lyrics

LIFTED
Freezing rain delayed her flight
Planes had stacked up overnight
Leaving her to turn through terminals
And wander through her mind

She’d been leaving for so long
In her heart already gone
By the time she climbs through clearing skies
He’ll wonder what went wrong

Lift off leave him behind
It’s time to start a new life
Love will lift her next time
The privilege was his
But he missed her flight

Soft of voice and slow to speak
Her pauses were his clues to read
He never heard a word
While waiting for another turn to preach

Nothing left to second guess
Love should collide, not coalesce
Like rain on windowpanes at departure gates
And the faces they reflect

Lift off leave him behind
It’s time to start a new life
Love will lift her next time
The privilege was his

Lift off left him behind
It’s time to start a new life
Love will lift her next time
The privilege was his
But he missed her flight

This is her goodbye
This is her goodbye
