Flight of the Nighthawk

Cover Image

Wrote this as part of a mini-album to accompany a friend's travel blog.  This song is a simple celebration of the road trip, taking a fantastical air inspired by the imagination of children.  The Nighthawk is their camper-van, and their blog, incidentally, is the best thing ever (http://www.nighthawkflight.com/).  The full mini-album is on my bandcamp site here: https://phillipleross.bandcamp.com/album/flight-of-the-nighthawk.  Shout out to my friends/family who stepped up to record the vocals as the moon and stars!


If I take a right at the next light
We'll take flight and say hello to the night
Through the fog and the smog we'll cut a path
And the moon and the stars will join us for a laugh
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

No need for ships or boats we'll float above the waves
And exclaim to the sky that the ocean saves
A kiss for it a little bit of love is all they're asking

And in that embrace we'll fly away
Into the sunset
The world's at our doorstep
And after the sunset
We'll take one more step
Into the sunset
The world's at our doorstep
