Fly Away Lyrics

[Chorus]
For you I'd leave, I'd fly away
For you I'd leave, I'd fly awayEvery night before I sleep, I try to find you in my window
But you're so very far away and though everyone can see you
But I look at you different sometimes, I wish, you'd shine for meOh I, I can feel you, I can't touch you, it's not the same without you
My world won't spin without you, when I see you you know what I'll do
Just that I'd like to have you, I'd always have to share you[Chorus]Sun won't set until you come, I wish, I could be the one
You pull in like a tide for the sea, you disappear I wonder, why?
And I can't wait till goes to night, it's not the same when you're not hereOh I, I can feel you, I can't touch you, it's not the same without you
My world won't spin without you when I see you, you know what I'll do
Just that I'd like to have you, I'd always have to share you[Chorus]For you I'd leave, I'd fly away
Baby, just fly away
For you I'd leave, I'd fly away[Chorus]And now the sun is setting
The stars are almost shining
All day I sit and wait for the moon
