Songtekst

Chorus:
Pilot of the airwaves
Here is my request
You don't have to play it
But I hope you'll do your best
I've been listening to your show
On the radio
And you seem like a friend to me

Or a record of your choice
I don' t mind , I'd be happy just to hear your voice
Saying this is for the girl
Who didn't sign her name
Yes, she needs a dedication just the same

Bridge:
Late at night I'm still listening
Don' t waste my time chasing sleep
People say I look weary
But that 's just the company I keep
Ooooh, you make the nighttime race
Ooooh, I don't need to see your face
You're sounding good (sounding good)
Sounding good to me

Repeat Chorus

Repeat Bridge
You're sounding so good to me

Repeat Chorus
Oh, I've been listening to your show on the radio
And you seem like a friend to me

Repeat Chorus
