And I'll Fly

from by David Thompson



We were young
My knock on the door
They ignored
And I acted the same
Had enough
So I followed them down
To the ground
In the mud and the rain

But I'll fly away for you
And I'll fly and you'll see truth
And I'll fly high away for you
And I'll fly

Just a fool
Nothing more than the stain
On a plain
That you're soaking with bleach
Growing old
At this rate I could die
With the sigh
Of what I'll never reach

I can change
I won't be concerned
With their words
That distracted my mind
Then someday
My thoughts will be free
To believe
In what I feel inside


What is human
That's all I want to learn
Is it people
Well, they don't seem at all concerned
Is this vision
A delusional reality
If they're human
Am I human

And I don't know what I'm doing here
You're melting away when I'm trapped in fear
Sir, can you tell me what I'm doing here

Hello there! I'm David and I write music. I'm currently in a new band called Something Dear and we'll hopefully be doing some really cool things very soon.

Over the last three years I have been held hostage by my first solo album project. The good news is that I'm really finished with it this time*, and I'll be working hard on new things from here on.

Take care!
