Fly Too High (Written/recorded for the motion picture Foxes)

Janis Ian/Giorgio Moroder

Anonymous autonomous
will likely get the best of us yet
Before you disappear
if you can lend me half an ear I'll regret
If i treat you like a number
it's because i can't remember your name
so have another cigarette
and help me to forget why I came

Run too fast, fly too high
Run too fast, fly too high

On dark & lonely nights
I'm only right
when things are bright on the floor
Dancing & romancing
Gallivanting with a handsome I score
If you don't believe me you should
see me when I'm ready to score
I'll lose my concentration
on a new infatuation I'm sure

Run too fast, fly too high
Run too fast, fly too high
Got no past, no goodbye
Run too fast, fly too high

Hanging around on the infield,
what do you steal
but another feel at the top
Making believe in the long run
when a shotgun
is the way to get out of the shop
Hang tail in a new jail
Go bail, you can dance until you drop
There's no fool like an old fool
in a new school – you just can't stop

Run too fast, fly too high
Run too fast, fly too high
Got no past, no goodbye
Run too fast, fly too high
