Hoping someday life would bring me back to you

I just wanna fly with you;
I cannot understand
or look at past demands;
I just wanna fly with you

something more in their day;
So they will take flight
and spread their wings;
And soar to new heights;
to discover why they breathe

break their addictions

say goodbye to malnutrition;
whatever condition;
No more opposition;
be healed by The Great Physician
