This is the first song I actually wrote while dreaming! In the dream, I’d been given an assignment to write a song about the book The Mermaid Chair, live, with a quartet, with a room of people of watching. I was so nervous in the dream, but then this song came out. I forced myself to wake up and write it all down. :)

I’m looking forward to hearing what you do with it!

key of D maj / b min (chords below lyrics)

Fly Again

Today I returned to the island
Rush of thought flooding in from my childhood
Though I’ve tried to forget how we lost you
The sun-silver water revives you
Now

Still a girl nearly drowning just to feel
A father
With a weight of a spark bearing fault
On these shoulders
But freedom of truth is unraveling
A storm-hidden cross of pretending
Falling back in the chair where he’s there
Just like a prayer

Let me go
I’ve lost myself along this road
And I don’t know why
Yea I can’t say how
But I can see a light
It’s my one way out
I gotta fly again
Somehow

While egrets nest
White pelicans fly
Saw clouds and myself in the blue of his eyes
I could feel the tide inside me rise
On the shore of our goodbye

Let me go
Let me go
Haven’t you always known

That you’d let me go
I’ve lost myself along this road
Yea let me go
Gotta find my way back home
And I don’t know why
Yea I can’t say how
But I can see a light
It’s my one way out
I gotta fly again
Feel alive again
Gotta fly again
Somehow

Let me go
Gotta fly again
Let me go
I gotta fly again
Let me go
I gotta fly
