lyrics

Half the tears I ever cried, I cried for you when we said goodbye
At our first goodbye, our love was new, you had my ring, and away I flew

There’s a time to stay, and a time to fly away
There’s a time to stay, and a time to fly away

We’re parents now, though I don’t know how,
we three like glue, me, her and you
I like to think I can keep you safe, but we can’t just hole up in a cave

Another surprise at the worst of times,
can we four survive, can I provide?
These questions asked, and your bags were packed

More tears in an airport for the ones I care for,
three darlings departed, one life barely started
All three ascend, but one never lands
Why did you fly away? Fly away?
Fly away? Fly away?

I need to forget because I can’t protect you
My song will remind you that someday I’ll find
This poem has told you that someday I’ll hold you

When I fly away, fly away
When I fly away, fly away
There’s a time to stay, and a time to fly away
There’s a time to stay, and a time to
