Album: The Singer (1993)
  • I 'm tired of tracing vapor trail, ghost letters in the sky
    Living life in daydreams, watching precious time get by

    Circle around this great big world, just chasing smoke, and never
    touching ground

    Like a skywriter, rebel without a cause, drifting without an aim

    But I can't seem to give up this flying game
    I'm a wing walker, working without a net
    That's all I've ever been
    And I wonder if I'm ever coming down again

    Some people say I'm losing touch with harsh reality
    Because I can't accept the way it is with you and me
    Stop living in the past, like some old pilot from a war that
    wouldn't end

    Like a barnstormer, safe with my heart and wings
    How could I ever fall
    So serenely do I glide above it all

    I'm a skywriter, I can't forget you yet
    For whatever that it's worth

    And sometimes I think I'm never coming back

    Skywriter - I can't forget you yet
    For whatever that it's worth

    And sometimes I think I'm never coming back to earth. Writer/s: JIMMY WEBB
