(Song Progression)
[Riff 1] x3
[Riff 1] x2 /w lyrics:
Why try? I know why.
This feeling inside me says it's time I was gone.
Clear head, new life ahead.
It's time I was king now, not just one more pawn.

[Riff 2] x1 /w lyrics:
Fly by night away from here, change my life again.
[First half of Riff 2, then last half of Riff 1] x1 /w lyrics:
Fly by night, goodbye my dear.
My ship isn't coming and I just can't pretend.

[Riff 1] x1
[Riff 1] x2 /w lyrics

Moon rise, thoughtful eyes.
Staring back at me from the window beside.
No fright, or hindsight.
Leaving behind that empty feeling inside.

[Riff 2] x1 /w lyrics:
Fly by night away from here, change my life again.

[First half of Riff 2, then last half of Riff 1] x1 /w lyrics:
Fly by night, goodbye my dear.
My ship isn't coming and I just can't pretend. Woah!

Start a new chapter, I find what I'm after, is changing every day.

[Riff 4] x1 /w lyrics:
The change of a season's enough of a reason to want to get away.

[Riff 3] x1 /w lyrics:
Quiet and pensive, my thoughts apprehensive, the hours drift away.

Leaving my homeland, playing a lone hand, my life begins today.
