[Verse 1]
             D
With your photographs of Kitty Hawk
          A
And the biplanes on your wall
          Am
You were always Amy Johnson
          G
From the time that you were small
   D
No schoolroom kept you grounded
             A
While your thoughts could get away
         Am
You were taking off in Tiger Moths
       G               Em                    Am
Your wings against the brush-strokes of the day

[Chorus]
          D   Dsus2 D Dsus4 D
Are you there?
          G            Em      A       D  Dsus2 Dsus4 D
On the tarmac with the winter in your hair
         G           Em         A        Bm   Bm(maj7)
By the empty hangar doors, you stop and stare
           D         D-5                  Em7
Leave the oil-drums behind you, they won't care
A               D  Am F G D Am F G
Oh, are you there?

[Verse 2]
          D
Oh, you wrapped me up in a leather coat
          A
And you took me for a ride
         Am
We were drifting with the tail-wind
          G
When the runway came in sight
      D
The clouds came up to gather us
         A
And the cockpit turned to white
        Am
When I looked, the sky was empty
   G                Em                Am
I suppose you never saw the landing-lights

[Chorus]
         D     Dsus2  Dsus4 D
Are you there?
         G               Em           A      D    Dsus2 Dsus4 D
In your jacket with the grease stain and the tear
 G               Em         A      Bm    Bm(maj7)
Caught up in the slipstream of the dare
     D               D-5         Em7
The compass rose will guide you anywhere
A               D Am F G D Am F G
Oh, are you there?

{Verse 3]
     D                            A
The sun comes up on Icarus as the night-birds sail away
    Am
And lights the maps and diagrams
     G
That Leonardo made
    D                       A
You can see Faith, Hope and Charity
        Am
As they bank above the fields
        G
You can join the flying circus
        Em                                 Am
You can touch the morning air against your wheels

{Chorus]
        D     Dsus2  Dsus4 D
Are you there?
              G           Em      A       D      Dsus2 Dsus4 D
Do you have a thought for me that you can share?
     G                   Em     A   Bm    Bm(maj7)
Oh I never thought you'd take me unawares
     D              D-5       Em7
Just call me if you ever need repairs
A           D     Am F G D Am F G
Oh, are you there?
