Night Flyer

This song is by John Mayall and appears on the album USA Union (1970).

Lying awake in the darkness
Your voice is sad in my ear
Now that I've just put the phone down
How do you expect me to sleep with you so far away?

I'm calling the desk for a taxi
The night is so black with the rain
All of my friends are still sleeping
They would never know I was planning to be gone again

I'm the night flyer, I'm waiting
Somebody get me a plane
Airports at night always empty
I smoke too much sitting here

I'm coming home to you darling
Out of the darkness till day
Though you will tell me I'm crazy
How do you expect me to sleep with you so far away?
