Airplane

i’m packing up
i’m breaking down
i’m running from something
i can’t leave behind
searching for something
lost deep inside

my heart’s trying to fly
but time’s like boulders
holding me down
weighing me down
which way is up
i need to get my feet
off the ground

i’m on an airplane
but i’m no closer to you now
10,000 feet from everything i love

mile by mile
line by line
more and more
i’m missing
everything i’ve left behind
