 Intro: C#m--A--B--A-- x2

Verse 1:
On this [C#m]coldest of January [A]nights
We drive out past the [B]runway and
watch the planes go [A]flying by
The [C#m]runway lights are the deepest
blue like the [A]colors of your eyes
So [B]close them tight and
kiss me one last [A]time
[F#m] If you could go anywhere [G#m]right [A]now
Where would you [E]go?[D]
And would you [A]miss me
when you get there?
[F#m] No place that I would ra[G#m]ther [A]be
Please don't [E]let me go
[C#m]falling from the sky
The "[B]fasten seatbelt"
sign just needs to [A]go out
If only you [E]could be
[C#m]right here by my side
[B] Home wouldn't seem
so far from [A]here
 Post Chorus: C#m--A--B--A-- x2

[C#m]Passport customs
carry on re[A]member
To shut off all [B]of your
electronic [A]devices
[C#m]Fell asleep on Tuesday
woke up [A]Monday afternoon
I s[B]lept right through
your International [A]Date Line
