Urban clutter, hands are dirty,
life so stressful, barely thirty.
Boss-man screaming, baby crying,
head is aching, feel like dying.


(Chorus)

Fly away, (fly away), escape this reality.
High away, (high away), need some tranquility.
Fly away, (fly away), floating so peacefully.
Far away, (far away), soothing serenity.


Stuck in traffic, horns are honking,
smog around me, people choking.
Husband cheating, tears are falling,
gaze above me, moon is calling.


Fly away, (fly away), escape this reality.
High away, (high away), need some tranquility.
Fly away, (fly away), floating so peacefully.
Far away, (far away), soothing serenity.


Marriage over, single momma,
congress fighting, poor Obama.
Crime increasing, doors are locking,
man behind me, think he's stalking.


Fly away, (fly away), escape this reality.
High away, (high away), need some tranquility.
Fly away, (fly away), floating so peacefully.
Far away, (far away), soothing serenity.

Fly away, (fly away), far from this world below.
High away, (high away), not sure how far I'll go.
Fly away, (fly away), heading straight for the sun.
Far away, (far away), goodbye to everyone.
the desire for lightness of being
