Fly Like a Bird by Austin Washington



Fly Like a Bird
by Austin Washington



itunes
(2 more Fly Like a Bird videos here)

Sometimes I walk to the edge of a tall building, and I look down, and I tell myself, if I just took one more step, just one more little step, I could...

I took a ride without using a plane
Some say I'm crazy others say I'm insane
But I think it's more that my real life sucks
I'm more at home with the chickens and ducks

Yeah

Oh, sometimes I
I fly like a bird, yeah
Aw no
Oh, sometimes I
I fly like a bird, yeah
Aw no

My friends on the ground keep on calling me back
They say I'm crazy say it's sense that I lack
But I think it's more that life on the ground
Just seems so dumb in my dumb one-horse town, yeah

Oh, sometimes I
I fly like a bird, yeah
Aw no
Oh, sometimes I
I fly like a bird, yeah
Aw no

'Cause if you dare to dream, yeah
Be ready to fall
But if you never let your heart soar
You ain't got nothing - ain't got nothing at all

(This is the part where you picture yourself flying...hey - wanna tee-shirt! They're cool!!!:) (that link is somewhere! well, on spreadshirt, at least...!)

get Fly Like a Bird at iTunes NOW!


I've been flying around
Since the day I was born
Though I lost a few years
When my insides were torn
But now I am back
Floating high on the breeze
The tips of my toes
Are on the tops of the trees

Sometimes I
I fly like a bird, yeah
Aw no
Oh sometimes I
I fly like a bird, yeah
Aw no

Oh
Sometimes I
Fly like a bird
Yeah

Up in the sky
Just you and I
Under the clouds
That are far below
Up above the sun
We can have fun
Just you and I

Alright

They're never gonna see (Aw!)
The thing that's so obvious
Obvious to you and me (Aw!)

They can't fly
They're stuck on the ground

Glory Alleluiah
Let me sock it to ya (Huh!)

Alleluiah
Let me sock it to ya...

etc...

Livin' in the land of the spirit
With our hearts in the land of the free

They're never gonna know
They don't even want to let their hearts grow

Gonna sing this song
'Til the end of time, and beyond...

Here is a video I made when making Fly Like a Bird...
(SKIP TO 1.24 IF YA WANNA SEE THE REALLY COOL BIT!!)




from facebook:

Found on iPod last night - totally forgot. 2 years ago,learning to edit video w/ iMovie, same time, recording Fly Like a Bird (on iTunes now, btw!) So, this was me,practising editing.The sad part of Fly Like a Bird, in video, not in final song, (on iTunes!)

Maybe I should make another version of the song?! With the sad bit?!

I am embarrassed I called myself an "artist". It sounds really stupid, I think!


I'm embarrassed that I referred to myself as an "artist" - it sounds a bit grandiose - what I like to be, and aspire to be, is a normal person who transforms my actual life into music - which is why I want an actual life, not one of a pop star! (Not that it wouldn't be - won't be (!)  - think positive, Austin! - uber super fun to perform, at, like, Glastonbury someday, or something like that. I'd LOVE that. 

But I think I'd be infinitely better than most people, because my aspiration is to be a normal person (quite a stretch for me, I gotta say! ;) - who...yeah, I'm repeating myself, now - how can Britney Spears make a song anyone but someone like her can relate to? That's my point.

That's why the video was, literally, (the one at the top of the page) made while waiting for my hair to dry...haha...)

Okay, here's the original video, made whilst the song was being made - and here's the description, first, from my fan page at Facebook
 



Here is a video of me, chatting about the song, and then...you get to here the whole tune if ya like! Groovy....(and you get download it here!)
