Red Sky…a song of change and overcoming fear.

We didn’t get very far into the year 2020 before we were all reminded how quickly life can change.  Not only our own individual personal lives, but the first time in over a century our entire planet changed.   Our whole world turned upside-down! The bottom fell out and each one of us felt like we were falling, not knowing where we were going to land.

“Red Sky” was released as a single in Oct 2019 along with the music video shot by skydivers in Kentucky.  I feel it accurately describes what I have felt in the past in my life where I haven’t been sure how I’d get through, but somehow by holding onto my children, I did!  Children rely on us to keep them safe but they give us a reason to keep going, a reason to survive.

And be sure to check out the video I shot at the airfield at Sky Dive Kentucky below.

Song Lyrics

Red Sky
©Francine Honey (SOCAN)

Falling through the red sky
Gonna spread my arms and fly
Falling through the red sky
Gonna spread my arms and fly
Fly through the red sky

Don’t know where I’m landing
Or when I will arrive
Been blowin’ around in the wind
I know I will survive

Repeat Chorus


I see the rocks they left me,
In the shape of a heart
I’m always flying towards them,
No matter how far we’re apart

Repeat Chorus

Bridge: Voices squealing “Catch me Momma”
Hear them howling with the wind
Always caught them but they didn’t know
they were saving me instead

From falling through the red sky,
Couldn’t spread my arms to fly
Now I’m soaring through the red sky,
Their love taught me fly
Fly through the red sky
