lyrics

We get in a line
We get in a plane
At the start of the night

I try not to stare
At your rich brown hair
The empty seat to your right

You know how it goes
I move back five rows
For the rest of the flight.

Oh,we’re up in the air
(and) the sun’s coming out
(it’s) fading black to blue

I thought I caught your smile
But I’m stuck in my chair
I can’t get to you.

It’s like taking a test
I try my best
I pick the tray wrapped in green

I get some food on my sleeve
I try not to grieve
I need a washing machine

At least I’m alone
There’s no one to see
No one to laugh with me.

Oh, we’re up in the air
(and) the sun’s coming out
(it’s) fading black to blue

I thought I caught your smile
But the seatbelt light’s on
I can’t get to you.

The man to my left is sleeping on my shoulder
The man to my left is sleeping and I’m wide awake.

Oh, I’m just five rows back
(and) the window shade’s up
(it’s) fading black to blue

I thought I caught your smile
But the seatbelt light’s on
I can’t get to you.

I crane my neck
I strain my eyes
I see the back of your head

I wish we could talk
I wish we could laugh
Face to face instead

A cellist since the age of seven, Starmer eventually wove himself into the fabric of North Carolina's vibrant music scene. ~ Timothy Monger ... more
