We were two lonely travellers in the sky that night,
Two lonely travellers high flying,
Alone in the night on an endless flight
Killing time with polite conversation,
Killing time in your shy, hesitating way,
Killing time, killing my isolation
Two lonely travellers breaking ice
By opening up a few old back pages.

We were two golden eagles in the sky today,
Two golden eagles high flying
Who swept through the air
To a secret lair
Flying free, slowly wheeling and gliding,
Flying free on the sea and the high plateau,
Flying free on the breeze without trying.

Two lonely travellers breaking ice
By opening up a few old back pages
And letting secrets out of their cages
But wanting to remain perfect strangers.

'Cos I was on a night flight
Floating above the world.
Yes it was the moonlight
Painting the wings in pearl
High above the clouds,
High above the world.

We were two lonely travellers in the sky that night,
Two lonely travellers high flying,
Alone in the night on an endless flight
Killing time with polite conversation,
Killing time in your shy hesitating way,
Killing time, killing my isolation

Two lonely travellers breaking ice
By opening up a few old back pages
And letting secrets out of their cages
But wanting to remain perfect strangers.

Cos I was on a night flight
Floating above the world.
Yes it was the moonlight
Painting the wings in pearl
High above the clouds,
High above the world.

Yes I was on a night flight
Floating above the world,
I could see the starlight
Silver a gypsy girl
High above the clouds,
High above the world.

Yes I was on a night flight
Floating above the world,
[etc]
