Calling all passengers
This is the last chance for boarding on this flight
We hope you've said goodbye
To the people you'll be leaving tonight
Secure the plane for takeoff
We'll be next in line
So you can leave your life behind
While we take off into the skies

But what about the people left behind?

"Excuse me miss would you like a drink?"
"Yes, thank you, I'd like the strongest you have
So that I don't have to think
About the people, the places, the things that I've left down there
Yes, in fact I'd like the strongest you make
So that I don't have to care"

But somewhere down on the ground
There's a man in a car and he's thinking out loud

He says tonight, I hope you get the window
And try to enjoy the view
Cause although we will never see each other again
The aisle isn't good enough for you

35,000 feet below
There's a troubled mind in a speeding car
As it's driving through the snow
He looks to the sky and he scans it for plans
And he wonders why every time's always the same
He gets into his car
And he drives to the nearest bar

"Excuse me sir, would you like a drink?"
"Yes, thank you, I'd like the strongest you have
So that I don't have to think
About my girlfriend, the one in the sky, in the plane
Who will probably never remember my name
Yes in fact, I'd like one more
Yeah in fact, I'd love one more

So the man, he says his goodbyes
He staggers around and he falls to the ground
And he screams into the sky

Tonight, I hope you get the window
And try to enjoy the view
Cause although we will never see each other again
The aisle isn't good enough for you

3000 miles seems pretty far
But in a storybook it wouldn't be this hard
Yeah there'd always be a happy ending
But it's not a myth and it's not a play
And I've never ever felt this way
Cause there is no happy ending

Tonight, I hope you get the window
And try to enjoy the view
Cause although we will never see each other again
The aisle isn't good enough for you
