We're sitting out here on the runway
And the captain says, "There'll be a short delay

"You can't take those guitars on board"
Heard it all before
And as they're starting to serve champagne
I can hear the engines roaring

I feel the freedom in my soul
Flying home

My world is calling

As she waits, "Where are those guys?"

It's like looking down on Paradise
Giving life
And we are flying home
Flying home at last
I've got the freedom in my soul
And it's four in the morning
Speeding through the universe tonight
