Fly - Phillip Phillips


The Experience: Fly is about the battle between who people think he is and tie him down to, and who he really is. "These people never notice me. Am I the only one who thinks it’s hard." Phillip breaks other people's categories of him, mixing rock guitar solos with his typical acoustic sound. His almost-country style voice also blends with darker rock lyrics in the new single Fly.  


Music Video: Still waiting.

The meaning of Phillip Phillips' Fly is about who he is - applied to you, it's about who you are. Outside, there's "the busy street... these people never notice me." I don't fit in, says Phillip, "it's hard to say what's on my mind." The questions are "give up? How should I survive?" A part feels like just giving in and blending into the "two thousand faces" of the crowd. The deeper part of Phillip rebels against just being like everyone else. "Think your fight is over? It's only so much closer." Phillip won't give up breaking out of the walls of this "cruel maze" of a nameless society: "I reach my hands to the sky... and fly!"

Ask Yourself: When people never notice me, how do I find myself?

LYRICS:
When the day is done
The weight is on my mind
How should I give up?
How should I survive?
Meaning to the side off the busy street
Looking down these people
Never notice me
Am I the only one who thinks it’s hard to breathe?

I feel it’s hard to say what’s on my mind
I being trying to say what’s not inside
You think your fight is over
It’s only so much closer
I reach my hands to the sky
And fly

Two thousand faces here but none will mind
Am I the only one with the reason behind?
Such a cruel maze only to find another wall to break
Another wall to climb
It’s when I lose myself and then I realize

I feel it’s hard to say what’s on my mind
I feel it’s hard to say what’s not inside
You think your fight is over
It’s only so much closer
I reach my hands to the sky
And fly

I feel it’s hard to say what’s on my mind
I feel it’s hard to say what’s not inside
You think your fight is over
It’s only so much closer
I reach my hands to the sky
And fly
