"Paper Airplane Dream" as written by and Scott Windsor....
I can see the smoke stacks in the distance
And I know that we're almost there.
This day has been best at overwhelming me.
And these thoughts are running races in my head.
I'm anxious to see the ocean
And run my fingers through the sand.
Will stencil in silly words like "love" and "forever"
And let the tide run over them.
Run over me.
We live in a world of familiar strangers that meet
And greet the stale, cold air every morning.
I'm always overanxious to get to the point,
Overanxious just to get there.
I want you to know that I failed in trying to please everyone.
The waves are crashing high at their peaks and I wonder,
"What in the world are they running from,
And what am I running from?"
Counting to ten and taking beep breaths.
I'm almost out of opinions.
So I close my eyes real tight.
I just want to drive with my eyes closed.
I feel numb, out of control.
Going crazy. I swear I'm going crazy.
I hear you asking, and I hear you pleading.
But it's out of my hands.
I can't save you. I can't even save myself.
I'm not your savior. So save yourself.

    General CommentAh, well the song reminds me of like when ugh everything in the world seems to be insane. When friends are asking you this and that, and being sad, and your parents want more from you, and your just looking for real love and start getting extremely critical and thinking way to hard about everything in life. I love the ending. (Things always feel out of my hands and make me go crazy) ...I love all of his songs. They always put me in a sad mood though. Always. But hey, tour to NY damnit.

    General Commentps. here's the corrected lyrics (there were some typos)

    I can see the smoke stacks in the distance and I know that we're almost there.
    This day has been best at overwhelming me.
    And these thoughts are running races in my head.
    I'm anxious to see the ocean and run my fingers through the sand.
    We'll stencil in silly words like love and forever
    Then let the tide run over them, run over me.
    We live in a world of familiar strangers that meet and greet the stale, cold air every morning.
    I'm always overanxious to get to the point, overanxious just to get there.
    And I want you to know I've failed in trying to please everyone.
    The waves are crashing high at their peaks.
    And I wonder what in the world are they running from.
    And what am I running from?
    I'm counting to ten and taking deep breaths.
    I'm almost out of options.
    So I close my eyes real tight.
    I just want to drive with my eyes closed.
    I feel numb, out of control.
    I'm going crazy I swear I'm going crazy.
    I hear you asking and I hear you pleading.
    But it's out of my hands I can't save you.
    I can't even save myself.
    I'm not your savior so save yourself.
    Save yourself.

    General Commenti'm relating to this song right now. i feel as if i could have written it.
    when everything is going hectic, you just want a place to escape and that's what he's doing in the beginning. but throughout the song and near the end he realizes he can't help everyone, and he's just running from the problems. and he's given up trying.
