Theatre in the Sky
(Song for the Eye)

Welcome to the flight of drama and comedy

Fly against the wind or fly along with it
Fly through the rain and lightning
Fly high above the earth
Fly into the bright sunlight
Fly toward blue skies
Fly among the white clouds
Fly into the deepening night

Theatre in the sky
The story of my life, yes
My life on the wings
Filled with surprises,
Joys, thrills, hopes,
Frustrations, fears
Happiness, laughter

There in the sky, indeed
Clouds part like curtains
Opening wide for me
Stars shining upon me
Angels — my audience
Smiling from far above
Astride the plane — my stage
Passengers — my fellow actors
Pilots — my director and stage manager
Flight attendants — my ushers

Theatre in the sky
The story of my life, yes
My life on the wings
A lifetime of memories to unfold
So buckle up and enjoy the ride!
