They put lights on the runway just for us
‘Cause you stormed into the terminal, kicked up a fuss

I’ve got nothing to declare that’s on my mind
‘Cause you said to leave all baggage behind
All these flights, they need an audience
While we fight over our coordinates

Take me by the hand and leave me blushing
Look me in the eye and tell me nothing
Sit with me awhile, I swear I don’t mind the unknown
Let’s sit and watch the planes, and watch them landing
Try to build a silent understanding
Please don’t take off, I hate spending time on my own

The security is tight around the heart
And these customs keep us time zones apart
We don’t land, we circle round and round
All of our communications down

Take me by the hand and leave me blushing
Look me in the eye and tell me nothing
Sit with me awhile, I swear I don’t mind the unknown
Let’s sit and watch the planes, and watch them landing
Try to build a silent understanding
Please don’t take off, I hate spending time on my own

With every passing minute, with every passing plane
I feel there’s something missing, I feel we’re missing something plain
With every passing minute, with every passing plane
I feel there’s something missing, I feel we’re missing something plain

Take me by the hand and leave me blushing
Look me in the eye and tell me nothing
Sit with me awhile, I swear I don’t mind the unknown
Let’s sit and watch the planes, and watch them landing
Try to build a silent understanding
Please don’t take off, I hate spending time on my own
