NAZARETH


This Flight Tonight Lyrics

(copyright 1971 joni mitchell pub. corp.)


"Look out the left," the captain said
"The lights down there, that's where we'll land"
Saw a falling star burning
High above the Las Vegas sand.

It wasn't the one that you gave to me
That night down south between the trailers
Not the early one that you wish upon
Not the northern one that guides in the sailors.

You've got that touch so gentle and sweet
But you've got that look so critical
Can't talk to you babe you know I get so weak
Sometimes I think that love is just mythical.

Up there's a heaven, down there's a town
Blackness everywhere any little lights shine
Blackness, blackness draggin' me down
Come on light a candle in this heart of mine.

Starbright, starbright, you've got the lovin' that I like
Turn this crazy bird around
Should not have got on this flight tonight.

I'm drinkin' sweet champagne, got the headphones up high
Can't numb you, can't drum you out of my mind
They're singin', "Goodbye baby,
Baby bye-bye.
Ooh! Love is blind."

Up go the flaps, down go the wheels
Hope you got your heat turned on, baby
Hope they've finally fixed your automobile
Hope it's better when we meet again, babe.

Starbright, starbright, you've got the lovin' that I like
Turn this crazy bird around
Should not have got on this flight tonight
Should not have got on this flight tonight.
