Safe To Fly Lyrics

8. Safe To Fly (5:06)
dragonfly in the pouring rain
cast a shadow on halcyon days
chasing rainbows running the storm
unaware that your wings would be torn

sometimes I think I’m going nowhere at all
stuck in the shelter with my back to the wall
then I remember how it felt to come down
so I’m taking my time and I’m not going out

until it’s safe to fly
I would be waiting ‘til the summer sky
but I’m standing by
until I’m cleared to go
I won’t be shaken by the undertow
I’m under your wing this time
and I know there’s a storm outside
so I’ll stay ‘til I know it’s safe
safe to fly

aeronaut in a heavy cloud
staying up with the radio down
chasing rainbows you’d rather forget
unaware of the trouble ahead

sometimes I think I’m learning nothing at all
once I’ve recovered I just stumble and fall
’til I’ve discovered what the journey’s about
I’m preparing for flight, and I’ll weather it out

until it’s safe to fly
I would be waiting ‘til the summer sky
but I’m standing by
until I’m cleared to go
I won’t be shaken by the undertow
I’m biding my time
