I’m Gonna Fly Away

Music: Shawn Poon
Lyrics: Leonard Sam

You say I’m just a little child
With my dresses and dolls
You don’t care about my dreams
That I’m trapped behind these walls
So I’m gonna show the world what I can do
That I’ve never needed any one of you

I’m gonna fly away
Soaring high above this world
Don’t need anyone’s permission
Don’t need anyone to love
When I fly away
It’ll be too late for regrets
You should have held me
Close to you instead

I was underachieving
My life’s assessment in your mind
For my pain, my fears, my tears
You’ve never had the time
You had so many more important things to do
My life was nothing significant to you

I’m gonna fly away
Soaring high above this world
Don’t need anyone’s permission
Don’t need anyone to love
When I fly away
It’ll be too late for regrets
You should have held me
Close to you instead
You should have held me
Close to you instead
