"Up in the Air" as written by and John Engelbert....
Up in the air, just above the clouds
Looking out the window
Oh what a beautiful sight

Up in the air, way above the ground
Unplug my ears and think
What a terrible sound

That the engines make, it don't seem right
Being here it don't make no sense to me
Although I'm up in the air
I can go anywhere, up in the air

Up in the air in an old machine
Black clouds, rain, thunder outside
What a beautiful sight

Up in the air, cheating on gravity
But I'm stuck, stuck in this shell of steel
It ain't place for me

The noise that the engines make
It don't seem right
Being here it don't make no sense to me
Although I'm up in the air
I can go anywhere, but then I see –

The fine line between space and the atmosphere
And suddenly everything makes sense to me
I could go anywhere, without a shell or a care

And when the aeroplane breaks in half
Just leave your body behind
Then we could all float around, no run and hide

No worries up there, save the treasure you've found
It's all yours to keep, in the air - don't be scared
