The Story Behind "Fly Away"



Remixed by David Morales, it starts off very mid-tempo, before breaking out into an up-tempo song with a brilliant dance beat. It was based on the Elton John song "Skyline Pigeon". On the song's lyrics, Carey comments "It was '97 and I was leaving my marriage (to Tommy Mottola) which encompassed my life” declared the diva.

It was a moderate success on charts that airplay-only singles were allowed to enter. It did not appear on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart because it was not issued as a commercial single in the United States. It was credited “Written By Carey, John, Morales, Taupin”.

Lyrics:

"Don't be afraid to fly
Spread your wings
Open up the door
So much more outside

Don't be afraid to fly
Come spread your wings
And just fly
Come spread your wings
And you'll see it's alright to
Fly, just fly,
Don't be afraid
Don't let your spirit die

She said,
Spread your wings and prepare to fly
For you have become a butterfly
Spread your wings and prepare to fly
For you have become a butterfly
Don't be afraid
Don't be afraid
Don't be afraid to fly
Fly, so much more outside
Come spread your wings and just fly into the sun
Fly..

Don't be afraid to fly
Don't be afraid to just fly
You..
Have become a butterfly
Don't be afraid to just fly
How to fly
Oh, hey, fly
You have become a butterfly
Fly away
Butterfly

Ooh, oh, ooh
Butterfly, free to fly, butterfly
Oh, hey
Butterfly
Spread your wings and prepare to fly
For you have become a butterfly
Spread your wings and prepare to fly
For you have become a butterfly

Fly away (butterfly)
Fly away (butterfly)
Fly away (butterfly)
Fly
Butterfly
