Dm  G  4x


[Verse]
Dm
Mama, don't you cry
G
Don't you worry
Dm                     G
I cannot stay here any longer
Dm                       G
The time has come to find a distant calling
Dm                          G
That only seems to get much stronger


[Pre-chorus]
F                    A
And I know it's hard
                           G
To see the one you come to lean on make his way

Far beyond the womb
     F       C
But, I can't stay


[Chorus]
  Dm
I won't stop running
                 G
I'm only getting closer
                               Dm   G
To getting off the ground this time
     Dm                               G
The sky is calling, the wind is at my shoulders
                              Dm  G
Won't let this chance pass me by
                  Dm
Mama, I'm bent to fly

[Verse]
Dm
Remember yesterday
G
Before the storm
Dm                       G
Before the innocence was lost
Dm                     G
I promised I would stay for evermore
Dm                            G
But every boy, in time, moves on


[Pre-chorus]
F                              A
Your wounds will heal someday
                      G
This I know, but I am restless and so torn
      A#                F  C
Mama, I can't stay here anymore


[Chorus]
  Dm
I won't stop running
                 G
I'm only getting closer
                               Dm   G
To getting off the ground this time
    Dm                                G
The sky is calling, the wind is at my shoulders
                              Dm    G
Won't let this chance pass me by
                  A
Mama, I'm bent to fly


[Bridge]

A perfect storm is rising

Gotta say my last goodbye

I'm only getting closer

But mama, I'm bent to fly, oh, oh
