Up in the Air


"The stars will wheel forth from their daytime hiding places; and one of those lights, slightly brighter than the rest, will be my wingtip passing over."











I've spent too long away from home


Did all the things I could have done


Gone are the days of endless thrills


I know I'm not the only one





So long I'm goin'... goin' home





I saw the streets all ripe with jewels


Balconies and the laundry lines


They tried to make me welcome there


But their streets did not feel like mine





So long I'm goin'... goin' home





I want the sun to hit my face


Through oak trees in the open lot


Forget about the things you want


Be thankful for what all you got





So long I`m goin'... goin' home
