care
We just fly away from here
Our hopes and dreams are out there somewhere
Won't let time pass us by
We'll just fly, yeah

If this life
It seems harder now
It ain't no never mind
You got me by your side
And anytime you want
Yeah, we could catch a train and find a better place
Yeah, 'cause we won't let nothing, or no-one, keep getting us down
Maybe you and I
Could pack our bags and hit the sky

Then fly away from here
Anywhere, yeah, I don't care
We just fly away from here
Our hopes and dreams are out there somewhere
Won't let time pass us by
We'll just fly

Do you see a bluer sky now
You can have a better life now
Open your eyes
'Cause no one here can ever stop us
They can try but we won't let them
No way
Maybe you and I
Could pack our bags and say goodbye

Then fly away from here
Anywhere, honey, I don't care
We just fly away from here
Our hopes and dreams are out there somewhere
Fly away from here
Yeah, anywhere
Honey, I don't, I don't, I don't
Yeah, we just fly away

    You 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."

    I think it means just letting everything drop and leaving all your troubles behind.

    i 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

    This 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.

    I 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...

    The 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.

    This 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.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
