Fly Away from Here

Thursday, November 05, 2015

Have you ever felt like you want to go, someplace other than the place you used to be or always be? Have you ever felt like you are suffocated for being at the same place for like forever, and it makes you want to run away from there? Have you ever felt so stuck at the same old place, and it makes you want to fly away from there? Have you ever wanted to get away or escape with a loved one? Well, I have, many times. And if I could fly away from here, I don’t wanna be alone. I would take my partner along with me. We would fly away, anywhere; I don’t care as long as we’re together, because I believe that our hopes and dreams are out there somewhere. And we gotta find them. And there’s nothing could stop us. We would fly away there, to the place where just the two of us. The third post for Random Play is a song titled “Fly Away from Here”, performed by the legendary American rock band, Aerosmith.

Gotta find a way; I can’t wait another day. Ain’t nothing gonna change if we stay around here. Gotta do what it takes, ‘cause it’s all in our hands. We all make mistakes, but it’s never too late to start again. Take another breath and say another prayer, and fly away from here, anywhere; I don’t care.” –Aerosmith, Fly Away from Here

Released on June 2nd 2001, “Fly Away from Here” was the second single taken from Aerosmith’s 13th studio album, “Just Push Play”. The power ballad track was written by the band’s songwriters Marti Frederiksen and Todd Chapman. “Just Push Play” was released on March 6th 2001, making it the first Aerosmith album of the 21st century.
Life is hard, yet it seems harder at times. Lyrically, “Fly Away from Here” speaks up about the feeling of desire to break away, get out of the comfort zone, and leave for a better days to live on. “Gotta find a way; I can’t wait another day. Ain’t nothing gonna change if we stay around here. Gotta do what it takes, ‘cause it’s all in our hands. We all make mistakes, but it’s never too late to start again. Take another breath and say another prayer.” There are times when life seems so hostile. There are times when we feel so stuck and suffocated. There are times when we feel like there’s nothing left to live for in this world, like everything is meaningless, like all things we’ve done is pointless. “If this life, it seems harder now. It ain’t no never mind, you got me by your side. And anytime you want, we can catch a train and find a better place. ‘Cause we won’t let nothing or no one keep getting us down. Maybe you and I could pack our bags and hit the sky.”
However, it’s never too late to make new stories. We can take a breath, say a prayer, and start again. And somehow, that strength can come from someone we hold most dear. And whenever we’re with that person, in some way we find a courage to fly away from here. We can pack our bags, catch a train, say goodbye to our old-past-selves, and find a better place to live. “Do you see a bluer sky now? You can have a better life now, open your eyes. ‘Cause no one here can ever stop us, they can try but we won’t let them, no way. Maybe you and I could pack our bags and say goodbye.” We only live once, so how nice it would be if we could be with someone we love? And every time I’m with him, I feel like we could fly away from here. Time won’t pass, and we’ll just fly. “And fly away from here, anywhere, I don’t care. We just fly away from here, our hopes and dreams are out there somewhere. Won’t let time pass us by, we’ll just fly. We just fly.”
The video for “Fly Away from Here” was directed by Joseph Kahn. It also starred the actress Jessica Biel, and Steven Tyler’s youngest daughter Chelsea portraying Steven as a child in this video. Since it was released in the beginning of what people called the Millennium Era, the music video was very futuristic and high-tech; advance at its time.

If this life, it seems harder now. It ain’t no never mind, you got me by your side. And anytime you want, we can catch a train and find a better place. ‘Cause we won’t let nothing or no one keep getting us down. Maybe you and I could pack our bags and hit the sky, and fly away from here, anywhere; I don’t care.” –Aerosmith, Fly Away from Here




“Gotta find a way, yeah I can’t wait another day
Ain’t nothing gonna change if we stay around here
Gotta do what it takes, ‘cause it’s all in our hands
We all make mistakes, yeah but it’s never too late to start again
Take another breath and say another prayer

And fly away from here, anywhere, yeah I don’t care
We just fly away from here, our hopes and dreams are out there somewhere
Won’t let time pass us by, we’ll just fly, yeah

If this life, it seems harder now
It ain’t no never mind, you got me by your side
And anytime you want, yeah we can catch a train and find a better place
‘Cause we won’t let nothing or no one keep getting us down
Maybe you and I could pack our bags and hit the sky

Do you see a bluer sky now? You can have a better life now, open your eyes
‘Cause no one here can ever stop us, they can try but we won’t let them, no way
Maybe you and I could pack our bags and say goodbye

And fly away from here, anywhere, honey I don’t care
We just fly away from here, our hopes and dreams are out there somewhere
Fly away from here, yeah anywhere, honey I don’t, I don’t, I don’t care
Yeah, we just fly”
