Cheers to me
Another late night sinkin' like a storm
The crowd is left and I'm all alone
And I saw a jet plane light up the night
And I jumped on its wing
And all of my troubles were left in my way
And I opened my eyes
And I'm in the same place

And I thought I was once a bird
Careless as the days rolled past
We live and learn
And now it seems I'm fallin' fast
Cause paper airplanes always seem to crash
And paper airplanes always seem to crash

Your children play in the courtyard
You set 'em free but they're not far
It's a shame that time just beats away
It steals their breaths and prepares their graves
And I saw a face on the train
Scared me to death and everything changed
A young man walks over to the grave
And soon he'll be dead
I'll be takin' his place

And I thought I was once a bird
Careless as the days rolled past
We live and learn
And now it seems I'm fallin' fast
Cause paper airplanes always seem to crash
And paper airplanes always seem to crash

Curious minds
We all seem to swindle our way back
And we run so fast
We're still tryin' to get there
We know you can

And I thought I was once a bird
Careless as the days rolled past
We live and learn
And now it seems I'm fallin' fast
Cause paper airplanes always seem to crash
And paper airplanes always seem to crash
And paper airplanes always seem to crash
