Fly By Night

Original Lyrics

Why try? I know why
This 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
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
Moonrise, thoughtful eyes
Staring back at me from the window beside
No fright or hindsight
Leaving behind that empty feeling inside
Start a new chapter, I find what I’m after
Is changing every day
The change of a season’s enough of a reason
To want to get away
Quiet and pensive, my thoughts apprehensive
The hours drift away
Leaving my homeland, playing a lone hand
My life begins today
