Nazareth – This Flight Tonight

this song is a cover from Joni Mitchell


Look out the left the captain said
The lights down there that’s where we’ll land
Saw a falling star burning
High above the Las Vegas sand

It wasn’t the one that you gave to me
That night down south between the trailer
Not the early one that you wish upon
Not the northern one that guides in the sailors

You’ve got that touch so gentle and sweet
But you’ve got that look so cryptical
Can’t talk to you babe you know I get so weak
Sometimes I think that love is just mythical

Up there’s a heaven, down there’s a town
Blackness everywhere any little lights shine
Blackness, blackness draggin’ me down
Come on light a candle in this heart of mine

Starbright, starbright, you’ve got the lovin’ that I like
Turn this crazy bird around
Should not have got on this flight tonight

I’m drinkin’ sweet champagne got the headphones up high
Can’t numb you, can’t drum you out of my mind

They’re singin’-“Goodbye baby,
Baby bye-bye,
Ooh! love is blind”

Up go the flaps,down go the wheels
Hope you got your heat turned on baby
Hope they’ve finally fixed your automobile
Hope it’s better when we meet again babe. Nazareth – This Flight Tonight

  1. Ah, "Nazareth", These guys, this song and many others, Holy Roller, Sunshine, etc bring back so many good memories. Weren't the 70's just the best??? So many absolutely brilliant songs/ bands, Heart, Boston, Bad Company, just to name a few, who's music will live on.

  2. Saw Nazareth in a hotel bar in Owen Sound Canada about 13 or 14 years ago. Hell the bar was not even full!!! They sounded great!! Later that night they visited an old friend of theirs from way back in my home town 10 miles away. Met the band members, they were ordinary simple folks. Actually very pleasant to talk to.

  3. Back in 85 use to sleep with this red head. She played this song, but it Joni Mitchell.

    She said , oh my !
    That's how you f&@k me !!!
    I love it ! Who is this ?
    Its Nazareth.
    You mean , love hurts.?
    DAMN! She said !
    Can we do it again..?
    Play it again as we do it.
