Fly Away by Corrine May
When will you be home?” she asks
as we watch the planes take off
We both know we have no clear answer
to where my dreams may lead
She’s watched me as I crawled and stumbled
As a child, she was my world
And now to let me go, I know she bleeds
and yet she says to me

You can fly so high
Keep your gaze upon the sky
I’ll be praying every step along the way
Even though it breaks my heart to know we’ll be so far apart
I love you too much to make you stay
Baby fly away

Autumn leaves fell into spring time and
Silver-painted hair
Daddy called one evening saying
“We need you. Please come back”
When I saw her laying in her bed
Fragile as a child
Pale just like an angel taking flight
I held her as I cried

You can fly so high
Keep your gaze upon the sky
I’ll be praying every step along the way
Even though it breaks my heart to know we’ll be so far apart
I love you too much to make you stay
Baby fly away

i’m already there by lonestar

He called her on the road
From a lonely cold hotel room.
Just to hear her say I love you one more time
And when he heard the sound
Of the kids laughing in the background
He had to wipe away a tear from his eye.
A little voice came on the phone
She said, Daddy, when you coming home?
He said the first thing that came to his mind.

Chorus
I’m already there,
Take a look around.
I’m the sunshine in your hair,
I’m the shadow on the ground.
I’m the whisper in the wind,
I’m your imaginary friend.
And I know I’m in your prayers,
Oh, I’m already there.

2nd Verse
She got back on the phone
Said, I really miss you darlin’.
Don’t worry about the kids, they’ll be all right.
Wish I was in your arms,
Lyin’ right there beside you.
But I know that I’ll be in your dreams tonight.
And I’ll gently kiss your lips,
Touch you with my fingertips.
So turn out the light and close your eyes.
