8AM, he woke up alone.
Oh, whoa-oh.
Stayed up, all night, waiting, by the, phone.
Oh, whoa-oh.
She said, she was, gonna call by, six o’ clock so they could hang out all night.
Ten till five, he was dressed and ready to go.
Oh, whoa-oh.
He laid there underneath the sheets, wishing he could go back to sleep.
But he had to get ready to go,
‘Cause at twelve, his plane was gonna leave,
At the age of 17…

She knew he was leaving,
But she didn’t care, enough to,
Show up, or say goodbye.
And now he’s leaving;
It’s time to fly.
He was leaving,
But she didn’t care, enough to,
Show up, or say goodbye.
But now he’s leaving;
It’s time to fly.
Oh…

Out of her life.

[musical break]

His lonely flight, took so long.
And on, that night, he wrote, this song.

She knew he was leaving,
But she didn’t care, enough to,
Show up, or say goodbye.
And now he’s leaving;
It’s time.
She knew he was leaving,
But she didn’t care, enough to,
Show up, or say goodbye.
But now he’s leaving;
It’s time to fly.
