Listen to a Sample of It Flies
rosebud

patsy cline

fool that i was

i'm gonna hold
you to that

dreaming of 
casablanca

worn around
the edges

last love song 
 it flies


a tree grows
in brooklyn

over & over & over

marlene

o.k. you win,
i give up
(you're right,
i'm gone) 

you are

it can start as fear of the unknown 
especially when we spend our time alone 
but love stood in the doorway that night 
like a wild bird poised before flight 

it flies 
it flies 
it soars over burning skies 
it dives 
and sails 
and its spirit never fails 

it's not the way you thought that it would be 
yet everything's in focus and you're free 
so you watch the black tipped feathers of the bird 
and you never have to say a word 

it flies 
it flies 
it soars over burning skies 
it dives 
and sails 
and its spirit never fails 

everything you dreamed of doing 
suddenly you can 
everything except to understand... 
how the snow goose came to find your home 
and why you feel so blest at times 
at times so all alone 

it flies 
it flies 
it soars over burning skies 
it dives 
and sails 
and its spirit never fails 

it wails 
and cries 
but its spirit never dies
