With my last dying breath I whisper I love you
Over and over again
You put your hand to my mouth, don't talk baby
You're gonna get out

Close your eyes, you won't be sleeping much tonight
As the city is passing us by
The runway lights blinking red tonight
And the in-flight movie is the story of my life flashing before my eyes

We're going down it's a disaster
I'm falling faster
Down to the lights below and I feel no pain at all
It's alright baby
You can't save me

Now I'm leaving
My heart is pounding
The city is sleeping
I watch the world go by through the window
I hold on to your photograph
And count the times we've said goodbye
And if this plane goes down you'll be the last thing that I ever see

We're going down it's a disaster
I'm falling faster
Down to the lights below and I feel no pain at all
It's alright baby
You can't save me

This is your Captain speaking
The engines failed
The co-pilot is bleeding
We've lost all contact with the tower
And I don't think I have the power
To keep this plane in the air

We're going down it's a disaster
I'm falling faster
Down to the lights below and I feel no pain at all
It's alright baby
You can't save me

    General CommentThis song is pretty crazy. Obviously his plane is going down and he's about to die. so he's thinking about the chick. It could, and probably does have some deep meaning about him and her relationship failing. Then again, it could just be about a plane crash. Haha either way, I love this song.

    General Commenti kind of think it might be a metaphor of him committing suicide by jumping off a building or some other height...
