One Day I'll Fly Away

 
 

 

One Day I'll FLy Away



I make it alone

When love is gone

Still you made your mark

Here in my heart



One day I'll fly away

Leave your love to yesterday

What more can your love do for me

When will love be through with me



I follow the night

Can't stand the light

When will I begin

My life again



One Day I'll fly away

Leave your love to yesterday

What more can your love do for me

When will love be through with me

Why live life from dream to dream

And dread the day that dreaming ends



One day I'll fly away leave your love to yesterday

What more can your love do for me

When will love be through with me

Why live life from dream to dream

And dread the day that dreaming ends



One day i'll fly away, fly away, fly away

Always love listening to her wonderful voice

Ah thats right Joe Sample...he's a magi on the piano...what a secret combination they are...

Yep. she really is good.<br />
<br />
The pianist in this video is Joe Sample, also ex- of The Crusaders, with whom she did "Street Life".<br />
<br />
He does apiece on his solo album (circa 1980) called "midnight and mist", if i remember correctly, that is really enjoyable. in fact, I liked most of his pieces on "Carmel"<br />

I watched a documentary on her and the main keyboardist (her husband I think) talked about how he realised for all those years they had gotten it wrong all along trying to accompany Randy with strings and ochestra's and wall of sound approaches to making music - when in the end the greatest instrument they had was Randy's voice alone - that was the day he said they realised to let her sing and encourage the msuicians to stay out of the way...sometimes less of everyone else means more of RANDY...and that means good music for us who love her.

She makes it look soooo easy.

Thank you both mistygrey and bcjI updated that video bcj - thanks for the heads-up and linkcherish her music...

very nice.<br />

Thanks for posting this, Dread, it's been years since I last heard it :) The lyrics are beautiful and so is Randy Crawford's voice....Strangely enough, I was listening to her singing on the Crusaders song "Street Life" earlier this morning...
