Lyrics:

Ten o'clock
Hang it up
Close and lock the door
Throttle back
Engines roar
Wheels up
You're gone again
And I miss you already

In the air
You are there
In my dreams
For the fleeting moments I can sleep
Until you call
You're safe and sound and homebound

I am blue and I am missing you
My transatlantic lover
You are several thousand miles from my arms again

There's a gaping, you-sized hole here
Since my love has gone away
And I'm counting the days until you're home again
'Cause when you're gone
You're gone far too long

Love is
Where you are, love
No matter where you are
Nearer than closeness
Closer than just nearby

I come home
I'm alone
But somehow it's not home
I hear the silence bounce from wall to wall
I miss the sound of you

I miss the way it feels
To hold you holding me
I miss your gentle touch
Your smiling eyes
Your lovely kiss
I miss the smell of you
I miss all of you

Ten hours of work provided
Adequate distraction
But now I can't keep my mind off you
And wishing you were here

They say absence makes the heart grow fonder
But I cannot imagine being
Fonder than I am of you
I'm in love with you
And when you're gone
I'm gone

Love is
Where you are, love
No matter where you are
Nearer than closeness
Closer than just nearby

Double scotch
Get in line
Get on board and
Get a seat
Get a grip
Get more scotch
Wait forever on the tarmac
I drift off thinking of you

I wake at 30,000 feet
In a sea of darkness
Punctuated by a million distant city lights and stars
And I am on my way home

Because home is where the heart is
In your green and pleasant land
Who knew that I could be so homesick
For a place I've never seen

Flying through the air
With my transatlantic lammy and
I never thought I'd go this far for anyone
But here I am

Closing the distance
At 500 miles an hour
And I'm counting the hours until I'm home again
'Cause where you are
Wherever you are
That's home

Love is
Where you are, love
No matter where you are
Nearer than closeness
Closer than just nearby

Love is
Where you are, love
No matter where you are
Nearer than closeness
Closer than just nearby
