25 Years

I wait with you at the airline
Until it’s time for you to fly
You have your hands in your pockets now
Because you don’t know how to say goodbye

Cause baby when we hit top speed
25 years fly by like a time machine
It’s gonna be a lonely anniversary

Above the earth
In a metal room
You’ve got the best view of the stars

Meanwhile on earth
I watch a movie screen
But in between I look at the sky

Cause baby when we hit top speed
25 years fly by like a time machine
It’s gonna be a lonely anniversary

Late at night
It cools down
I lie back and look around
The earth tilts, the birds call
Shadows slide against the wall
The way my heart, the way it beats
When I’m trying just to sleep
Baby baby I’m on my hands, I’m on my knees…

Crazy waking up from sleep
To find the same old stars shining down on me
I wonder baby baby baby please
To find the same old stars shining down on me

I wonder baby baby baby please
To find the same old stars shining down on me
25 years fly by

Same old stars shine down
Shining down on me
25 Years
