Prologue: "Airport scurry flurry faces Parade of passers by People going many places With a smile or just a sigh Waiting waiting pass the time Another cigarette Get in line - gate thirty-nine The time is not here yet..."
Why try? I know why The feeling inside me says it's time I was gone Clear head, new life ahead I want to be king now not just one more pawn
[Chorus:] Fly by night, away from here Change my life again Fly by night goodbye my dear My ship isn't coming and I just can't pretend
Moon rise, thoughtful eyes Staring back at me from the window beside No fright or hindsight Leaving behind that empty feeling inside
Start a new chapter Find what I'm after It's changing every day The change of a season Is enough of a reason To want to get away
The other part: Quiet and pensive My thoughts apprehensive The hours drift away Leaving my homeland Playing a lone hand My life begins today
