5 Seconds Of Summer – Fly Away lyrics

[Verse 1: Calum]
Counting down these seconds, jumping off these fences
Finding our new place to start again
The cracks in the sidewalk, I'm over all the small talk
Taking off like fire in the wind

[Pre-Chorus: Calum]
I won't waste another day wishing this would fade away
Running, we're not looking back

[Chorus: All & Luke]
I want a little bit of California
With a little bit of London sky
I wanna take my heart to the end of the world
And fly away tonight
I want a little bit of open ocean
With a New York state of mind
I wanna take my heart to the end of the world
And fly away, fly away tonight
Fly away tonight
Fly away tonight

[Verse 2: Michael]
A never ending replay with memories I can't erase
I see the best of times in front of me
Now I'm off to paradise, swore I'll never fight
Say goodbye to pain and misery

[Pre-Chorus: Michael]
I won't waste another day wishing this would fade away
Running, we're not looking back

[Chorus: All]
I want a little bit of California
With a little bit of London sky
I wanna take my heart to the end of the world
And fly away tonight
I want a little bit of open ocean
With a New York state of mind
I wanna take my heart to the end of the world
And fly away, fly away tonight

[Bridge: Luke & Calum]
I won't waste another day wishing this would fade away
I won't waste another day wishing this would fade away
Counting down the seconds, always second guessing
I'm dreaming of a place to start again

[Chorus: All]
I want a little bit of California
With a little bit of London sky
I wanna take my heart to the end of the world
And fly away tonight
I want a little bit of open ocean
With a New York state of mind
I wanna take my heart to the end of the world
And fly away, fly away tonight

    To me, this song is about starting again. You want to leave and begin something new; you keep talking about going, but you never do. This song is that last breathe you take before you finally leave. You're off to a better place where you'll make so many memories and be the happiest version of yourself. Sometimes the decision to leave somewhere is difficult, but you have to take that chance to be a better you. You can't keep wishing that you'd be happy where you are.

    You don't have to be off to a new physical place. It could also be a place in your mind. You have to let go of all the bullshit that keeps bringing you down and find your own inner paradise. Either way, this song is beautiful and I think the band really depicted how a lot of us feel. Sometimes you just need to "fly away".

    To me this song is about wanting to starting all over and forgetting the bad times. The boys want to have a good time in life. But they don't want to forget to the good memories. They just want to have a good life and have a fun time living. They want to fly and forget about heartbreak. They are talking about life and how we wish we could be in two places at once by the lyric I want a little bit of California with a little bit of London sky.
