"Plane" as written by and Jason Mraz Dennis Morris....
Drain the veins in my head
Clean out the reds in my eyes to get by security lines
Dear x-ray machine
Pretend you don't know me so well
I won't tell if you lied
Cry, cause the droughts been brought up
Drinkin' cause you're lookin' so good in your Starbucks cup
I complain for the company that I keep
The windows for sleeping rearrange
And I'm nobody
Well who's laughin' now

I'm leaving your town again
And I'm over the ground that you've been spinning
And I'm up in the air so baby hell yeah
Well Honey, I can see your house from here
If the plane goes down, damn
I'll remember where the love was found
If the plane goes down, damn

Damn, I should be so lucky
Even only 24 hours under your touch
You know I need you so much
I cannot wait to call you
And tell you that I landed somewhere
And hand you a square of the airport
And walk you through the maze of the map
That I'm gazing at
Gracefully unnamed and feeling guilty for the luck
And the look that you gave me
You make me somebody
Ain't nobody knows me
Not even me can see it, yet I bet I'm

I'm leaving your town again
And I'm over the ground that you've been spinning
And I'm up in the air, so baby hell yeah
Oh honey I can see your house from here
If the plane goes down, damn
I'll remember where the love was found
If the plane goes down, damn

You keep me high minded
You get me high

Flax seeds, well they tear me open
And supposedly you can crawl right through me
Taste these teeth please
And undress me from these sweaters better hurry
Cause I'm keeping upward bound now
Oh maybe I'll build my house on your cloud
Here I'm tumbling for you
Stumbling through the work that I have to do
Don't mean to harm you

By leaving your town again
But I'm over the quilt that you've been spinning
But I'm up in the air, said baby hell yeah
Oh honey I can see your house from here
If the plane goes down, damn
I'll remember where the love was found
If the plane goes down, damn
I'll remember where the love was found
If the plane goes down, damn
Well I'll remember where the love was found
If the plane goes down, damn

You keep me high
You get me high minded
You keep me high
You get me high minded

    General Commentthe real meaning to this song is so sweet. in an interview jason explains how he was dating someone he met while touring so it was long distance and they could usually only meet for a day or two. this song came about after a 24 hr meeting with her before they were both flying off to wherever the had to go. jason said they would text a lot since they were so busy and always apart and when he got on the plane this time he was missing her more than usual and he sent her a text that said "if the plane goes down know that i loved you"

    General CommentMan, this song is crazy-amazing.
    I know this isn't what the song means, for me this song means...
    Having met a girl while on vacation or something, and you two become good friends (probably boyfriend-girlfriend). And you two do not live anywhere close to each other (for me, I am separated by an entire Atlantic from the girl that I met...) so that just sucks. I know the lyrics seem to go much deeper, but that's exactly what I get from it (mostly because I am in that situation).

    Danke!

    General CommentOK, that wasn't my most intelligent/relevant post, so let me try something more in depth:

    In the first stanza, Jason says "Well, I'm nobody," while using the pointless if not outright unhealthy security extremes to suggest sluggishness, depression, just murking his way through life. Also, as he does throughout the rest of the song, he's telling "honey" that he can see his/her house from here and will remember where the love was found, but this time it's fairly melodramatic, empty, blase, casual, like he's in a dead-end relationship that they're both pretending is still romantic.

    In the next stanza, "You make me somebody," while sounding more upbeat, more happy and excited about the airport than last time, implying that he found somebody to be with, even temporarily, that he felt a deeper connection with. This is also when he start saying "I can see your house from here..." with more emotion, like this relationship he just started (behind his soon-to-be-ex's back*?) is so much more meaningful than his last one.

    (*Gracefully unnamed and feeling guilty for the luck/ and the look that you gave me: feels guilty about cheating but empowered by not being able to be found out?)

    Next stanza, "Here I'm tumbling down for you," while using images on being cut up, eaten and crawled through to suggest that his new relationship is worse than his old one, as in actually damaging to him instead of simply pointless. Also, he mentions toward the end that "maybe I'll build my house on your cloud," giving the impression that he fantasizes about the relationship surviving but that it is impossible in a real world, that his last resort would send him crashing to the ground from miles in the air. (He also starts saying "If the plane goes down" a LOT more.) Also, while he says d*** about every other word for most of the song, this becomes the first time he says d*** YOU, implying the relationship has gotten incredibly aggressive, antagonistic, confrontational, and then never says "I'll remember where the love was found" again.

    My InterpretationObviously this song is telling that he has a relationship with this girl whom he can't be with at all time because he had to go touring to countries (possibly). The relationship, however, hardly working out. Yet he's too in love to leave her.

    "I'm leaving your town again
    And I'm over the ground that you've been spinning"
    The city always reminds him of the girl.

    "If the plane goes down, damn
    I'll remember where the love was found "
    Everytime he leaves the town where his lover lives, he wish he could make the plane to land because he really needs to see her, but then he'll remember when he first met this girl and all other memories they had.

    "Damn, I should be so lucky
    Even only 24 hours under your touch
    You know I need you so much "
    He needs to spend time with her but all he got was only a day or two so he feel like he should feel lucky for it.

    "I cannot wait to call you
    And tell you that I landed somewhere
    And hand you a square of the airport"
    He has a job (probably touring as a musician) that requires him go to places all over the world. So every time he leaves her city, he cannot wait until the plane lands so he could call the girl right away and tell her how the plane trip (and/or the whole trip) was.

    "And walk you through the maze of the map
    That I'm gazing at"
    He really wants his lover to also see all the beautiful places he has been.

    "You make me somebody
    Ain't nobody knows me
    Not even me can see it"
    At the first verse he also says "And I'm nobody". This means the girl has a great influence on him. He feels extraordinary when she's around.

    "Cause I'm keeping upward bound now
    Oh maybe I'll build my house on your cloud"
    He tries to make time for her (minimize the overseas trip) and wish she could go with him through the trip.

    "You keep me high
    You get me high minded"
    She makes him believe that they're gonna be alright, although it's killing him.

    General CommentHas anybody seen the final destination movies? SciFi channel seems to love them, so i've seen FD2 and the first half of FD1. I'm just thinking that since "Highway to Hell" from AC/DC was amazing/perfect on the radio right before the huge pile-up in 2, was this song mentioned before the plane explosion in 1?
