Oh Land — Bird In An Aeroplane lyrics

The page contains the lyrics of the song "Bird In An Aeroplane" by Oh Land.


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 may not 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 (oh oh)
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…
