Oh, Janey's flying
She got up from her seat, spread her arms and took a big leap,
And now, now Janey's flying.

And now's shes floating around up there in the air,
Completely unaware, that it's impossible
And now she's cruising down the street
Except she's about ten feet above it all,
She's passing cars and bicycles
Cuz she can go fast, I hope she can last
I'm afraid she might fall -- it's why I don't call
And I bet I look real small from up there, real small

Ooh here's what she done for me, she touched my heart
She touched my heart for me, and tore me apart

Oh, Janey's flying
There she goes, I bet she don't even know how unkind it was
to leave me behind, here on the ground,
while she gets to be heaven-bound
Oh but looks here she comes, she's giving me a smile and a fly-by
but i think it means goodbye


Oh, Janey's flying
I bet she's going 50-miles an hour
She's passing buildings and towers
Dodging clouds and dodging planes
And Lord, she looks like one of them angels

Jon Neufeld (Black Prairie) and Mike Danner round out the line-up of this passionate demi-prog protest-folk outfit. ... more
