"LAX to O'Hare" as written by Michael Guy Chislett, Andy Mrotek, Michael Carden and William Beckett....
It was a plane ride from LAX to O'Hare,
And what happened next was a series of unfortunate events.
(Please stay tuned for what happened next)
The life I breathe for you gives to me new wounds
Well to patch and dress as I reflect on what else I could give you.

Maybe I should blindly throw my faith
Into the next thing that comes my way
Standing at the back door with the life that she left behind.
Are we all the same behind the frame
Beneath the glass and fake last names?
I've been waiting far too long to feel the sun on my back.

It was a big bang
And a bright white light from no where.
It turned my coach class window to
A first class seat on the evening news, on NBC.
The life I gave for you is yours
So keep it, you oughtta keep it.
If I had one last chance to take it all back
You know I'd take take take you.

Maybe I should blindly throw my faith
Into the next thing that comes my way.
Standing at the back door with the life that she left behind.
Are we all the same behind the frame
Between the glass and fake last names?
I've been waiting far too long to feel the sun on my back.

"Apologies are all we'll ever be," she said.
Standing on the stairs
Looking back, looking hard at me.
"Well, life is long for those who have to wait," I said.
It's the choice I had to make.
The choice I had to make.
It's the choice I had to
(Make)

It was a plane ride. (plane ride)
It was a plain ride. (plain ride)
It was a plain ride.
Just a plane

Maybe I should blindly throw my faith
Into the next thing that comes my way.
Standing at the back door with the life that I'd left behind.
If we know the way we're gonna die
Through everything else we will survive.
I've been waiting far too long to feel the sun on my back-
Yeah

But one day,
I will stay.

    General CommentI like this song a lot. It's not as great as the songs on Almost Here but still pretty awesome.

    There are a few errors here and there in the lyrics. Here's the corrected version:

    It was a plane ride from LAX to O'Hare
    And what happened next was a series of unfortunate events
    (Please stay tuned for what happened next...)
    The life I breathe for you gives to me new wounds
    To patch and dress as I reflect on what else I could give you

    Maybe I should blindly throw my faith
    Into the next thing that comes my way
    Standing at the back door with the life that she left behind
    Are we all the same behind the frame
    Beneath the glass and fake last names?
    I've been waiting far too long to feel the sun on my back

    It was a big bang
    And a bright white light from nowhere
    It turned my coach class window to
    A first-class seat on the evening news on NBC
    The life I gave for you is yours
    So keep it, you oughta keep it
    If I had one last chance to take it all back
    You know I'd take, take, take you

    Maybe I should blindly throw my faith
    Into the next thing that comes my way
    Standing at the back door with the life that she left behind
    Are we all the same behind the frame
    Between the glass and fake last names?
    I've been waiting far too long to feel the sun on my back

    "Apologies are all we'll ever be," she said
    Standing on the stairs
    Looking back, looking hard at me
    "Life is long for those who have to wait," I said
    It's the choice I had to make
    The choice I had to make
    It's the choice I had to...

    It was a plane ride (plane ride)
    It was a plain ride (plain ride)
    It was a plain ride
    Just a plain...

    Maybe I should blindly throw my faith
    Into the next thing that comes my way
    Standing at the back door with the life that I left behind
    If we know the way we're gonna die
    Through everything else we will survive
    I've been waiting far too long to feel the sun on my back

    But one day, I will stay

    General CommentGood work with the lyrics, some are a little hard to get.

    I love this song, was waiting for it to be approved.

    Nice job TAI, you guys have matured.

    General CommentI don't know, the vocals are really quite different than Almost Here.
    Which yes, definately shows maturity, but just for me personally, but I fell in love with the voice on AH.


    I'll get used to this once I get my hands on the album, though. =)


    The song though, I'm not sure, something about the unexpected things in life. And not always planning out every move you make, and just being spontaneous.

    General CommentI, too, fell in love with the voice on AH; nevertheless, I still love this song.
    And I'm pretty sure the second time it says, "between the glass and fake last names" not "beneath..."

    General CommentIf it really says "it was a plane ride, it was a plain ride," I really like that double meaning thing there.

    I too like Almost Here better so far than "LAX" and "We've got a big mess." I really like the lyrics for this sing though.

    General CommentI had a random thought just then, when listening to this song.

    Are we certain that it's "faith"? Because it also kind of sounds like "fame" to me, so I think it's about that. Reading through the lyrics, it makes sense to me...
