That song!

Back in 1999, we did a lot of driving back and forth to the hospital.

There was a song……  you know that song….. the one that is the hit of the moment and constantly plays on the radio….?

Back then it was : “Fly Away”  by Lenny Kravitz, the fourth single from his 1998 album 5.

That song made me cry and really wish that I could fly away.

To this day, when I hear it, it takes me back to our minivan coming home from the hospital

…………..

I wish that I could fly
Into the sky
So very high
Just like a dragonfly

I’d fly above the trees
Over the seas in all degrees
To anywhere I please

Oh I want to get away
I want to fly away
Yeah yeah yeah
Oh I want to get away
I want to fly away
Yeah yeah yeah

Let’s go and see the stars
The milky way or even Mars
Where it could just be ours

Let’s fade into the sun
Let your spirit fly
Where we are one
Just for a little fun

Oh oh oh yeah !
I want to get away
I want to fly away
Yeah yeah yeah
I want to get away
I want to fly away
Yeah yeah yeah
I got to get away

Feel I got to get away

……

I don’t feel like I want or need to get away anymore but that song still gets me every single time!

What about you, is there a song that takes you back to a specific time or memory?

  1. For me it’s Laura Story’s “Blessing”, it’s a christian song. I used it for the video of Sophie taking her first steps and every time I hear it it’s like the last four years flash before me. All the struggles and triumphs, I cry when I hear it but it’s a good cry.
