"Fly by Night" is the fifth song from Rush's second album Fly by Night. The music was written by Geddy Lee and the lyrics were penned by Neil Peart. Peart wrote this song about his first trip away from home. In 1971, at 18 years old, he left behind his small-town Canadian life and flew to England. This was a major turning point in his life.
It was released as a single in May 1975, but despite nearly becoming their first hit in the United Kingdom, it failed to chart.
