Night Flight Over Water

(Michael Joy)
Michael Joy
Night Flight Over Water


If a mirror could show your heart
You’d see yourself all bathed in light
And nothing more you would desire
Nor feel deserted tonight
Lovers come and lovers go
The reasons are so incomplete
Passion’s play will unfold
It’s a damn good mystery
Try as you might
By love be led
Still it’s a night flight over water
Give what you can
Love like the wind
It’s just one more thing
We’ll never understand
If the sun could reach your soul
You’d see a place of pure delight
And nothing more you’d call your own
Nor feel deserted tonight
Lover come and lovers go
Pretty words a season’s flower
Each would love to have and hold
And clothe the lonely hour
(chorus)
