Bird In An Aeroplane

Oh Land


Feathered to the tips
Light weight but strong
I can only go this long

Iron, steel and smoke
Your power is endless
I’m only flesh and bones

Every machine has a promise to break
Stuck in a dream that I cannot escape

I pray for hurricanes
You take off when I want to stay
Out of steam I’m off terrain
I’m a bird in an aeroplane

Crossing continents
We’re going in loops
Tell me will we ever land

Longing to return
To somewhere I’ve known
Something quite familiar

Every machine has a promise to break
Stuck in a dream that I cannot escape

I pray for hurricanes
You take off when I want to stay
Out of steam I’m off terrain
I’m a bird in an aeroplane

We’re flying over mountains
Higher every day
I’m trying to keep up
Trying to match your game

While you are gaining height
I’m fading into grey
And away
