Fly

Fly
Music: Grace McDunnough
Lyrics: Salome Strangelove

I can see the sunset just melting in your eyes
The cascade into masquerade
Where your heart lives and dies
It pulls you like the ocean
And the waters always win
They do run deeper
Where you will not let me in
Let me in

You think you have to push and rattle at the cage
But I am not afraid to stand the storm you need to rage
I know that you are frightened the price of love runs high
You think you’re falling
But I’ve seen the way you fly
The way you fly

I tell you right now that I will persevere
When our chemistry’s just history
I’ll still be standing here
Go ahead and get it out, baby
Come on, do your worst
It won’t be the last time
We know it’s not the first

You think you have to scream to let yourself be heard
And I am not afraid to suffer every single word
I know that you are frightened by the omens in the sky
You think you’re falling
But I’ve seen the way you fly

The past is not an easy place, it can leave you feeling used
We all get a little broken, we all get a little bruised
But we don’t need permission — forget about taboo
The world can deal with it; I’m not letting go of you
Not letting go

You think you have to cry and drown yourself in blame
And I am not afraid, for I have often done the same
I know that you are frightened you don’t know the reasons why
You think you’re falling
But, I have seen you fly
I have seen the way you fly
