Look up in the sky
There's a speck that's flying by
Red lights, and I don't know why
Seems that I spend most of my time
Watching the planes go by
The windows open and the curtains blow
'Round my room where the lights are low
I stand in darkness and watch the stars
Wondering just how far away you are from me
I'm out of here, you're somewhere
Somewhere out there too far from me
And I want it to be
Like it was when the summer was here
Instead of just sitting here
Watching the planes go by
The street lamp look lonely
I wonder, I wonder if he feels like me
With no one to love him, and no one to talk to
When she's out there living
Without thinking of me
Come back baby, come back
Let me pray that one day
That those planes in the sky
Will be bringing you back home to me
Back to me, oh I need you back home with me
