A not so daily record of the soundtrack to my life.

Airplanes feat. Hayley Williams of Paramore

This morning B.o.B released his latest single, titled “Airplanes”, on his Official Website. The song features Hayley Williams of Paramore and if you take my word for things (I don’t blame you if you don’t) the song is amazing. B.o.B is finally getting more attention in the mainstream and it’s great because he doesn’t seem to have watered down any of his lyrical prowess whatsoever. Check it out!

LYRICS

(Chorus)
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now, a wish right now, a wish right now
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now, a wish right now, a wish right now

(Verse 1)
I could use a dream or a Jeanie or a wish
To go back to a place much simpler than this
Cause after all the partyin and smashin and crashin
And all the glitz and glam and the fashion
And all the pandemonium and all the madness
There comes a time when you fade to the blackness
And when you’re starin at the phone in your lap
And you hopin but them people never call you back
But that’s just how the story unfolds
You get another hand soon after you fold
And when your plans unravel in the sand
What would you wish for if you had one chance?
So airplane airplane sorry I’m late
I’m on my way so don’t close that gate
If I don’t make that then I’ll switch my flight and
I’ll be right back at it by the end of the night

(Chorus 1x)

(Verse 2)
Yeah somebody take me back to the days
Before this was a job before I got paid
Before it ever mattered what I had in my bank
Yeah back when I was trying to get into the subway
And back when I was rappin for the hell of it
But nowadays we rappin to stay relevant
I’m guessing that if we could make some wishes out or airplanes
Then maybe oh maybe I’d go back to the days
Before the politics that we call the rap game
And back when aint nobody listened to my mix tape
And back before when I tried to cover up my slang
But this is for the Decatur what’s up Bobby Ray
So can I get a wish to end the politics
And get back to the music that started this shit
So here I stand and then again I say
I’m hopin we can make some wishes outa airplanes

(Chorus 2x)
I could really use a wish right now
I could really use a wish right now
Like, like, like shootin stars
I could really use a wish right now
A wish a wish right now
