At the airport you left your sorrow
To fly somewhere for a hopeful tomorrow.
You hand in your ticket to check in your luggage
Weigh in and get rid of your excess baggage.
Frisked and screened at the xray machine
Nothing to hide except your love that’s a sin.
You enter the gate and wait for the boarding
At the airport where no one will be watching.
As you enter the plane looking for your seat
Reminds you of the time you were hiding the cheat.
Now the crew is explaining and in detail they are showing
Where to find your life vest if the plane will be crashing.
Like a heart that is drowning, the affair that is diving
You think can be rescued if both of you started leaving.
The seatbelt you are locking, this time no one’s blocking
This is what you’ve been waiting, tomorrow he’ll be boarding.
In the middle of the flight, a speaking recurring dream
His wife is crying while your husband is calling.
Awakened by a scream, turbulence suddenly starting.
Looking at the window, lightning starts to follow.
Holding on to your prayer, to make you feel stronger
Believing in the promise, that you will still be together.
