Flying in the Dark

escaping
pain and pity
i lit out
for the city
and ran
away from home
sometimes a body
gotta roam

I just wanted to be free
Thought I had to make a mark
But this city ain’t for me
Flying home in the dark

enchanted
by the light
i didn’t foresee
an endless night
had enough of
snow and ice
going back where
folks are nice

Won’t you please deliver me
From all the jackals and the sharks
Lord knows this city ain’t for me
Flying home in the dark
