Michael Tomlinson — All Is Clear lyrics

It's been raining here
I can smell it in the air
And I love this southern city like I spent my childhood there
It is inevitable that we will soon be saying our goodbyes
But I'll always have your skyline in my eyes
I have loved and lost all around your city blocks
And the years have gone and painted me
Like leaves against the rocks
And in my haste to make a new life where I'm going I don't know
I will turn around and wave then I am gone
And as those big jet engines ignite
And take me over the mountains alone I'm in flight
I think of the love in my life
I look out on the night and I am gone
Way up here it all is clear and I'm not afraid
Of living with these tears
Way up here it all is clear and I'm not afraid
Of living in these years
I have watched my friends scatter out across the land
And I wonder if I'll live so long to see them all again
And if I don't well it don't matter they will love me all the same
For the hearts that I love most remain unchanged
I have dreamed of a time when I'd leave this all behind
But I thought that I'd be stronger or I hoped that I'd be blind
But now I know that I am neither and it hurts to say goodbye
I will always have your skyline in my eyes
And as those big jet engines ignite
And take me over the mountains alone I'm in flight
I think of the love in my life
I look out on the night and I am gone

Way up here it all is clear and I'm not afraid
of living with these tears
Way up here it all is clear and I'm not afraid
of living in these years
So clear
Oh all is clear
All is clear
All is clear
