  • Just a song before I go,
    To whom it may concern
    Traveling twice the speed of sound
    It's easy to get burned

    When the shows were over
    We had to get back home,
    And when we opened up the door
    I had to be alone

    She helped me with my suitcase,
    She stands before my eyes
    Driving me to the airport,
    And to the friendly skies

    Going through security
    I held her for so long
    She finally looked at me in love,
    And she was gone

    Just a song before I go,
    A lesson to be learned
    Traveling twice the speed of sound
    It's easy to get burned Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
