Beautiful Fledglings

This song is a co-write with Nic Yown. I wrote the first two verses and chorus for Nic at time his kids were moving out and on. He added the last verse and made it a song he sang at his daughter's wedding.

Little babies little lives
Start the journey of new life
Polly wogs grow legs and feet
And leave the water sweet

It’s in the air fresh and new
And no matter what they do
With new wings made to fly
Make good with all they try

Fledglings drop from the nest
Enter life's next true test
What they just have to do
Fly off on sky so blue
Fly off on sky so blue

When out on the ledge
So close to the edge
Remember what was said
Keep it all in your head

Take the time it takes
Don't rush the life you make
be real, and never fake
Live life for your own sake

Fledglings drop from the nest
Enter life's next true test
What they just have to do
Fly off on sky so blue
Fly off on sky so blue

As you Soar into the sky
I look at you and sigh
I’ll try hard not to cry
This will not be good bye

A chapter’s come to an end
As you turn around the bend
My child and my friend
Hold on to the love I send

Fledglings drop from the nest
Enter life's next true test
What they just have to do
Fly off on sky so blue
Fly off on sky so blue
