Fly Farther

by Jars of Clay

He picked her up some flowers, on a Sunday afternoon
Set out on the porch swing, underneath the crescent moon
A lifetime seemed to pass, staring at the skies
And on the swing he gave her the ring
There were tears in her eyes

He said, I pray I’m not alone, in my dreams about forever
That you and I could become one, and always be together
We’d grow old and wise through all the days, for worse or for better
And I’ll be true beside you, even now more than ever

My time flies, but we’ll fly farther
Into the night, where the eyes of loneliness can never bother
All our dreams of together
Uneclipsed by never-never
My time flies, it’s in your eyes
But we’ll fly… farther

Fifty years have ridden off into the sunset
And the tears that we have cried have overflown
And here we are counting scars
Wounds of life’s unending upsets
You with me, and I with you, and I will never forget

My time flies, but we’ll fly farther
Into the night, where the eyes of loneliness can never bother
All our dreams of together
Uneclipsed by never-never
My time flies, it’s in your eyes
But we’ll fly… farther

He picked her up some flowers, on a Sunday afternoon
He rode the Greyhound bus, past the house they used to swoon
He knelt beside the grave, hung his head, a teardrop fell
On the stone, the epitaph show
The words he knew so well…

My time flies, but we’ll fly farther
Into the night, where the eyes of loneliness can never bother
All our dreams of together
Uneclipsed by never-never
My time flies, it’s in your eyes
But we’ll fly… farther

(My time flies)

We’ll fly farther
Into the night, where the eyes of loneliness can never bother
All our dreams of together
Uneclipsed by never-never
My time flies, it’s in your eyes
But we’ll fly… (we’ll fly)
Farther (farther)

We’ll fly farther (we’ll fly farther)
We’ll fly farther (we’ll fly farther)
