Daddy's gone away and no one can tell me why.
Mama's been so sad since Daddy learned to fly.
Everybody brought food, and everybody cried.
Nothing's been too good since Daddy learned to fly.
The fun we used to have and the way we used to laugh,
has all gone away since they cut my world in half.
Sometimes I think I see him smiling from the sky,
but he never stops to visit since Daddy learned to fly.
Everyone tried so hard to ease my troubled mind.
Guess he's doing better than the ones he left behind.
They tell me I'm not old enough to know the reasons why
the clouds reached down from heaven when Daddy learned to fly.
Learned to fly.
Tell me that in time everything will be OK.
When life gets back to normal like before he flew away.
They tell me he can see me, so I'm trying not to cry.
But sometimes I can't help it since Daddy learned to fly.
