Fly is a song by Canadian recording artist Avril Lavigne, released on April 16, 2015 by the Special Olympics. Avril released the song as a charity single for The Avril Lavigne Foundation to support the 2015 Special Olympics World Summer Games. The song was written by Lavigne, Chad Kroeger and David Hodges.

Background Edit

"Fly" was written during the recording sessions for Lavigne's fifth studio album, Avril Lavigne. The song was written and recorded by Lavigne, Kroeger and Hodges in 2012 with the intention of it being on the album, but it didn't make the final cut. Lavigne later mentioned the song in interviews, and after suggestion from her fanbase, she chose to release the song as a charity single. Lyrically, the song sings about overcoming any obstacles someone might face. Originally, the song had a more pop production but Lavigne scrapped it for a more stripped-down, vocal-driven version. According to Lavigne, the song is composed of a "piano, orchestra and kick drum."

Music video Edit

The music video for the song premiered on Good Morning America on April 16, 2015. The video shows various clips from the Special Olympics and moments of Lavigne recording the song.

Lyrics Edit

There's a light inside all of us
It's never hiding you just have to light it
It's the one thing that you got to trust
It's like a diamond, you just have to find it

So if you ever feel like giving up
Yeah, let's remember that.. we were all meant to fly

Spread your wings, across the universe
It's your time to, it's your time to shine
There's a light inside all of us
Soon, you'll find that it's your time to fly
Your time to fly

A little happy is all it ever takes
Somebody else just tell you that it's worth fighting
A single step becomes a leap a faith
That's when you realize just starting flying

So, don't you ever say you're giving up?
No, there's no looking back... cause we are all meant to fly

Spread your wings, across the universe
It's your time to, it's your time to shine
There's a light inside all of us
Soon, you'll find that it's your time to fly
It's your time to fly

Just reach up, don't give up
Until you touch the sky
Just reach up, don't give up
Until you feel 'alized (realized)

That we are all meant to fly

Spread your wings, across the universe
It's your time to, it's your time to shine
There's a light inside all of us
Soon, you'll find that it's your time to fly, fly

It's your time to, it's your time to shine, shine
Soon, you'll find that it's your time to fly

Spread your wings, across the universe
It's your time to, it's your time to shine
There's a light inside all of us
Soon, you'll find that it's your time to fly
