Flying



I wrote this song for my friend's son.  He turned 16 on the 16th and has been bravely battling cancer for years.  He likes super heroes (I haven't met too many boys that don't).  Most people love to occasionally escape into their imagination. You can go anywhere, and do anything in your imagination! This song is a mixture of both.  You can listen to me singing the finger picking version if you click here.  For the fun version where Tia and Kayli sing with me, and Connor does the video work click birthday video.  The words are below.


FLYING
(Q's Song)

The sun is shining in the sky
And lots of friends are walking by
Music's floating in the air
But I am far away
Flying through the sky today

Lightning flashes when I land
Wearing armor I take off again
Rockets that I shoot make rain
They will not cause you pain
They'll bring earth alive again.

I love flying
When the sun is shining
And when the night comes
I will fly
Way up to the moon

The colors are now bright and fun
From a tree I see everyone
Arrows arc into the sky
And rainbows they appear
Chasing out all doubt and fear

Running so fast no one can see
But good things follow after me
Bad things get pushed far away
As I go on my way
Running right through walls today

I love flying
When the sun is shining
And when the night comes
I will fly
Way up to the moon

I hear a sound that brings me home
I stop flying around alone
I lower the shield I hold
And all is safe and sound
Landing back on solid ground

But someday I'll take off again
Perhaps next time I'll take a friend
We'll take off into the air
And fly up toward the sun
To do good for everyone

I love flying
When the sun is shining
And when the night comes
I will fly
Way up to the moon

I love flying
When the sun is shining
And when the night comes
I will fly
Way up to the moon

I haven't quite found the words to tell you what this song has meant to us. It's really beautiful and so awesome, just like you. Thank you for writing a whole song for my son. It's extraordinary.
