(Nanci Griffith)

I'm working on a morning flight to anywhere but here
I'm watching this evening fire burn away my tears
All my life I've left My troubles by the door
Leaving is all I've ever known before

Chorus
It's not the way you hold me
When the sun goes down
It's not the way you call my name that left me stranded on the ground
It's not the way you say you hear my heart when the music ends
I am just learning how to fly away again
It's not the way you say you hear my heart when the music ends
I am just learning how to fly away again

And maybe you were thinkin'
That you thought you knew me well
But, no one ever knows the heart of anyone else
I feel like Garbo in this late night grand hotel
Cause living alone is all I've ever done well

(Chorus twice)
