Night calls through the air
Reaching for its solitude
Dusk lures like a lyre
Beckoning the quietude

In a state of constant commotion
Full of rage and heartless devotion
There's a need that burns within
To fly away, just fly away

Soft winds kiss the land
Silent and in gratitude
Children, hand in hand
Comprehend the quietude

Through a maze of fear and compulsion
There's a race for power and fortune
Still a need within cries out
To fly away, just fly away

People rush, people flee
They move so fast that they cannot see
Work all day, up all night
They push and hide all the joy inside

Like a wave that breathes in the ocean
And the mountain's peak with emotion
Still a need within cries out
To find a way, just find a way

Time to leave and fly away
To take a leave and just cast away
To leave the worries and dismay
It's time to go, it's time to play

It's time to leave and fly away
(It's time now to fly away)
To take a leave and just cast away
To leave the worries and dismay
(Take leave and cast away)
It's time to go, it's time to play

It's time to leave and fly away
(To fly)
To take a leave and just cast away
To leave the worries and dismay
It's time to go, it's time to play

It's time to leave and fly away
(The moon, it guides my way)
To take a leave and just cast away
To leave the worries and dismay
(Winds blow to show the way)
It's time to go, it's time to play

It's time to leave and fly away
(To fly)
To take a leave and just cast away

Dawn breaks, day descends
With a calming attitude
Shadows fall and bend
Welcome in the quietude
