"Mighty Wings" as written by and Faltermeyer/spiro....
It's just a ball of dust
Underneath my feet
It rolls around the sun
Doesn't mean that much to me

I take a chance on the edge of life
Just like all the rest
I look inside and dig it out
'Cause there's no points for second best

There's a raging fire in my heart tonight
Growing higher and higher in my soul
There's a raging fire in the sky tonight
I want to ride on the silver dove
Far into the night

'Til I make you take me
On your mighty wings
Make you take me
On your mighty wings across the sky
Take me on your mighty wings
Take me on your mighty wings tonight

With just a little luck
A little cold blue steel
I cut the night like a razor blade
'Til I feel the way I want to feel

There's a raging fire in my heart tonight
Growing higher and higher in my soul
There's a raging fire in the sky tonight
I want to ride on the silver dove
Far into the night

'Til I make you take me
On your mighty wings
Make you take me
On your mighty wings across the sky
Take me on your mighty wings
Take me on your mighty wings tonight

Oh, make you take me
On your mighty wings
Make you take me
On your mighty wings across the sky

Take me on your mighty wings
Take me on your mighty wings tonight
On your mighty wings

Make you take me
On your mighty wings across the sky

    General CommentThis is the greatest CT song ever, why no one has commented on it, baffles me completely. This song is on Top Gun, probably what it is most famous for being on. I don't know if it was made for the movie like some of the other songs were...namely the ones by Kenny Loggins.

    General CommentIt's really about the burning passion to fly. "There's a raging fire in my heart tonight". This is saying that the passion to fly is figuratively burning inside the aviator heart. This is from the perspective of a pilot
