Fly Me Away

~~For Ben~~

VERSE 1:

Cold toast sits untouched on my breakfast plate

Don’t know how many hours have passed

‘Cause a November sky doesn’t mark much time

Ever somber and gray through the glass

Raindrops stream slowly down the windowpane

Trickling in time with my tears

I know that he had to go into that light

But since then there’s been nothing but darkness here

 

CHORUS:

Fly me away on wings of silver

Set my soul soaring up to those sparkling Gates

Let me peek through the keyhole and see the love in his eyes

Oh, Lord, I know I can’t stay

Then take me back someplace where life is kinder

And the sunshine kisses my face

Til I can come home when the winter is over

In the meantime, just fly me away

 

VERSE 2:

Branches stretch bare on the mulberry tree

A black and white still life on canvas

There was a time I could see the beauty there

But my vision’s been clouded with sadness

Through that window, nothing moves or moves me

‘Til a flock of geese breaks my stare

It looks like God himself has loosed an arrow

Aimed to lift me on a wing and a prayer

 

CHORUS:

Fly me away on wings of silver

Set my soul soaring up to those sparkling Gates

Let me peek through the keyhole and see the love in his eyes

Oh, Lord, I know I can’t stay

Then take me back someplace where life is kinder

And the sunshine kisses my face

‘Til I can come home when the winter is over

In the meantime, just fly me away

 

BRIDGE:

When it’s my turn to take that final flight

I know you’ll guide me through the light

To walk by your side through those Heavenly gates

Forever warm in a blanket of Grace

 

CHORUS:

Fly me away on wings of silver

Set my soul soaring up to those sparkling Gates

No need to peek through the keyhole to see the love in Your eyes

Oh, Lord, I’ve come home to stay

Your love brought me back here where life is kinder

And Your Son’s light kisses my face

The one I love waits here, and winter is over

No need to fly ‘cause You’ve shown me the way

And everything’s gonna be OK now

No, there’s no need to fly me away
