Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
We're sitting out here on the runway
Waiting for the plane to leave
And the captain says, "There'll be a short delay
Bear with me, please"
Verse 2
They gave us the usual hassle
"You can't take those guitars on board"
But the boys in the band just smiled
Heard it all before
Verse 3
And as they're starting to serve champagne
To the folks at the front of the plane
I can hear the engines roaring
We're on our way
Verse 4
And we are flying home
I feel the freedom in my soul
Flying home at last
Flying home
I've got the freedom in my soul
Verse 5
And it's four in the morning
My world is calling
Speeding through the universe tonight
Verse 6
The movie reminds of my lady
As she waits, "Where are those guys?"
Yes, it's nice to see old Butch and Sundance in the sky
Verse 7
And now the sun is beginning to rise
It's like looking down on Paradise
There's a ball of fire that's burning
Giving life
Verse 8
And we are flying home
I feel the freedom in my soul
Flying home at last
Flying home
I've got the freedom in my soul
Verse 9
And it's four in the morning
My world is calling
Speeding through the universe tonight
