Upon hearing Fly Upright Kite it will become immediately obvious how this Boston-based band has gained a large and loyal following. Fly Upright Kite is a young, energetic pop/rock group that blends heartfelt compositions with well-crafted pop melodies. Their powerful choruses and inventive hooks are sure to linger in your head for days.

After evolving into their current driving and electric sound, Fly Upright Kite began relentlessly performing at many popular venues around the New England area. Their often delicate and personal lyrics have proven to cut through the noise of any crowded rock club and make a connection with audiences of all ages.

In late April of 2006 the band released "Every Breathing Moment", their highly anticipated, debut EP. Engineered and mixed by Kenny Lewis (Stryper, Journey), this promising collection of 5 songs has won over fans across the nation and acts as an excellent first look into the emotion and creativity that defines all of Fly Upright Kite's work.

Having shared the stage with national touring bands Moneen (vagrant), Rookie of the Year (one eleven), Dameria (equal vision), Denison Witmer, Umbrellas and Brandston of The Militia Group Fly Upright Kite is reaching out to new fans everyday. In addition, Every Breathing Moment's radio single, "Burn Out", is a favorite among local DJs and has received frequent airplay on popular, regional radio stations WBCN and WFNX.

Armed with a well-received new EP, a dynamic, expressive live show, and the unusual use of violin in a rock group, Fly Upright Kite produces the fresh, compelling sound that makes them one of the most captivating bands on the competitive New England music scene.

Lyrics

Burn Out

Written By: Fly Upright Kite

Welcome my sweet heartache
What has brought you here?
To show me how you light up
And how you disappear?

I wont watch you burn out
Cause your beauty will never feel the same
I cannot stand to watch you wanting to change
What was wrong with what you were just yesterday
Theres nothing beautiful when your spark starts to fade

You could take me if you wanted
Take me anywhere
I would carry you
If need me there

Ooo I guess its my fault when I left myself wide open
Ooo its just your symphony that keeps playing through my head

I wont watch you burn out
Cause your beauty will never feel the same
I cannot stand to watch you wanting to change
What was wrong with what you were just yesterday
Theres nothing beautiful when your spark starts to fade

Say You Love Me

Written By: Fly Upright Kite

My back against the ground
Im looking up waiting to see if you are coming down
Im putting faith to test
Im letting go to see just where you will rest

So I'll drown in love, life me up above
Until I fill clouds with doubt let them rain out.

So say you love me
And this is not ending
Or have I fallen without you

Love has dark corners
To hide all the lies in a room full of light
My stitched heart can not feel a shadow moving
Everytime I put trust in your hands You break what I gave
Please I'll make you believe

So say you love me
And this is not ending
Or have I fallen without you

Give me wings I need the wind
To lift we me up out of weathered skin
I can be loved to make things clear
I can be loved I need you here

So say you love me
And this is not ending
Or have I fallen without you

Say you love me
And this is not ending or have these Dark clouds broke open

additional lyrics verse 2:
Are you inching closer?
Or is that your ghost haunting my every move?
Is there something in here?
Nothing for me?

Sadness is a Weight

Written By: Fly Upright Kite

you say you don't know
if these cuts will stay closed
my hand will lay open
by your bed railing
waiting for yours

tangled up in wires
it's hard for me to get you to smile
this loneliness keeps you awake
and the darkness it tastes like blame
but you've done nothing wrong

i would stretch out the sunlight
across the hospital room
for you hope to find you
we'll repair your lifeline
bright with colors to make you feel brand new

you feel like your nothing
like you could disappear
but i would give anything
to have you to look at me
like you'll see me again

i would stretch out the sunlight
across the hospital room
for you hope to find you
we'll repair your lifeline
bright with colors to make you feel brand new
for hope to find you
so hold on hold on
you'll make your way out of this soon
hold on hold on
have faith in the heart inside of you

when your sadness starts to weigh you down
when your sadness starts to bring you down
i'll lift that weight from off of your skin
