"Fly Away from Here"

"Fly Away from Here" is a power ballad by Aerosmith. It was the second single on their album, Just Push Play. It was written by Aerosmith songwriters Marti Frederiksen and Todd Chapman. The song is a ballad about wanting to get away or escape with a loved one. It failed to make a significant impact on the charts, but did receive some airplay on adult contemporary varieties. The song is also featured in a slideshow of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.[clarification needed]

Although not a Top 40 hit in the U.S., "Fly Away from Here" did make it to the number-one spot in Israel and stayed there for four weeks.[citation needed]

Music video[edit]

The video for the song, directed by Joseph Kahn, was very futuristic and high-tech. The video also stars the actress Jessica Biel, and Steven Tyler's youngest daughter Chelsea portraying Steven as a child in this video.
