    Lyrics

    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"

    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

    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

    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

    And it's four in the morning
    My world is calling
    Speeding through the universe tonight

    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

    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

    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

    And it's four in the morning
    My world is calling
    Speeding through the universe tonight
