Hathaway, Donny - Flying Easy Lyrics




We're flying high on a velvet sky,
With the wind on our wings
Climbing easily on the breeze

We're flying easy and we do just what we please
we drink the breezes as we drink wine,and the nectar is sweet
Now the feeling we have is fun

We're flying easy drifting on a summer breeze
The trip is smooth and we gently glide
We ride the rainbow and we see to a tee
how happy we can be

We gather gold from the evening sun
And it's heavenly hues
And we don't have a thing to lose

We're flying easy and we do just what we choose

The trip is smooth and we gently glide
We ride the rainbow and we see to a tee
How happy it can be to be free

We float and there is no thought of time
Cause were singing of love
And the pleasure is so devine

We're flying easy not a worry on our mind
We're flying easy not a worry on our mind
We're flying easy on a breeze
Flying, flying flying

Hathaway, Donny Flying Easy Comments
  1. hermeto verocai

    this song is a miracle

  2. Antonio Barbosa

    This song must be soooo difficult to play as a musician. There are so many levels of difficulty in this song. The pacing, the breaks, the chord shifts.. freaking amazing. Because they make it sound so fluid and easy. And Donny sings it so easily. Beyond genius.

  3. Phillip Conley

    One of the things I loved about Donny Hathaway was his ability to put SO MUCH into a song. For instance, this song starts in 5/4 time, switches back and forth from 4/4 to 3/4 throughout the song, then ends in 3/4. It has non traditional chord progressions, a samba rhythm at times, strings, brass, that RHODES, eclectic lyrics, no background vocals at all, yet is smooth and “full” sounding. He was a pure genius. My favorite r&b artist of all time.

  11. Jordan Rios

    Probably my favorite Donny Hathaway song.

  12. ronrico629

    Back when I used to do a lot of traveling (campaign work) for the DNC, I made sure to have this tune on my MP3 player......whenever I was flying in the skies, across America.
    This is just perfect to hear, when you're up there at 35,000 feet/

  13. The Good Deacon

    Sounds like Magic

  14. sherlamcour

    This would have been a great commercial jingle for an airline. Donny Hathaway is musical genius personified, gone way too soon at 33.

    Cynthia Diane Lowe

    It was, in fact, originally written and commissioned as a prospective commercial jingle for an airline! I believe it was for United Airlines. When the airline decided not to use it, after all, Donny recorded it for himself--the rest is history.

    Thank you Love112489 for posting this song. I first heard this song when I was 14, I was amazed just like I am today. Donny Hathaway was a very special Artist gone too soon. His voice and his playing being a keyboardist myself very inspiring. This was creative music with lyrics that was not distasteful or disrespectful.This kind of music needs to come back. RIP Donny and may your music and soul live forever! Beautiful Song!

  26. Mark Clark

    You know it's very rare that a young person now a days can articulate on such music, I play piano not professionally but for self satisfaction, and to adopt this kind of music to you're liking is a BLESSING.

  27. Mark Clark

    Jeffrey Robinson
