Fly Away


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Written for a friend that couldn't make up their mind about moving out. Basically I want more freedom and to be closer to the people I love. I want to move. Then again I don't. It's hard leaving the place you grew up in. But you'll have to someday.

The one thing I need is a proper tuner for my guitar. After recording I realized it's off a bit. Enjoy it how it is for now :)

Lyrics
October 29, 2005

Do you ever feel stuck in one spot
Do you wish you could move
But you can’t cause you’re glued to the spot
The place you’ve always come home to


You know someday you’ll move away
You’ll learn the world on your own

Chorus
You will fly away
(And be free to live)
You will fly away
(live each day your way)
It’s all you
It’ll be new and exciting
When you fly away


I don’t know about you but I’m getting tired of the same ol’ place
I guess it’s alright but don’t you want something more?
Something to call your own your own home
Or hit the road and explore


You know someday you’ll move away
You’ll learn the world on your own

Chorus
You will fly away
(And be free to live)
You will fly away
(live each day your way)
It’s all you
It’ll be new and exciting
When you fly away


You think it over
I’ll think it over
Is this what you want
Are you ready
Are we ready or not

really refreshing
I like the freshness of this. Nice soft strum and excellent harmonies.
Reminds me of something Kelly Clarkson would be singing. Couldn't
really hear the problem with the tuning. Garageband 2 has a built-in
tuner that you access by clicking on the tuning fork next to the track time
info. It really works well, and I use it all the time (when I remember).

Good song
I think you have a pretty voice but you seem unsure of yourself. The song itself was wonderful and I can really appreciate the words in this song. Think about it this way, you can only get better, right?

Gutsy
It takes a lot of guts to write a song that's so specific to an activity. It really must be for your friend. You've got vocal talent and guitar talent. You've got hook talent and computer talent - everything required to make good music. Hey, I decided years ago to give up bars and write for the people I love. It's been quite a blessing, and I see that your friends are blessed, also. Who knows, maybe by following your passion for niche writing, you'll find success!

Not bad
Song writing content is good... not the best vocal I've heard from you.... a bit too low at the start?

Will look forward to a new recording :D.

Sweet little song
very sincere, I could definitely feel your concern for your friend -- it
comes through. The last line is an interesting twist & makes me wonder
what the relationship really is. I'm with Jim on the tuning thing -- I didn't
notice a problem.

Sweet little song
ummm... twist?
"Are we ready or not?"

Translation - Are we financially stable? Are our jobs secure? Are we mature enough to be on our own?

We're best friends. Done. That's all.

I have a boyfriend anyway.

Sweet little song
Nothing untoward is being suggested, sorry if I offended. It just seemed like you
put together a song about someone flying away & then included yourself. Made
me curious, is all. There's nothing in the song to suggest a gender, there's no
way for me to know the song isn't about some male friend of yours. And one
way or the other, it wouldn't make a bit of difference to me. All I have to go on
is your song, which I liked.

Sweet little song
Cool, I wasn't quite sure what you meant before. I just didn't want listeners to get the wrong idea. I really appreciate your comments. Thank-You :)

I included myself in the song because my friend and I are planning on becoming room mates.

lovely song
I agree that it sounds just a little low in your range. Also, the guitar is not soo out of tune as to take away from this version, but it is noticible. I think you could find a tuner plug in for GB. There MUST be a good one out there. Google gave me this in about eight seconds.

Isn't it interesting how what we write can be interpreted by the listener as something else? This sounds like it could be a breakup song as much as it is an advice song. No denying it's a good song.

great track
I thought the guitars sounds fine. I enjoy your voice, especially the
harmony background work you do here. You also show some nice
production skills with the addition of the string like pads in the
background, nice touch. The song has such a nice hook and overall
vibe

Evoking certain emotions, this is
Theres a quality to your voice which is so sweet its hard to describe, sort
of comforting I guess. Its a voice directly from my generation in the 90's
it akes me back to when I was 21 with whole world laid out before me and
all I could concentrate about was living in the now. Thanks for taking me
back your voice is representing home to me, somewhere in the back of
my head :)

Nice demo
Reminds me of a tune from the musical Rent, especially the harmonies.
Very nice writing, good combination of solid balance and improvisational
feel. This track has a very demo, and could use some tightening and
more personality in the vocal performance (there is a sameness that is
less compelling than some of your other tracks). I think the use of a low
end instrument, like a bass, would really help too. Solid writing and nice
use of passing harmonies / second voice (more than normal harmonies).

Hey, I love pop music, piano ballads, and beautiful smooth, clear vocals. I've been singing since I was young in musical theater and drama productions. I can play flute and piano. Taking guitar lessons. Writing songs is something new I've tried. It's... [see more]
