Ellington - A Straighter Line lyrics

11:30 fingers crossed
That I get home in time to see you off
The terminal girl says your bags are packed
But oh my god, I hope your plane is in fact delayed in transit
And you have some time
To get some coffee maybe tell me why?
Remember when I made you smile
You won't find someone like me wherever you go

Waiting in the rain, pouring in the car park
Even if you stay would you see it through?
Out here all night, out here all night.
Belligerently you step forward and I don't know what to do!
Except kiss you on the lips and show you what you've missed
And hope that you come home!

I touch your face, you take your breath.
I take your hand this is as sad as love gets!
Your plane is boarding they fixed that faulty wheel.
As you depart I saw your hand against that glass
And in that moment we found closure at last!

Waiting in the rain, pouring in the car park
Even if you stay would you see it through?
Out here all night, out here all night.
Belligerently you step forward and I don't know what to do!
Except kiss you on the lips and show you what you've missed
And hope that you come home!

I hope that faulty wheel breaks when you land in new york!
And you step off that plane and wonder why you're a thousand miles away
From a boy who knew exactly what to say!
