"ONLY WAY TO FLY"

Verse 1
When worldly success has been so overrated,
And just getting by seems so complicated,
Your soul feels like it's drained, & dehydrated
By what you've seen, & what you've been through,
Seems it's sucking life right out of you,

And somehow you know this time you won't be saved
By plans you laid, or the money you made,
What you really need's a listening ear that doesn't tire,
A real Friend with the power of love to lift you higher.

Chorus 1
You've been looking for that love far & wide - you wanna get it,
But first it's got to grow from inside. You've got to let it
Sink down deep until, 'til it's part of you,
And You'll be at peace 'cause you will, you'll know I love you,
And that's the only way to fly above it all.

Verse 2
The forest from way up here, it looks so pretty,
Away from a few trees of regret & self pity.
A golden sun gives gray clouds that silver lining,
And a way out from that lonely fate to which you were resigning.

A soaring eagle doesn't fret how it's gonna get across a river;
So put trust in Me, Who always does & will deliver,
And you'll laugh when you feel that heavy load get light as a feather,
And we'll fight this fight & enjoy this flight together!

Chorus 2
You've been looking for that love far & wide - you wanna get it,
But first it's got to grow from inside. You've got to let it
Sink down deep until, 'til it's part of you,
And You'll be at peace 'cause you will, you'll know I love you,
And that's the only way to fly above it all.

Fly! Fly! Fly!

Chorus 3
You've been looking for that love far & wide - you wanna get it,
But first it's got to grow from inside. You've got to let it
Sink down deep until, 'til it's part of you,
And You'll be at peace 'cause you will, you'll know I love you,
And that's the only way to fl-y.

Chorus 4
You wanna get it,
But you've got to let it.
I am part of you.
Yeah, you'll know I love you.
Now you and I can just fly.
Fly! You'll know I love you.
Now that's the only way to fly.


Fly!
