“Fly Away is chasing your dreams, achieving your goals and the realities that come with them,” said Tones & I. “As a busker I obviously had bigger dreams. However, this song is inspired by by the way I thought I would feel compared to how I really feel. I think it’s very powerful, at least for me. It’s about real happiness and what we think we do have to be happy about what we really want. The truth is, we only want something because we think it will make us happy, but it’s never that easy. “
