Fly Away

I'm far from home for too long now
And with time you learn
Being proud is so useless
The word is ephemeral
 
And what is the importance of fears
If time makes them irrelevant?
Life is just a rehearsal of an eternal life
In this life I don't get anything, my emptiness is as big as me
 
I'd just want to fly away, leave everything behind
I'd just want to fly away, leave everything behind
 
I miss what I've never seen
I yearn for what I never felt
Why did they stop talking about heavens?
We're thinking a lot about this life down here
 
You didn't give me wings because you knew
That I wouldn't stay down here
After I knew everything up high
I wouldn't ever look back to the Earth
 
I'd just want to fly away, leave everything behind
I'd just want to fly away, leave everything behind
 
Only you know how to care for me so much
Only you will ever love me so much
Only you know how to care for me so much
Only you will ever love me so much
 
Angels, sing louder, so my soul can hear
It came from the sky and misses it so much that it wants to come back
Angels, sing louder, so my soul can hear
It came from the sky and misses it so much that it wants to come back
 
It wants to come back, it wants to come back, it wants to come back, it wants to come back
It wants to fly away, it wants to fly away, it wants to fly away, it wants to fly away
It wants to come back, it wants to come back, it wants to come back, it wants to come back
It wants to fly away, it wants to fly away, it wants to fly away, it wants to come back

Author's comments:

It seems that this song is being directioned to God and heavenly things - that's why there are so many references to things 'down there' (the Earth and her mundane life) and 'up there' (Heavens and her celestial life).
