"Landing Field" as written by and John David Foster Joey Burns....
Tired and heavy
Flat handed all the way
Beggin' in hard
Going 'round again
Sky stretch out
Speed without a sound
Sun's settin' low
Nearly touch the ground

Not ready to come down
Not ready to come down
Sun's settin' low
Nearly touch some ground
Not ready to come down
Not ready

Fall's rollin' in
Still wanna climb
On an empty highway
�Tween city lights
Tired and heavy still
Trouble winding down
Stars are saggin' low
Shootin' for the ground

Not ready to come down
Not ready to come down
Stars saggin' low
Shootin' for the ground
Not ready to come down
Not ready to come down
Not ready

Arms folding across against her chest
Didn't think her glow would ever wane
She's vanished like that afternoon
Blown about by the clouds
Now she's only present in the rain

Not ready to come down
Not ready to come down
Sun's settin' low
Nearly touch the ground

Not ready to come down
Not ready to come down
Stars saggin' low
Shootin' for the ground

It's time to bring it down
It's time to bring it down
This time
This time
This time

    General CommentThis song just makes me think of someone driving for miles in the middle of nowhere, the sun is setting and he's deep in thought about a girl who has left him. He's remembering a particular time with her when she was glowing and they were happy and he didn't think it would ever go away. But now she's gone and so are the happy times. He's not ready to give up on her yet, not ready to come down.

    But it's getting dark and the stars are coming out, and he's alone on an empty road, and he realises he's on his own now and it is time to give up hope. It's time to bring it down this time.
