Fly lyrics

Why Fly?

Because Sin Wagon wouldn't be "appropriate" and O.K the obvious: We're chicks, chicks have wings, chicks learn to fly, these chicks racked up frequent flyer miles, but if you would allow three blondes to take a quick dive into the deep end (one hour after eating of course) here goes. Martie came into the studio (late as usual) and said, "How about FLY?" We all three knew from that moment on it had to be the name.

When the album was completed we were surprised too by how many references to "fly" there actaully are. It wasn't until later that all the meanings surfaced. We've always wanted our albums to be a snapshot in time, a look into our lives. We felt "I'm Gonna Let Him Fly" put Natalie's need to fly on her own into words, and "Fly this girl as high as you can" (Cowboy Take Me Away) spoke of emily finally finding true love. The most important of all is our career taking flight. Thanks to the following people for helping us fly:

The fans for inspiring us to continue our journey through the wide open spaces; country radio for knowing a good thing when you hear it (he, he) - we truly know what you have done for our career.
