Flight 454

It's 11:03 on the red-eye
500 miles behind me
And hundreds more to go

Starin' out the window
Suddenly, 11:02's
A lifetime ago

Not gonna call it love
I'm not that young,
That fire's grown cold

But all I know is there are tears in my eyes
And I'm coming home

Takin' a taxi down main street
The street lights are blurring-
Or is that just rain?

And I stopped down at the bar-
I'm not quite ready
Can't take the pain

Not gonna call it love
I'm not that drunk,
And not that bold

But all I know is there are tears in my eyes
And I'm coming home

Finally work up the courage
The cab is waiting
Time to hit the road

Carryin' the world on my shoulders
But this old suitcase
Ain't a heavy load

Not gonna call it love
My heart is yours,
You already know

But all I know is there are tears in my eyes
You're waiting for me
And I'm coming home

**Author's Note** I imagine this song having a kind of Bruce Springsteen type vibe. BTW, I've haven't been on a plane since I was a toddler.
