Faith Hill — If You're Gonna Fly Away lyrics

(Alicia B. Moore/Linda Perry)

If you're gonna fly away
Don't fly without me
Don't go nowhere
I need you babe
Has the sun gone down on you
Have you given up on truth
I wish I could say all the right things
To make your pain go away

I wish you knew how beautiful you are in every way
When the world is falling down
Just kneel with me and pray

If you're gonna fly away
Don't fly without me
Don't run away
I need you babe
If you're gonna leave this place
Take me with you
I could never live without you

So you'll take a thousand pills, hoping to be numb
Lie awake in bed counting all that's wrong
No one understands, no one ever will
Trust me when I tell you, I know just how you feel
You had all these dreams
But your small town, they killed them for you
You had nothing else to do
But to use and use and use and use

If you're gonna fly away
Don't fly without me
Don't run away
I need you babe
If you're gonna leave this place
Take me with you
I could never live without you

Just sing a song for me baby
It's not as bad as it seem, no no
What matters today won't matter tomorrow
Count all your blessings
Instead of all your sorrows

If you're gonna fly away
Don't fly without me
Don't run away
I need you babe
If you're gonna leave this place
Take me with you
I could never live without you
