Writing and Music by John Kirnan

Flying Home

Posted by John Kirnan on October 15th, 2015

 

Here's a new one I wrote this summer. It's the title track for a new song album I'm working on. As with "Black Moon," I'm going to post each song one at a time and then release them as an album once they're all recorded. Here are the lyrics:

 

Flying Home

I'll stand in the rain till I stand in the mud
I'll wash all the wounds clear of the blood
There's so many stories I need to forget
I'm ready to leave here, but not to die yet

I could go anyplace, I can go anytime
I'm not here to write reasons that make your life rhyme
This is my road I'm walking, this might be my last day
If you're not here to help, don't stand in my way

I've seen that highway
I don't know where it goes
But any road I take
Won't be a mistake
We're all just flying home

I might cry when I'm leaving, I might cry for someone
I might mourn for what once was never got done
But there'll be no more tears when I cross that line
'Cause there's no broken dream that can't be left behind

And when I go, there'll be one thing I want to say
"I'm not mad at anybody, there's no one I hate"
I wish everyone well, I wish them good luck
Just need to stop spinning my wheels before I get stuck

I've seen that highway
I don't know where it goes
But any road I take
Won't be a mistake
We're all just flying home

And there'll be no more darkness from then on
Just night all around me, clear and strong
There'll be no more doubt, corrupting as rust
I'll leave it behind me, dead in the dust

Everyone looks for freedom in their own way
It seems some get it easy, some have to pay
But you're always as free as you know that you are
It's as close as your heart, it just seems so damn far

I've seen that highway
I don't know where it goes
But any road I take
Won't be a mistake
We're all just flying home

We've all seen that highway
And we don't know where it goes
But any road you take
Won't be a mistake
We're all just flying home

We're all just flying home
