about

Amelia Earhart's mechanic...

lyrics

I've gone over this
A thousand times in my head
Was it my fault
Did I forget????

When I wake up in the morning
And I look out to the western sky
I wanna see you fly, see you flying home
Was it the radio
I should have checked it again
Tested the frequencies
Receiving transmissions fail
Did you ever hear them?

I've got this sinking feeling
That I did you wrong
Now all the days are too long
She should have held up
If the winds were too strong
You could have made it
If you brought me along
Now your legend still lives on

Tachometer, oil flow, fuel pressure
CHECK
Instrument panel, circuit breakers
CHECK
Stabilizers, landing gear, propellers
CHECK
Airspeed calibration, antenna
ANTENNA!

I've got this sinking feeling
That I did you wrong
Now the days are too long
She should have held up
If the winds were too strong
You could have made it
If you brought me along

When I lay down and try to sleep
I could almost hear the sound of your engines
In my dreams I see the Electra
Flying home
