Up & Flying lyrics

(gary burr, patty griffin)

Lately Im alone a lot.
Mostly I guess youre not.
Forgive me if I stop and stare.
I was just alittle unprepared.
So the world has fallen at your feet.
Yeah you hardly even missed a beat.
Everyday your heart beats a little stronger.
But my nights for me get a little longer.

Chorus
Youve gone on a million miles from here.
Swept up like a feather in the air.
Well you make it look so easy.
That doesnt seem quite fair.
cause baby Im still tryin to
Get myself up and flying.

I should be farther on by now.
I just cant seem to catch a breeze somehow.
I should be free to leave the ground.
With no dreams left to weigh me down.
Well could you tell me what to do.
Ive been tryin to eny the truth.
But here it is now the living proof.
The one I love loves someone new.

Repeat chorus

Oh you make it look so easy.
It doesnt seem quite fair.
cause baby Im still tryin to get myself.
Up and flying
