Lyrics

Fly With Me

Written By: Atsiaktonkie

Sometimes wonder why its me and you
sometimes wonder why smoke fires' blue
eagle whistles so i hear you
and you hear me so we do see
the sky is blue

i take my time to make this fire
sometimes i feel so tired
eagle whistles so i hear you
and you hear me so we do see
the sky is blue

would you fly with me in the breeze
would you cry with me oh please oh please
would you fly with me in the breeze
and make me feel that i am real
and make me feel that i'm with you

it's crazy to wonder why
buffalo's spirit stays in the sky
eagles whistles so i hear you
and you hear me so we do see
the sky is blue

would you fly with me in the breeze
would you cry with me oh please oh please
would you fly with me in the breeze
and make me feel that i am real
and make me feel that i'm with you
