about

a song written for my heroine, Amelia Earhart, the first female aviator to cross the Atlantic.

lyrics

I can't find you now
You're hiding in a big rain cloud
Painting silently
But no one stops to see
You heard the sirens' call
It soothed you to your fall
And you sing it once for me
As you slip into the sea
When I'm down and crying
I can see you flying
Amelia, flying

Wander through the darkness
Erasing all the lines
All the borders and the boundaries you defy
Leave behind a trail that paints your picture in the sky
And never lose the dreams that make you fly

This is a ghost town of a home
And the dust it fills my bones
I've grown too weak to fly
Now the ceiling is becoming my sky
But on the days it rains
I hear the engine of your plane
And I'll fix these crooked wings
Fix these crooked wings
When I'm down and crying
I can see you flying
Amelia, flying

Wander through the darkness
Erasing all the lines
All the borders and the boundaries you defy
Leave behind a trail that paints your picture in the sky
And never lose the dreams that make you fly

Never lose the dreams that make you fly
