This was the second-place winner at the Ohio Valley Filk Festival Songwriting Contest in 2012. Make of it what you will, but I think all will be clear. ;)

lyrics

"Fly With Me"

Come with me, wanderers of land and sea afar,
You’ve been searching for a way to rise above the crowd,
And the world’s grown smaller through the years.

All the earth has been mapped, so you turned towards the stars,
In charts you’ve seen the gulfs between celestial fires and clouds,
Still you long for life beyond these spheres.

So come with me, intrepid ones who’ve yet to find their wings,
I can raise you higher than this realm of baser things,
I have reached to take your hand before,
There’s a new existence to explore.

For I am love, and I am fear, and I bring challenge,
To your yearning for ascension, I’m the key,
Just be warned that while I will fulfill your wishes,
You'll fly for but a moment of eternity.

Come with me, prisoners of birth and circumstance,
You have dreamt of just a taste of freedom from your cage,
But these dreams fade as time passes by.

All your days, you’ve been left without a fighting chance,
In violence or in poverty, in youth and in old age,
And you envy birds that course the sky.

So come with me, downtrodden ones who want to catch the breeze,
Soar where no one’s bound by laws of cruel societies,
Though I’ll level all, both strong and weak,
There’s a price to pay for what you seek.

For I am love, and I am fear, and I bring challenge,
To your yearning for ascension, I’m the key,
Just be warned that while I will fulfill your wishes,
You'll fly for but a moment of eternity.

For I am hope, and I’m despair, and I bring challenge,
You will fly with me and fall, and that’s the key,
For the tests beyond your mortal plane are calling,
I am the courier of death and life to be.

Come fly with me!

about

Gabrielle Gold Columbus, Ohio

I am a dreamer. I write songs because I need to. Music is one of those necessities in life. When I am not writing fantastical songs, I am writing novels in the same vein. I hope to record more music with the much-appreciated help of Dragon Scale Studios.

When I must return to earth, I aspire to work in a library or museum. Dreamers never do come too far back, once they have left the ground.
