Flying For Me Lyrics

This song appears on five albums, and was first released on the One World Album, and has also been released on the A Portrait, Country Classics, The Rocky Mountain Collection and The Country Roads Collection Albums.


Well I guess that you probably know by now
I was one who wanted to fly
I wanted to ride on that arrow of fire right up into heaven
And I wanted to go for every man
Every child, every mother of children
I wanted to carry the dreams of all people right up to the stars

And I prayed that Id find an answer there
Or maybe I would find a song
Giving a voice to all of the hearts that cannot be heard
And for all of the ones who live in fear
And all of those who stand apart
My being there would bring us a little step closer together

They were flying for me
They were flying for everyone
They were trying to see a brighter day for each and everyone

They gave us their light
They gave us their spirit and all they could be
They were flying for me
They were flying for me

And I wanted to wish upon the Milky Way
And dance upon a falling star
I wanted to give myself and free myself, and join myself with it all

Given the chance to dream, it can be done
The promise of tomorrow is real
Children of spaceship Earth
The future belongs to us all

She was flying for me
She was flying for everyone
She was trying to see a brighter day for each and everyone

She gave us her light
She gave us her spirit and all she can be
She was flying for me
They were flying for me
They were flying for everyone
They were trying to see a brighter day for each and everyone

They gave us their light
They gave us their spirit and all they can be
They were flying for me
They were flying for me
They were flying for me
They were flying for me

This song always reminds me that John had ten years extra life for which I am eternally grateful. She was flying for him.

For anyone that doesn't know, this was John's song dedicated to the astronauts of the Challenger Space Shuttle. John was a finalist to be the first civilian in space, but the decision was to go with a teacher instead. Hence the comment about how we were lucky to have him for another ten years, albeit at the lose of a truly amazing woman.
