Susan Raye - L.A. International Airport lyrics

 

Standing in that silent hall waitin' for that final call

Says he doesn't love me anymore

Shaking hands I pack a bag, trembling voice I call a cab

Slowly I start walking to the door

Cab arrives he blows his horn, I stumble at in the early morn

Tell him of the place I've got to go

 a hundred signal lights, paid the bills and a traffic fine

Gettin' through these doors that's been so slow

L.A. International Airport

Where the big jet engines roar

L.A. International Airport

I won't see him anymore

A stewardess in a miniskirt, hippie in a leather shirt

Started on the way to Naples Row

While I'm wondering where it's at I see a Paris diplomat

College kids are trying to get back home

Baggage car goes quickly by, I see my case and I start to cry

Stumble to the lounge to be alone

While I'm trying to get some rest, bite my lips and try my best

To fight the pain that's making me leave home

L.A. International Airport

Where the big jet engines roar

L.A. International Airport

I won't see him anymore

With silver wings across the sky, paper trails and wave goodbye

To those below who've got to stay at home

Wish that I had flown at night so I could take that champagne flight

Rid myself of every tear I own

Soaring high above the heaven in a 747

Fighting back the tears that curse my eyes

Captain's voice so loud and clear amplifies into my ear

Assuring me I'm flying friendly skies

L.A. International Airport

Where the big jet engines roar

L.A. International Airport

I won't see him anymore
