Slow, and I can't wait
as the day turns inside out
Night falls on you darling, darling
it falls on me too

and I'm tired
and I can't sleep
but I try
so I can dream

You know, forever's awhile
and tomorrows still a night away
and it's late
and I just wanna go home

I fly over the sea
and the planes I see you
hanging on the wing darling, darling
holding onto me

Passed out in my room
your breath is sunny and warm
you know, forever's a while
and tomorrows still cold and gray
and it's late and I just wanna go home

Don't say you'll miss me
cuz I know you miss me
you keep blowing me kisses over the phone

don't say you'll leave me
cuz I know you won't leave
you know it took years for you to stay

I don't love you to death
but I'd die if you left
from state to state, you know I'd race
but nobody knows which exit is yours

There is a place in the red light district
of your heart that I used to visit
It's been boarded
I can't afford it anymore

    General CommentIt's been boring
    I can't up for it anymore

    in addition to being "i can't afford it," i'm pretty sure it's also, "it's been boarded."

    My InterpretationIt sounds like a long distance relationship. He probably flies by night, and there's a time zone difference, hence the line, "and tomorrow's still a night away." The song definitely sounds a little conflicted, which leads me to believe that maybe he's considering breaking up with her. "It's late and I just wanna go home." And it's not because he doesn't love her, because he clearly does, he dreams about her and he doesn't want her to leave him. I got a lot of this from the last verse, which I think is a metaphor for the strain of the long distance. He has a place in her heart, but it's been "boarded" because he can't handle the lifestyle. I don't know.
