30,000 Feet

30,000 Feet
(Harmony James  – J Albert & Sons)

Somewhere over Longreach at 30,000 ft
There’s a stranger beside me, and the dust of journey on my feet
I’m looking for a good cry, and somewhere safe that I can sleep
Staring out the window, drifting in and out of dreams
Searching for distractions in the pages of an inflight magazine
I’m in a losing battle and my mind just keeps on going there again
On every flight back through southern skies
It feels like I’m losing a friend
And I’m back to the day like I’m leaving all over again
I swear I won’t but I think I might be wistfully telling myself
Just enough lies till it feels like I’m leaving all over again
Images go rolling, like we’re in the opening scenes
Of an old home movie, back before we knew that we were free
I guess absence makes you fonder as it shows you only what you want to see
On every flight back through southern skies
It feels like I’m losing a friend
And I’m back to the day like I’m leaving all over again
I swear I won’t but I think I might be recklessly telling myself
Just enough lies till it feels like I’m leaving all over again
I’ll never see a blue like that
And nothing else will have my heart like you had it then
Since I left it there
On every flight back through southern skies
It feels like I’m losing a friend
And I’m back to the day like I’m leaving all over again
I swear I won’t but I think I might be recklessly telling myself
Just enough lies till it feels like I’m leaving all over again
And I’m back to the day like I’m leaving all over again
