From the recording Form Over Dysfunction

Lyrics

Verse 1
He said “I Do” Over 60 years ago
Now he still wonders if she is the one
But he’s made his bed, he’ll lie in it
and sometimes he will cry in it alone, All alone
Verse 2
He has 4 children that he loves with all his heart
and he takes every chance to tell them so
but actions can belie the words
and little hurts can often take their toll, take their toll
Chorus 2
He always likes to fly around
Doesn’t like to stay long on the ground
Then one day his plane goes up
And never comes down
Verse 2
As the years go by; the children are all grown
dishonesty and love go hand in hand
Choices can be criticized; it’s always easy for blame to be thrown, to be thrown
Chorus 1
He always likes to fly around (round, round,round,round)
Doesn’t like to stay long on the ground (round,round,round)
Then one day his plane goes up
And never comes down
Verse 3
And, in the end, all the children gather ‘round
They love him and they just want him to know
He’s made his bed, he’ll lie in it
At least he will not die in it alone
