Amelia

Ballad

© 1991, 1993, 2000

A great inspiration for all of us girls and boys. I do believe that she was a determined and skilled pilot. The fact that she was a woman is not that important - at least to me. I think it is better to see folks in terms of being a person not this or that.

I have read several accounts of her life. Keep in mind (please) that the song is inspired by her life and is not meant to be taken literally.

As to her fate: I doubt we will know what really happened to her. And I am not sure it matters. She knew and accepted the dangers of her desire. And, as the song indicates, I think Amelia and Fred died looking for a safe place to land. Amelia, Fred, fly on.
She soars through the sky:
Her eye on horizon.
She soars through the sky:
Over green and blue.
She soars through the sky:
Never a fear for what she'll find;
Never a fear for the loss of time.

He falls from the sky,
Lands in the meadow.
A crowd of people standing by
They run to him.
They say 'How can you go
Up into the sky?
Where one mistake and
You will die?'

A little girl stands in the crowd
Her eyes full of wonder.
She knows
That she will go
Up into the sky:
Where one mistake and
She will die.

And the years go by
She grows strong and tall.
And she learns to fly:
The miles roll by.
And she falls in love
She takes his hand.
And he knows she will fly
He just hopes she'll always find
A safe place to land

Now the ocean and the sky
They stretch out before her.
Hours have gone by
Since the place she was to land.
She looks at the man
In the cabin behind her.
She knows
That she will find
A place to land.
Its got to be
Close at hand.

A little girl stands in the crowd
Her eyes full of wonder.
She knows
That she will go
Up into the sky:
Where one mistake and
She will die.
