  1. Fly Away, Fly

From the recording Fly Away, Fly

By the time I was in college, I had experienced the deaths of family members... my mom, all but one grandparent, aunts and uncles. Loss is painful. But it wasn't until I learned of the passing of my first-ever, childhood best friend, John Paul Cantrell, that I felt a loss of innocence. When John Paul died, part of the innocence of my childhood died as well. I was fortunate to be able to fly back to New Orleans and attend his funeral.
On the flight back to San Antonio late that night, I was looking out the window of the plane, into the darkness. I wondered, if God gave me the opportunity to say one final thing to John Paul, what would I say to him? Immediately I could envision angels leading his soul into Heaven and I think I would have said something like, "Go Home, John Paul, go Home. Don't look back; let the angels lead you Home. Fly away Home."
By the time the plane landed I already had the entire song written. Immediately upon arriving home very late in the night, I picked up my guitar and the song came out in one take. Over the years I have received numerous reports of "healing" that has taken place via this song. If you are in need of healing, I pray you will receive it... now.
This version is the second recording of the song. The original version is under the tab, "Cry Out to Jesus".

Lyrics

Seems like yesterday I saw you
Chasing dreams for a better day
But sometimes dreams they slip away
Sometimes taken, sometimes taken away
Still you laughed and still you smiled
Though the road you walked
How it seemed it would never end
Well streets of gold you wander now
Found your freedom as a song in the wind
I heard you singing...
Fly away, to the heavens
Fly away, back Home
Fly away, with the angels
Fly away, fly
Ain't it funny how fast the years they go by
But we never, never notice; we never take the time
So we wonder now and we question, "Why?"
Like the shadows that dance in the night
I heard them singing...
Fly away, to the heavens
Fly away, back Home
Fly away, with the angels
Fly away, fly
Seems like yesterday I saw you there
I just turned around, just for one moment
And you were gone
Now it's hard for me to let go
To say "Goodbye", when you're already gone
So I'm singing...
Fly away, to the heavens
Fly away, back Home
Fly away, with the angels
Fly away, fly
