You're an anchor, I'm uptight
You're what gets me through the night
You keep me steady and on course
Til' I found you I was lost
But you're the earth and I'm sky
And sometimes if I go to high
Well then you pull a string that pulls me back
If not for you I might lose track

And I might fly away
Oh I might fly away, and go my own way
To places that we've never been together
I might fly away (fly away), take to the sky some day
But not for now, not today
Nobody here is flyin' away, away

You have reasons, I have dreams
So we're perfect, so it seems
You talk fortunes, I tell the truth
Kept me from my crazy youth
When you're near me I fee-eel whole
I don't have to rock and roll
I don't worry, I don't think
But baby hold me close and I won't break

I just might fly away
Oh I might fly away, and go my own way
To places that we've never been together
I might fly away (fly away), take to the sky some day
But not for now, not today
Nobody here is flyin', flyin' away
Oh I might fly away (fly away)
I might fly away (fly away)
But not for now-ow, not today
Nobody here is flyin' away (flyin' away)
Oh I might fly away (flyin' away)
I might fly away, take to the sky some day
But not for now, not today
Nobody here is flyin' away
