Paul Vogelzang While this is an important song, it is easy to listen to, relatable, inspirational and meaningful. I've been a long time fan of Dusty Wright's, and all his creative efforts, and this song is truly reflective of his depth and talent as a songwriter. Plus, excellent vocals by Queen Esther, and drums by Sammy Merendino are amazing!

Sherry Cooke Songs like this should be played over and over to set you free from the judgemental attitudes and disappointments which lead to depression. Such a freeing, upbeat and inspirational song delivered with Dusty's amazing vocals and sound. I felt like I WAS flying after this one! Thanks, Dusty!

about

"Fly" was inspired by the tragic suicide of a young New York City woman who couldn't break free from the emotional chains of her orthodox religion and their insane demands mounted by her family and religious leaders to keep her in place. She just wanted to be loved and accepted outside of their archaic and soul-crushing rules. Sadly they would not accommodate her; even refused to see her after she escaped them. Underneath the upbeat nature of the song's melody lies the real story. This song is a celebration of her life and all individuals that suffer from some unseen emotional pain who are trying to fly free from the chains of imprisonment. The song is also about the duality of life. What makes one person soar and another crash and burn? How can some deal with the hurdles of life while others are forever tortured? Regardless, depression should not be shrouded in shame nor marginalized by others.

lyrics

I'M GONNA CARRY MY PAIN TO THE SUMMIT
TAKE MY TIME, I'M TIRED OF RUNNIN'
SHOUT IT LOUD FROM THE MOUNTAIN SIDE
AS FAR AND WIDE AS THE HIGHEST CROW FLIES
I MAY NOT CLEAR THIS ATMOSPHERE
MAY NOT SEE, BUT NOW I CAN BREATHE
FLY! FLY!

I'M GONNA HITCH A RIDE ON A SHOOTIN' STAR - FLY!
LEAVE BEHIND ALL MY VANISHING SCARS - FLY!
WON'T LOOK BACK ON WHERE I'VE BEEN - FLY!
I'M ONLY LOOKING FORWARD TO MY FORWARD SPIN - FLY!
REALLY DON'T FEAR THIS ATMOSPHERE
SO RELIEVED I FINALLY CAN BREATHE
FLY! FLY!

SOLO:

I'M GONNA BURN SO BRIGHT IN THE EVENING SKY - FLY!
I'M GONNA CIRCLE THE SUN AND NEVER ASK WHY - FLY!
I WON'T LOOK BACK ON WHERE I'VE BENN - FLY!
I'M ONLY LOOKING FORWARD TO MY FORWARD SPIN - FLY!
REALLY DON'T FEAR MY ATMOSPHERE
FINALLY CAN SEE, AND NOW I CAN BREATHE
FLY! FLY!

REALLY DON'T FEAR MY ATMOSPHERE
FINALLY CAN SEE, AND NOW I CAN BREATHE
FLY! FLY! FLY! FLY!
