Fly Away (live)

by Sarah Howell

about

Written as a reflection on the funeral of a 26-year-old Marine who took his own life.

lyrics

The last words he spoke to his father were all
Out of love, out of love
Where did the love go, and what was the cause?
All undone, all undone
No one could explain what happened next
But they do believe angels wept

Ooh...

What sickness or madness took hold of his mind
They don't know, they don't know
But something had crept in, come up from behind
Overthrown, overthrown
The little boy's gone, so's the man they'd known
And his father prayed for his soul

Ooh...

I'll fly away, oh glory
I'll fly away
When I die, hallelujah by and by
I'll fly away

When I die, hallelujah by and by
I'll fly away
