Fly Away From Dangerous Things

By Patti Wood

My daddy was a fighter pilot
Soared straight into battle
His passion just to see the sky lit
Made him roar and rattle

And I’d pull back my shoulders
Pretend I’d Angel wings
And I’d fly, fly away from dangerous things
And I’d fly, fly away from dangerous things

Daddy he would come home angry
Bring him another drink
Thought his yelling made him manly
Look down, bow and shrink

But I’d pull back my shoulders
Pretend I’d Angel wings
And I’d fly, fly away from dangerous things
And I’d fly, fly away from dangerous things

Silent to the blows never blink
Each man hurt me more
Trouble taking me to the brink
Leave my body on the floor

Then I’d pull back my shoulders
Pretend I’d Angel wings
And I’d fly, fly away from dangerous things
And I’d fly, fly away from dangerous things

Taken all the hurt, earned each feather of these wings
I saved myself
I saved myself

Now I’ll pull back my shoulders
I’ve got my Angel wings
And I’ll fly, fly away from dangerous things
And I’ll fly, fly away from dangerous things
And I’ll fly away
I’ll fly away
I’ll fly away from dangerous things

Dark choice bridge
I go higher no need to kneel and plea
Shrouded in the mist the blue seeps in
I am safe up here, the clouds comfort me
I go higher and higher don’t need to breathe

And I’ll pull back my shoulders
Pretend I’ve Angel wings
And I’ll fly, fly away from dangerous things
And I’ll fly, fly away from dangerous things

Healing choice Verse

Being on the ground was not safe had to unlink
Each better man hurt me more
Silent to the blows I’d never blink
The damage was merely to my earthly core

Healing bridge

Took long time but now I see
I’ve changed my need to bleed
I know to fly to better things
Taken all the hurt earned each feather of these wings

And I’ll pull back my shoulders
I’ve got my Angel wings
And I’ll fly, fly away from dangerous things
And I’ll fly, fly away from dangerous things

I’ve found a king man with wings
So we can fly to better things
We’ve both taken hurt earned a real angel wings

And I’ll pull back my shoulders
I’ve got my Angel wings
And I’ll fly, fly away from dangerous things
And I’ll fly, fly away from dangerous things
