"In The Air" as written by and Claudio Merlini....
Written by Toby McKeehan and Glenn Galaxy
Produced by tobyMac and Todd Collins


I had a dream the other night about the other side
And I must confess that it was quite a ride
I had a dream last night and
the fact that you weren't there
Gave me quite the scare
People were afloat all around me
Yet their weightless state never seemed to astound me
Everything was grand till I noticed one thing
That you, my friend, weren't on the scene

There in the air

I've been working all morning trying to spin the dream
Cause I just can't believe you weren't in my dream
Remember you and I said we would paint the sky
And the leaves on the trees and the stars at night
We made beats and even wrote rhymes
And played golf, I think, a million times
Now we never got around to spiritual matters
But we sure made time for our mindless chatter

I wanna see you there
In the air
One day we'll be singin' (Hallelujah)
I wanna see you there
In the air
One day we'll be singin' (Hallelujah)

Hello wassup (wassup), how ya doin' (just fine)
I was sorta wonderin', could we make the time
(Just kick it) why not (at our usual spot)
Latte's in May, mine cold, your hot
(So where we goin') much deeper than our usual chat
(Like who's beats is weak and who's beats is phat)
Nah, my man, this some next level junk
(Like when we discussed if Tiger Woods could dunk)
Just meet me there, seven o'clock, rain or shine
With a fat cup of bean and a wide open mind

    General CommentI think that this song is about how he always has tons of opportunities to talk seriously w/ his friend...but instead they talk about other things...and he had a dream and his friend wasn't w/ him in heaven...I can relate to this song...because I talk w/ my friend a lot...but we never talk about serious things, just pointless stuff...and it scares me to think that he's not going to heaven w/ me when we die
