I'm hurrying home to you
I'm through with being lonely
I'm hurrying home to you
Don'cha know you're my one and only
Fast fast travelin' fast dear
The quarrels of the past we'll keep 'em in the past

(Higher Higher Ever Higher)

Skyliner Skyliner
flying so freely
We seem to really touch heaven
Sunbeams all dance on your
wings where the light falls
And then when night calls

Stars giving a show for the people below the sky

(I'll get home sooner if the)

Jet streams behind me
memories remind me
Your love will guide me
Skyliner fly

(Right to your lover and then)

You'll hold him closely
And sing to him sweetly
Skyliner Skyliner

A silver stream that's crystallized
Shining its rays across the sky

('n bye and bye the clouds roll by)

Why don't we dig that crazy kingdom in the sky, that

Hi-fly swinging in the Sky-liner
Just forgetting the troubles below me

Alan's solo:
Flyin' in the sky
It's a natural kind of high
When you're ridin' in the atmosphere
The steadily movin' ozone
will direct you to this song you want to hear

Hey (you dig me) If I'm dreaming shake me(better believe it)
Say (you wig me) If I'm sleeping wake me

Tim's solo:
It's a little short time now upon this place
We're workin' a lot n' frettin' about
The who have n' who have not
So please just take a moment out
And move a little closer
We will sing this song and try to make you happy

Giving a show for the people below as we fly
Hearing the beat of the motors repeat with a sigh

(And so we're riding on the)

Skyliner Skyliner
(I'm hurrying home to you, I'm through with being lonely)
flying so freely
(I'm hurrying home to you, don'cha
know you're my one and only)
We seem to really touch heaven
(Fast fast hurrying fast
dear-the quarrels of the past we'll keep 'em in the past)

Sunbeams all dance on your
(I'm gonna be holdin' you, And now I'm feelin' jumpy)
wings where the light falls
(I'm gonna be holdin' you, I don't care if the ride gets bumpy)
Then when the night calls (Fast fast travelin' fast dear)
