Let's see how far I'm off


O(Fly On)

A flock of birds
Harboring/hovering above
Just a flock of birds
(How I think of love? )

And I always
Look up to the sky
And before the dawn
And still I always
Sometimes they (all?)
Sometimes they are all gone

A flock of birds
Harboring above
(In a smoke of time?)
(Rise?)
(Following them up?)
Still I always
Look up to the sky
(Breathe before the dawn?)
As they fly away
(The minute they arrive?)
Next you know they are gone
Fly on

A review of one of the LA secret shows said that O had the lyric "Maybe one day, I’ll fly next to you"

I didn't hear that. Maybe that's in another verse. We only heard about 2-3 verses.

It starts with this IMHO :)

A flock of birds
Hovering above
Just a flock of birds
Is how you think of love

And I always
Look up to the sky
Pray before the dawn
And I always

Sometimes they arrive
Sometimes they are gone
Fly on

A flock of birds
Hovering above
In a smoke of time, rise (unsure)
Following them up

Still I always
Look up to the sky
Pray before the dawn
As they fly away

One minute they arrive
Next you know they're gone
Fly on




I thought the unsure part was "In unspoken terms" but putting on headphones doesn't sound like it anymore

According to Zane's interview, it has:

-This song, O... is... you said I'd be very kind. This isn't just a stunning record.
-Thanks man
-And lyrically you've just nailed it.
-Thank you

I'd go for:

A flock of birds
Hovering above
Just a flock of birds
It's how you think of love

And I always
Look up to the sky
And before the dawn
Still I always
Sometimes they arrive
Sometimes they are gone
Fly on

A flock of birds
Harboring above
(In a smoke of time?)
Rise
Following them up
Still I always
Look up to the sky
Breathe before the dawn
As they fly away
One minute they arrive
Next you know they are gone
Fly on

Agreed on the first verse. I'm not convinced about "And/Breathe" before the dawn, I'd say it's "Pray" in the third verse, just as jc90 wrote.

Agreed on both ;) Pray makes more sense

The TRACK has, yes.

That's how I understand it in any case. :)

O (Fly On)

A flock of birds
Hovering above
Just a flock of birds
That's how you think of love

And I always
Look up to the sky
Pray before the dawn
'Cause they fly always
Sometimes they arrive
Sometimes they are gone
They fly on

A flock of birds
Hovering above
Into smoke i'm turned and rise
Following them up

Still I always
Look up to the sky
Pray before the dawn
'Cause they fly away
One minute they arrive
Next you know they're gone
They fly on
Fly on

So fly on, ride through
Maybe one day i'll fly next to you
So fly on, ride through
Maybe one day i'll fly next to you
Fly on

O DON'T EVER LET GO​

Man that song is beautiful . I think he did exactly what his intentions for the song were . Unconditional love. The end is so hopeful. I just can't wait to hear this song as the ending to this album .

I was waiting for this. Thanks for the official lyrics. This song is sad as hell. I hope he flies next to her someday! :(

So "O" is not precisely an instrumental but rather a track where Chris sings: "Don't ever let go". Right?
