fly by night lyrics – rush

why try? i know why
the feeling inside me says it’s time i was gone
clear head, new life ahead
it’s time i was king now — not just one more p*wn

fly by night, away from here
change my life again
fly by night, goodbye my dear
my ship isn’t coming and i just can’t pretend

moon rise, thoughtful eyes
staring back at me from the window beside
no fright or hindsight
leaving behind that empty feeling inside


start a new chapter
find what i’m after
it’s changing every day
the change of a season
is enough of a reason
to want to get away
quiet and pensive
my thoughts apprehensive
the hours drift away
leaving my homeland
playing a lone hand
my life begins today


/ rush lyrics
