"Paper Aeroplane" as written by and Chambers....
I'm just an old man
My hair is thinning
My head is spinning
I cry myself to sleep at night
And lordy lordy
Though no one hears me
I know you're near me
Will you always be my wife

And some days make me
Feel weak and shaky
Some fly right right by me
Like a paper aeroplane
And I hardly notice
That the world's gone crazy
But nothings clearer
Than the way your said my name

And I should of let go by now
Yeah I should of let go by now
But I kept your brownies
And your golden honey
And I smell your flowers
And I saved your money
And I hold your blanket
Close for hours
And I paint my heart blue
But I did it all for you.

I'm just an old man
My hair is thinning
My head is spinning
I cry myself to sleep at night
And lordy lordy
Though no one hears me
I know you're near me
Will you always be my wife

    General CommentI think this song is about a very old man who is close to dying, and he's depressed because he has lost his wife, the love of his life. He feels like she's there with him. Maybe he feels he should have let go of her, but he can't...he's kept all her stuff just as it was before she died. And he's ready to join her.
