Fly Away/ Sweet Surrender


Like winds and sunsets, wild things were taken for granted until progress began to do away with them. Now we face the question whether a still higher 'standard of living' is worth its cost in things natural, wild and free. For us of the minority, the opportunity to see geese is more important that television.”
― Aldo Leopold


Fly Away (Excerpts)

Life in the city  can make you crazy
For sounds of the sand and the sea
Life in a high-rise  can make you hungry
For things that you can't even see


Sweet Surrender  (Excerpts)

Lost and alone on some forgotten highway
Traveled by many, remembered by few
Lookin’ for something that I can believe in
Lookin’ for something that I’d like to do with my life

There’s nothin’ behind me and nothin’ that ties me
To somethin’ that might have been true yesterday
Tomorrow is open; right now it seems to be more
Than enough to just be here today

And I don’t know what the future is holdin’ in store
I don’t know where I’m goin’, I’m not sure where I’ve been
There’s a spirit that guides me, a light that shines for me
My life is worth the livin’, I don’t need to see the end

Sweet, sweet surrender, Live, live without care
Like a fish in the water, Like a bird in the air
