NO FLIGHT, TONIGHT
Lyrics
The message said 'urgent
- be quick as you can'
'There's been a collision'.
My nightmare began.
I crawled to the airport,
two hours in a jam,
Eventually made it,
I parked up and ran...
'NO FLIGHT, TONIGHT'
THE MESSAGE BOARD SAID,
WISHED I COULD GROW WINGS INSTEAD.
The chapel was empty,
I fell to my knees,
For once in my lifetime,
I cried 'Help me, please.'
My eyes misting over,
my tears flowing free,
Then I saw an angel,
she reached out to me.
'NO FLIGHT, TONIGHT'
THE MESSAGE BOARD SAID,
WISHED I COULD GROW WINGS INSTEAD.
'NO FLIGHT, TONIGHT'
'BAD WEATHER', I HEARD,
WISHED I COULD FLY LIKE A BIRD.
(instrumental break)
'NO FLIGHT, TONIGHT'
THE MESSAGE BOARD SAID,
WISHED I COULD GROW WINGS INSTEAD.
'NO FLIGHT, TONIGHT'
'BAD WEATHER', I HEARD,
WISHED I COULD FLY LIKE A BIRD.
A miracle happened,
next morning, news came
She made a recovery,
she whispered my name.
