You'll be in the air.
In some hours you'll be over the sea
lost in the other passengers on the plane
but if you just moved your arms then you could tell that
you are in the air.
You'd feel the yawning gold grow wider.
You'd feel the dwindling fuel for your lungs and your breaths would slow.
You'd be in the air.
You'd feel the hot blowing rock-filled winds
and the clouds of ash would fill your skies
and you'd smoothly glide
over the cold river basin where we spend the night
and again your gaping gap is pink in foggy light.
When I wake up your pet will pounce on me. I'll meet the day.
You'll be in the air. I'll be in your bed when I'm awake
and can you tell that I'm down here?
Can you feel my hot lungy wind?
Was it intense to smell my skin and not lose yourself?
I'll look pinkly out your window in the fog
and loud and clearly I'll pick out your resounding roar.
You'll be in the air.
You'll bear fruit
your bare feet
your bare arms in the heat
You'll be able to feel your might.

    General Commentlots of mistakes, its not "so your breaths would slow" its "and your breaths would slow"

    "the clouds of ash would fill your skies" has and "And" before "the clouds"


    "i'll be in your bed, you'll be in the air when i'm awake" is actualy "You'll be in the air, ill be in your bed when im awake"

    thre are more but im tired.
