Stop This Flight
Words and Music by: Larry Norman Sixteen hours from London Flying on a DC-10 You know, I wonder if when that plane sets down I'll ever be able to walk again I spent thirty-five days in Europe Singing 'til my voice is gone You know, there's never time enough to get a good night's sleep What is this road that I've been running on? I've got to stop this flight I've got to get back to earth Hey, I'm a human being God knows what that's worth. I'm not meant to be stranded on some empty stage And end up lonely in my old age. I've got to stop Stop this flight. People try to twist your message Reporters try to twist your mind You know I just can't wait 'til I can get back home I really miss that girl of mine She's the only one I really talk to She's where my heart begins and ends It ain't no loves-for-money relationship, ah-ha! We were teenage buddies and childhood friends. C'mon, stop this flight Help me now Get back to earth Hey, I'm a human being God knows what that's worth. And now I'm moving like a dancer on an empty stage But I'll be risen from this prison at the end of the age. I'm always locked up in the studio Hey, this ain't no way to live You know, they never like my albums 'til the records sell And they always want more than I can possibly give I've been struggling for inspiration Hoping that the songs don't flop And I'll be waiting like a beggar for the item to drop You got to live up to the contract 'til they tell you to stop. You've got to stop this flight You've got to get back to earth Hey, we are human beings God knows what that's worth. We're not meant to be trapped in this fleshly cage And end up screamin' like a demon at the end of the age We're meant to stop the flights, that's right! Stop 'em! Stop 'em! You got to stop your flight Stop this flight - C'mon guys Stop this flight - Got me running around Stop this flight - Get your feet on the ground Stop this flight - You gotta stop this flight Stop this flight - You know who you are Stop this flight - You know what you're supposed to do Stop this flight - Stop, stop, stop this flight Stop this flight - Running around Stop this flight!
