about

I wrote the Ravens Fly (21) in several hours during one of those very rare moments (for songwriters) the words were coming so fast that I was having a hard time getting them on the paper. The Ravens Fly is dedicated to all military service personnel and their families. Thank you for your sacrifice! On a personal level this song is in memory of SGT William Greenleaf, a family member and veteran of Afghanistan: 4/15/1984 to 6/4/2012.

lyrics

Lyrics

DEATH WAITS FOR ME LIKE A SERPENT IN THE SEA.
I’VE GOT TO FIND MY WAY HOME.
DANGER ABOUNDS, I HEAR THE GUN FIRE SOUNDS.
I FEEL THE BEAT OF MY HEART!

TWENTY-ONE DON’T WANT TO DIE.
TWENTY-ONE I SEARCH THE SKY.
TWENTY-ONE I’VE GOT TO GET BACK HOME.

ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, AS I KICK DOWN THE DOOR.
I SMELL THE FEAR IN THE NIGHT.
I SEE THEIR EYES AND THE LOOK OF SURPRISE.
I WONDER WHAT THEY THINK OF ME.

TWENTY-ONE DON’T WANT TO DIE.
TWENTY- ONE I SEARCH THE SKY.
TWENTY-ONE I’VE GOT TO GET BACK HOME.

A WARRIOR’S PRIDE THAT WE CARRY DEEP INSIDE,
I DO NOT WANT TO LOSE.
POLITCIANS TALK, BUT THEY DON’T WALK THE WALK
THAT I SEE EVERYDAY.

TWENTY-ONE DON’T WANT TO DIE.
TWENTY- ONE I SEARCH THE SKY.
TWENTY-ONE I’VE GOT TO GET BACK HOME.

TWENTY-ONE DON’T WANT TO DIE.
TWENTY-ONE THE RAVENS FLY.
TWENTY-ONE I’VE GOT TO GET BACK... HOME... HOME...
