Roy Orbison – Run The Engines Up High lyrics
Standing in this airport waiting all alone
Listening to the falling raindrops playing a lonely song
I didn't want to leave that girl, but I couldn't stay
But when the feeling's gone, you know it's gotta end just this way

Run the engines up high, get her ready to fly
Take me up and away, gonna find some better days
Run the engines up high, get her ready to fly
Leaving yesterday's sorrow, gonna chase tomorrow

When I step up on board this plane, I'll never look behind
I'll close my eyes and let the whining engines ease my mind
I may get off in Dallas, or go on to L.A.
But anyway, I've got some time to think a while along the way

Run the engines up high, get her ready to fly
Leaving yesterday's sorrow, I'm gonna chase tomorrow
Run the engines up high, get her ready to fly
Take me up and away I'm gonna find some better days.....
