Fun Home Musical - Flying Away (Finale) Lyrics

"Flying Away" is a song from the Broadway Musical "Fun Home" performed by Beth Malone (Alison), Emily Skeggs (Medium Alison) & Sydney Lucas (Small Alison).

ALISON:
Daddy, comma,
Hey, Daddy, come here, okay, question mark? I need you.

SMALL ALISON:
Daddy, hey, Daddy, come here, okay? I need you.

MEDIUM ALISON:
At the light, at the light, at the light, at the light.

ALISON:
What are you doing, comma,
I said come here.
You need to do what I tell you to do.

SMALL ALISON:
What are you doing?
I said come here!
You need to do what I tell you to do.
Listen to me!
Daddy, come here.
Hey, right here, right now!
You're making me mad.
Listen to me,
Listen to me.
Listen to me.

MEDIUM ALISON:
At the light. How does it feel to know

SMALL ALISON:
I want to play airplane.

MEDIUM ALISON:
That you and I

SMALL ALISON:
I want to play airplane.

MEDIUM ALISON:
That you and I

SMALL ALISON:
I want to play airplane.

ALISON:
I want to put my arms out and fly.

SMALL ALISON:
Like the Red Baron in a Sopwith Camel!

MEDIUM ALISON:
I was like you.

SMALL ALISON:
No, wait. Like Superman!

ALISON:
Up in the sky,

MEDIUM ALISON:
Say something!

ALISON:
Til I can see all of Pennsylvania.

MEDIUM ALISON:
Say something!

SMALL ALISON:
Put your feet here like this.
Daddy, do what I say.

ALISON:
There you aren't dead.

SMALL ALISON:
Take my hand, give me yours.
Bend your knees– not that way.

ALISON:
There you are.

SMALL ALISON:
When I say go, you start pushing me up. Okay.

MEDIUM ALISON:
Don't let go yet.

ALISON:
Don't let go yet.

SMALL ALISON:
Okay, higher, just a little.

ALISON:
And now I'm flying away.

MEDIUM ALISON:
Look at me fly away.

SMALL ALISON:
In my wristband and cape.

ALL THREE:
Fly up so high.

SMALL ALISON:
Our house is over there,
And there's our car.
The Fun Home, I see it.
I'm up so far!
Daddy, there's your school!
And there's Grandma's house.
There's Uncle Pete's farm.

MEDIUM ALISON:
So far.

ALL THREE:
I can see all of Pennsylvania.
I can see all of Pennsylvania. Fly away.

SMALL ALISON:
This is the best game! Up in the air!

ALISON:
A picture of my father

SMALL ALISON:
And I don't even care that it pushes my stomach in.

ALISON:
Made of little marks.

ALL THREE:
Fly up so high.
Fly up so high.
Fly up so high.

SMALL ALISON:
I can see all of Pennsylvania.

ALISON [spoken]:
Caption: Every so often there was a rare moment of perfect balance when I soared above him.
