One lost friend said one day
Protect direction that you found
Now I’m 30 000 feet up
Shaken violently around

Nobody knows me that well,
That’s just the way it’s gotta be
This flight attendant’s got me sold
I wanna tell her everything about me

And she could come with me,
Through the days and weeks and months and
passin years

long gone
lost in flight
I should’ve never of leaved ya
I think you knew that I might
Tonight I miss my babe
And the midnight song will sing
I can’t go back now
And the sunset shines like the summer rains

This bullshit airline’s got me down
It’s no earthly good to me
Just get me where I need to go
kerisble? or Mexico
The national post front page said
George W. Bush is dead
And the jays beat the reds
10 million people broken-hearted

disappear for love
Through the days and weeks and months and
passin years

long gone
lost in flight
I should’ve never of leaved ya
I think you knew that I might
Tonight I miss my babe
And the midnight song will sing
I can’t go back now
And the sunset shines like the summer rains (x4)

And the song in my head sings

    General CommentPretty sure it's "Cozumel, Mexico"

    And I've always heard the last line of the chorus as "And the sunset shines off the silver wings". Which would make it into an awesome reference to a Merle Haggard song.

    General CommentI believe that he is singing "and the sunset shines off the silver wings" since throughout the song he seems to be on an airplane
