Story

In 2008 I lost someone very close to me. In her memory, some of her ashes are scattered over a waterfall in Hawaii. She would have loved that. The lyrics of this song are my attempt at metaphorically explaining what I think happens when we leave this Earth.

This version was done by Bolt Upright Enterprises in Richmond Hill Ontario. I think these fellows have done a great job on this song particularly at the end which really captures the "fly away" feel that I think this song needs. My friend Bernd has really figured me out. Just for information Bernd Queiser is playing drums, bass, percussion, piano, Dave Greer played additional guitars and piano and I'm on acoustic guitars and vocals. The mix was lovingly done by Bernd and Dave.

Lyrics

Waterfall (Fly Away)

Ride the wind
Set your sights for the sun Teach your soul to be free Life is what we make of it Life can be short or long Living free forever
In your mind
Your mind
In your mind

Ride the wind
Loose the bounds of this earth Soaring high o’er the clouds We’re all spirits here
Bound to this earthly place Waiting to fly
Fly away
Away
Fly away
Oh fly away
Oh fly away [repeats and fades]
