Bought a ticket for a trip I wanted long ago
staring deep into crying eyes
said goodbye, stood in line
now I changed my mind
I used to run and never look behind.

But now, now I've got a love to leave
and now, not gonna walk away so easily.

I can't take that plane
I can't take that
I can't take that plane today
I can't take that plane
I can't take that plane.

Plane lands short a man on the other side
driver stands with a sign in faith
checks his watch as he size up the time gone by
two lonely pieces circle baggage claim.

But yeah, now I've got a love to leave
and yeah, don't you know it changes everything?
everything...

I can't take that plane
I can't take that
I can't take that plane today
I can't take that plane
I can't take that plane.

No I can't
I can't
I can't
I can't...

I'm coming to getcha
I'm coming to getcha now
I'm coming to getcha
I'm coming to getcha now...

    General CommentI feel that this song is about when he didnt have someone to love him he just wanted to getaway so he booked a trip and then found someone to love him,so now its very hard to leave that person.

    General CommentI am pretty sure this was written for the movie "Cars" and just not used. Certainly fits as it has that movie soundtrack feel to me unlike a lot of his other songs.

    General CommentNo, this was a song that was supposed to be on continuum but he felt like it didnt fit right. The song is about always only having to worry about himself and what matter to him, but as the song says, "Now I have a love to lead." Meaning it is no longer just about him anymore
    Bought a ticket for a trip I wanted long ago
    staring deep into crying eyes
    said goodbye, stood in line
    now I changed my mind
    I used to run and never look behind

    The trip is just things he could do or wants to do freely outside a relationship
    He breaks up with the girl realizes that is wrong and go back to her because he understands now what being in a relstionship means. He lets go of that idea of his bachlorhood and doesnt get on the plane(meaning he does not choose himself over the relationship).
