flight 609
lyrics by Penelope Houston, music by Pat Johnson
As I fly away from you
my rocketship aims at the moon
My ears are popping
and my head's lost in a swoon
I'm so far above you
I look down at what I missed
I promised I would love you
but, it lasted as long as a kiss

Soon they'll come round with refreshments for all
and you'll be obscured by a cloud
I'm so far above you but I'm never going to fall
like I did when you whispered out loud,

"You're my angel, light and pure"
Baby want a whole lot more.
Baby want a whole lot more.

Seat me by a window now
I'll take an empty row
No stranger there to beg me
to tell everything I know
beneath me is a crazy quilt
of fields and plans and dreams
I can barely see your passion
in the flames along the seams

Soon they'll come round with refreshments for all
and you'll be exposed by a cloud
I'm so far above...

You've shrunk down to a tiny speck
right before my eyes
just a dozen miles between us
my giddiness on the rise
I'm so far above you
I look down at what I missed
I promised I would love you
but it lasted as long as a kiss

Soon they'll come round ...
