lyrics

I am on my way
Mighty BNA
Driving headfirst into the sun
And I feel like all of my days have led up to this one
While I wait I watch
Other planes touch down
And I wonder if they slept last night
All the stars tell me welcome but I'm not landing, I'm taking flight

Taking flight and from my seat I see
I see the city from an aerial peace
I see the skyline bathed in morning light
I see the traffic crawl like cells in a stream
Hey, I can see my house
And we turn and set our course for the Northeast shores
The clouds envelop us in mystery and care
I close my eyes and I begin to explore
My home is waiting there

Was this trip the same
When I split my cage
And the Lord took away all my sin
O the freedom I felt as I soared on the breath of the wind!
No more shame or guilt
No more fear or death
Now I travel in newness of life
'Cause every step is a joy when the dawn is a call to a new flight

Taking flight and from my seat I see
I see the old self I once loved to please
I see the roads God used to lead me here
I see the faint shades of eternity
Yeah, I will see his face (O his beautiful face!)
'Til then I'll trudge with every breath and shout
And find my rest in his mystery and care
I am marching to my Father's house
My home is waiting there!
