lyrics

little girl said mama look think i'm gonna fly today
little girl said mama look think i'm gonna fly today
and she strapped on her wings knotted the strings around her throat
with nothing to bring her down feathers singing she went up

floating spinning up she goes up to heaven up to who knows
ripping reaching up she goes and down again

mama look she cried gonna catch a star today
mama see she cried gonna go far today
and with those feathers running down her spine she looked up at this fine gentleman
flash in her eyes again catching the skies she went up

but what goes up must come down again
the reddest roses fade to brown again
and return to dust develop rust
we all fall down

down she came broke and bruised along the way
all alone she came lost and scattered and grey
she said i don't want to fly by heart it's so lonely so dark and so high
and everything comes apart in the sky

everything going up just comes raining down again
true blue love fades to brown again and returns to dust
i'm full of rust
we all fall down

little girl said mama look think i'm gonna fly today
scared as hell but mama look think i'm gonna fly today
and she strapped on her wings torn and tattered wings from long ago
she stared into the sun like a bullet from a smoking gun up
