Flying By

Flying By

Billy Ray Cyrus

It's bottles and bibs
Rattles and cribs
3 AM's again and again
Comfort the cry
Man it's flying by

Swings and slides
And tricycle rides
Skinning up knees
And falling outta trees
It's like it's never gonna end
But it's flying by

[Chorus]
You better hold on tight
To those little lives
In the blink of an eye
It's outta sight
I know I know to go so slow
But it's flying by

Then it's braces and boots
And bad attitudes
Boys and phones
And every change in moods
Trying times man
But you'll survive

And it's supposed to be home at ten
You're late again
Where the heck you been
When you're yelling and screaming
It don't seem like it's flying by
But it's flying by

[Chorus]

There they go on their own
Flying by
You're waving good bye with a tear in your eye
I know I know you go so slow
But it's flying by

They come back home
And what do you know
Them kids have got some kids of their own
You can't believe how much they've grown
And where the time's gone

You look in the mirror
There's gray in your hair
You're wondering how the world did that get there
It just ain't fair
How it's flying by

[Chorus]

When it's hospital beds
Last words said
Did I do enough
Holding hands
And being there for the leaving

It's a line of cars
Parked on a hill
Family and friends
Perfectly still
A prayer and a song
As they lowered down into the ground

You better hold on tight
It's a short short life
In the blink of an eye
It's outta sight
I know I know it seems so slow

Yeah it seems so slow
But it's flying by
It's flying by

It's flying by
It's flying by
Enjoy the ride
