"Which Way Your Heart Will Go" as written by and Mason Stewart Jennings....
Little airplane in the sky you point up at it
I watch your face as you watch it go by
Everything is perfect

Where would I be right now
If all my dreams had come true
Deep down I know somehow
I'd have never seen your face

This world would be a different place
Darling there's no way to know
Which way your heart will go

Summer sun on a sandy slide
Silver swing set shining
How can life feel so alive
And still feel like dying

Where would I be right now
If all my dreams had come true
Deep down I know somehow
I'd have never seen your face

This world would be a different place
Darling there's no way to know
Which way your heart will go

A stack of books beside our bed
Living out of boxes
Why does the empty space fill with dread
Why does change still shock us

Where would we be right now
If all our dreams had come true
Deep down I know somehow
I'd have never seen your face

This world would be a different place
Darling there's no way to know
Which way your heart will go
Which way your heart will go

    So many dreams do not play out the way we would like them to, for better or worse, but they are a reality which is faced. I'd like to think he's grateful his dreams didn't come true, because if they had he would not have met this person, whoever it is. This person changed him. It could be interpreted as a song not about love at all, but of course I like to think that is. I love it.

    Darling, there's no way to know

    Je pense que c'est l'histoire de quelqu'un qui avait des attentes face à un amour potentiel... et qu'elles ne se sont jamais réalisées complètement. c'est une histoire de deceptions; mais pas de regrets.

    parce que dans l'amour ce n'est jamais sur... on ne sait jamais si nos sentiments seront réciproques.

    Peut-être qu'ils étaient des amants... que lui était follement amoureux de l'autre personne et que ça c'est terminé... mais qu'il préfère se dire qu'il préfère avoir le coeur brisé plutôt que de jamais avoir rencontré cette personne.

    "How can life feel so alive
    And still feel like dying
    (...)
    Why does the empty space fill with dread
    Why does change still shock us"

    De façon général, Mason Jennings, dans ces textes n'est pas très "négatif"; il ne se morfond pas... il y a toujours quelque chose de jolie dans la vie.

    Mais reste que dans cette chanson on sent qu'il y a quelque chose de triste... un peu de déception... qu'il aurait peut-être souhaité que les choses se passent différement...

    My Interpretation'Little airplane in the sky,you point up as it,I watch your face as you watch it go by', that's what children do and say when they first start seeing planes in the air. It's usually an exciting event for a child and they like to show the parents who usually do not notice because we have lost our ability to be thrilled by spectacular things that are seemingly so commonplace as to appear mundane. Seems like perhaps the child was an accident. Perhaps he got a woman he did not love pregnant, and would have never seen his child had his life went as planned.

    General Commentperfection is imperfection.
    if things worked out they way he always planed or wished for,then he would have never met his love/lover that means so much to him now. So in a way be thankful for everything that happens because in some way it will bring both happiness and misfortune.
    sometimes you just need to go with the flow, roll with the punches if you will

    General CommentThis song has a serene yet blue tone, which penetrates the listeners’ soul and induces recollections of our goals and the people whom we are close to, and if they have any correlation at all. So many strong relations bud from the hard times that we never intend to have. We always wonder where we would be if all went as planned, if every step on our path of life gave us another flawless brick to construct our dream castle with. Yet our deviation from the ideal is the cause for our finer feelings, it builds character. I love this song because it’s a reminder that every seemingly meaningless interaction can make a world of a difference in someone’s life. So powerful…
