I wrote this track for my niece Fern as I wanted to send her something on her birthday when I couldn't see her.
She was meant to be going travelling this summer before starting University in September. I wanted her to go but a big part of me really didn't! I have always not been ready for her to grow up!

Now that she can't go and her whole world, like all of ours, is turned on its head I would do anything to help her follow her dream and have her on her way. This is what this little song is all about.


We built your nest in the tallest tree, we did not stop to think
What would happen if you tried to fly, before you grew out your wings
So I decided it's for the best, always to keep you in the nest

Now your shoes are made of bricks, and like those planes your grounded
Everydays unfolding nothing like you planned it

Oh let me be the first to take you to the runway
We'll go in the fast lane
promise we wont be late
Let me the first to let you go make your mistakes.
