"Takeoffs and Landings" - Lyrics and Music: Kristopher Roe

On this coldest of January nights,
we'll drive out past the runway,
and watch the planes go flying by.
The runway lights are the deepest blue
Like the colors of your eyes,
So close them tight and kiss me one last time.

If you could go anywhere right now, where would you go,
and would you miss me when you get there?
There's no place that I would rather be.

Please don't let me, go falling from the sky,
This fasten seatbelt sign just needs to go out.
If only you could be, right here by my side,
Home wouldn't seem so far from here.

Passport, customs, carry-on, remember
to shut off all of your electronic devices.
Fell asleep on Tuesday, woke up Monday afternoon
I slept right through your international dateline.

If you could go anywhere right now,
Where would you go,
and would you miss me when you get there?
There's no place that I would rather be.

Please don't let me, go falling from the sky,
This fasten seatbelt sign just needs to go out.
If only you could be, right here by my side,
Home wouldn't seem so far from here.
