Susan Raye - L. A. International Airport

Standing in the silent hall waitin' for the final call

Says he doesn't love me anymore

Shaking hands I pack a bag trembling voice I call a cab

Slowly I start walking to the door

The cab arrives he blows his horn I stumble at in the early morn

Tell him of the place I've got to go

Cared a hundred single nights paid her bills and a traffic fine

Gettin' through these doors that's been so slow

LA International Airport where the big jet engines roar

LA Internation Airport I won't see him anymore

The stewardess in a miniskirt a hippie in a leather shirt

I started on the way to Naples Row

While I'm wondering where it's at I see a Paris diplomat

Call his kids while trying to get back home

Baggage car goes quickly by see my face and start to cry

Stumble to the lounge to be alone

And while I'm trying to get some rest I bite my lips and try my best

To fight the pain that's making me leave home

LA International Airport...

With silver wings across the sky paper trails and wave goodbye

To those below who've got to stay at home

I wish that I had flown at night so I could take that champagne flight

Rid myself of every tear I own

Soaring high above the heaven in a 747 fighting back the tears that curse my eyes

Captain's voice so load and clear amplifies into my ear

Insuring me and flying friendly skies

LA International Airport...
