Silver Wings
William J. Hall - July 25, 1995

  1 Went back home to the farm
  2 Past the place we used to live
  3 Your garden was all overgrown
  4 You gave it all you had to give
  5 With your feet firm on the ground
  6 You gave it your best try
  7 And I can't stop flying
 
  8 You stood there on the lawn
  9 Worrying up at me
  10 I was high in the breeze
  11 At the top of our maple tree
  12 Was it longing in your frown
  13 Though you said I'd climbed too high
  14 And I can't stop flying
 
  15 You papered our rooms with
  16 Pictures of our escape roads
  17 With stories of your childhood dreams
  18 And appearances on radio shows
 
  19 Now we talk on the phone
  20 It really comes as no surprise
  21 You say I'm the dramatic one
  22 But I know you're just a flyer in disguise
  23 And you ask me for the truth
  24 As if a bird could tell you why
  25 I can't stop flying
 
  26 You papered our rooms with
  27 Pictures of our escape roads
  28 With stories of your girlhood dreams
  29 And appearances on radio shows
 
  30 Went back home to the farm
  31 And I can't stop flying
