"Outbound Plane" as written by Nanci Griffith and Tom Russell....
Don't want to be standing here
With this ticket for this outbound plane
Cause I've been here before
And somehow this doesn't feel the same

Talk is cheap so we could talk all night long
We may never figure out just where your love went wrong

Don't want to be standing here
And I ain't gonna want to be talking here
And I ain't gonna really care who's to blame
If love won't fly out on its own free will
It's going to catch that outbound plane

The old folks say that love's not forever any more
Because these young people walk away from love alone to pace the floor
Young or old guys say that love is still the same
And you may walk away from love but you'll fall head and heels again

Two lonely hearts in this airport knowing
Neither cares where that other heart is going

That frown your wearing's just your halo turned upside down
Where is the laughter we once shared back in the lost and found?
These broken wings are gonna leave me here to stand my ground
And you can have this ticket to that lonely plane that's flying outside
