Calm to your eyes
Underneath stormy skies
Caught up inside
The maelstrom

Then, '45
London burned, our ally
Bombed to the ground
Feels like that now

I want wings
Made of steel
I want you to know how I feel
No one's gonna stop this air raid

I'll be home by daybreak

Now spotlights glow
Shots ring out
From below
Suddenly

Everything is topsy-turvy
All the dials and gauges blurry
Don't you worry
Everything is fine as long as

I've got wings
Made of steel
I want you to know how I feel
No one's gonna stop this air raid

Oh tear me apart
If you can
I'll be welcome as a hero when I land
No one's gonna stop this air raid

I'll be home by daybreak

Throttle forward
Shoulders back
Straight into
The devil's lap

Instruments
All ignored
Showing red
Across the board

Cockpit glass
Turning black
Only serves
To hide the cracks

Landing wheels
Stripped away
Won't be needing
Them today

(Welcomed as a hero)

Fuselage
White hot seared
Every marking
Disappeared

Right on target
Center stage
My objective
Now in range

Kiss your picture
Keep it close
Keeps me safer
Than you know

Don't worry darling
Worry darling
I'll be home by daybreak
