I am in sky above the Bay flying back to Chicago on Good Friday night
I’m drinking alone and I’m trying to write one more song for this record of my life
I was in California playing music I wrote based on Homer’s Odyssey
Sometimes I forget how lucky I am to be living something out of a dream
Sure it’s different than I imagined when I learned Appetite for Destruction in fifth grade
But the same feeling I got from Slash’s guitar I still feel in my fingers every time I play

I get to sing for people who care and go to places near and far
And whether it’s rock and roll songs or epic poetry it comes right from my heart
And the sun is aflame out the windows behind cause the earth is spinning ‘round
And the plane is dipping towards my city of light and soon I’ll be on the ground
And no matter what’s happened to me on this crooked race that I’ve run
I’m here in the air and I’m going home to the woman that I love
Coming back from doing something that I love
How lucky to have something and someone to love
