I think I know who this song is about, but I’m scared to let myself say it. - David


Everyone wants me to sing sad songs, so I do.
‘Cause everyone seems to have seen someone go, and I have to.
They all say the pain is too much to pay,
too much to pay to play these silly love games.
I just don’t feel the same.

‘Cause even though I’ve been brought down so many times,
I remember how you and I would...

Fly – I know how love’s meant to be,
‘cause boy you showed me how it felt to
Fly – I won’t stop trying to find,
something that feels like you and I.

Every time I leave my room, someone new catches my eye.
I start to feel light and I remember how it felt, how it felt to fly.
The same song gets sung again,
we talk until we touch, then we touch until it turns to somethin’ sad.
Guess I don’t think that’s so bad.

Someday I’m gonna find someone that feels like you.

Fly – I know how love’s meant to be,
‘cause boy you showed me how it felt to
Fly – I know it’s somethin’ I’ll find,
‘cause baby, we’re all meant to fly.
