Verse:

Do you remember when you and I were just kids?

We flew around on kites high above all our sins.

But now my mind is much too heavy to ascend.

I’m stuck upon the Earth below all of my friends.

 

And they’re singin’…

 

Chorus: 

Come fly away with us, we can make you lighter.

Come fly away with us, you’re still the same fighter.

Come fly away with us, we can make you lighter.

Come fly away with us, you’re still the same fighter.

 

Bridge:

Come fly away

Come fly away


This is my first attempt at song lyrics. I play the ukulele for fun and recently became inspired to try writing lyrics for some of the chord progressions I find while messing around. Although this is far from being considered a “complete” song, I found myself not wanting to force much more into it. It was rather nice just putting music to some of my words and stumbling through a creative medium I’ve always admired but never tried.

If anyone cares to know the chords and strum pattern: 

Verse: Em, G, Am, C

Chorus: F, Am, C, C

Strum Pattern: DD UU DU
