Flying Away 

 

Standing on this porch next to me,

Staring out at this big, big world.

Now I can hardly believe,

This young woman is my baby girl,

Now she’s worrying about how crazy this world seems,

Trying to figure out how to keep all her dreams from

 

Flying away,

Out of reach and so far away.

So she pulls them near,

To hold them here,

And she tries to find her fears

And send them flying away.

 

Standing on this porch where she played,

Her hair so tangled, her eyes so clear.

Showing us the little things she made.

Simple treasures we’ll keep through the years

That seem to fly away like birds in the wind.

I try to hold on to them, but then they begin to go

 

Flying away,

Out of reach and so far away.

So I pull them near,

To hold them here,

And I try to find my fears

And send them flying away.

 

I know my greatest role is to

Keep them safe and give them room to grow.

Just so when they have their own,

They’ll keep them safe and help them grow.

I know it’s time to let her go, but…

 

Standing on this porch saying goodby,

Your bags are packed, you’re ready to leave.

So much excitement in your eyes,

Now I hope you can truly believe,

We’ll always be there to help you reach for your star,

But no matter what, we’ll love you just as you are, as you go

 

Flying away,

Out of reach and so far away.

So we pull you near, to hold you here,

And we try to find our fears

And send them flying away.

So we pull them near, as if to hold them here,

And we try to find our fears

And send them flying away.

We send them flying away.
