Radney Foster - Never Gonna Fly Lyrics

A young man full of pride don't need much hope
He thinks he's got it made even when he don't
Thinks all he's got to do is order up a beer or two
And make work what everybody tells him won't

He don't care what all those people say
He's got to bend the world his own way
He's got dreams, he's got no doubts
You're either in or you're out
And it's better to burn than it is to fail

You wanna feel the wind, you gotta take the ride
You better dream big, you wanna touch the sky
You can't be scared to risk it all
You never gonna fly if you're afraid to fall

And old man don't waste time with regrets
He's made mistakes along the way and yet
He smiles as he's looking back
He says I'd do it all again
In fact, you learn something new
With every single scar you get

You wanna feel the wind, you gotta take the ride
You better dream big, you wanna touch the sky
You can't be scared to risk it all
You never gonna fly if you're afraid to fall

Guess it's true that time, it really does slip away
You won't elude the chances you don't take

You wanna feel the wind, you gotta take the ride
You better dream big, you wanna touch the sky
You can't be scared to risk it all
No, you're never gonna fly if you're afraid to fall
You're never gonna fly if you're afraid to fall

If you're afraid to fall
If you're afraid to fall
Go on son, you can fly
