Fly Away

By Jim Ittenbach - 2017


Verse I: 

Who is this wounded animal? 

Looks like a washed up rusted bucket of a man 

His eyes are cold 

His skin is old 

And God knows he’s seen better days 

 

Bridge: 

Hey son don’t you mock the road I ran 

I followed dreams long since past 

One day you’ll be in this place too 

Though you’ll never walk in my shoes 

 

Verse II: 

I feel a shadow over me 

The stealthy presence of ticking time 

It moves so slow 

As it takes control 

Slowly stealing my youth from me 

 

Bridge: Repeat  

 

Chorus: 

One day I’ll fly away, fly away from your view 

And one day you’ll fly away, fly away from here too 

 

Verse III: 

Who is this wounded animal 

Staring back at me, from my mirror 

His eyes are cold 

His skin is old 

And God knows he’s seen better days 

 

Bridge: Repeat  

 

Chorus: Repeat 

One day you’ll fly away, and become new
