UP AND FLYING
Patty Griffin


Mostly I'm alone a lot

Mostly I guess you're not

Forgive me if I stop and stare

I was just unprepared

That the world has fallen at your feet

You hardly even missed a beat

And every day those wings beat a little stronger

And every night for me just gets a little longer


You've gone on a million miles from here

Swept up like a feather in the air

You make it look so easy, it doesn't seem quite fair

Baby I'm still trying

To get myself up and flying


I should be farther along by now

I just can't catch a breeze somehow

I should be free to leave the ground

No dreams left to weigh me down

Could you tell me what I have to do

I've been trying to deny the truth

But here it is, living proof

The one that I love loves someone new


You've gone on a million miles from here

Swept up like a feather in the air

You make it look so easy, it doesn't seem quite fair

Baby I'm still trying

To get myself up and flying


You make it look so easy, it doesn't seem quite fair

Baby I'm still trying

To get myself up and flying
