lyrics

Late night, next flight
Something calls me to the light
And if I don't return
Know that I am finally home

I am learning all the landmarks and mapping out the territory
Soaking up the culture and learning all her history
Certain parts are dangerous but I want to know those, too
It's easy for a man who's paid his dues

Deadlines, responsibilities
I intend to tend to all of these

But Miami is on the horizon, shimmering
And I know I'll get there if I take my time
Because that modest, decent life
That should have been hers the whole time
Well I think it's time she tried...

Midnight, next life
Things we couldn't quite get right
Pull the next book
Won't regret the chance we took

Well, I intend to take my time
But I won't let the time take me
I'm getting old and I need something to believe
Could be my city or your mountains
Could be my leather or your lace
Could be north or south or anywhere between

Hangups insecurities
I intend to put an end to all of these

Because Miami is on the horizon, shimmering
And I know I'm getting closer all the time
Because that modest, decent life
That should be hers and could be mine
Well it might be time we try
It might be time we try
It might be time we try
It might be time we try
It might be time we tried....
