"For the Fences" as written by Jonathan Alexander Letcher Albright, Michael Craig Deming, Ryan Ackerman Downing, Jonathan David Owens, John Wesley Chester and Meagan Beth Plummer....
If you want to go,
Let's go right now.
I am a plane falling
From the clouds
And I want to see your face
Right before I hit the ground.
If you want to go,
Let's go.

This map was just some paper
Before the color and the artist's hand.
Don't you see what that makes me?
I am the ink still waiting in his pen.
Now the greens and blues and deepest reds
Are spreading through my heart
And up to my head.
Spill me out, I'm coming clean.
And I mean everything I've said.

Some flowers for your troubles, girl,
And a penny for your thoughts.
I'm not sure what you're looking for
But it ain't half of what you've got.

If you want to go,
Let's go right now.
I am a plane falling
From the clouds
And I want to see your face
Right before I hit the ground.
If you want to go,
Let's go right now.

You are a bright light in the city.
High heels, bad grammar, and a pretty face.
I am the noise coming from the street
And I know you need a quiet place.
You are the ink when pen hits paper;
The spill that leaves a gorgeous stain
You might just be the very best mistake
That anyone has ever made.

Some flowers for your troubles, girl,
And a penny for your thoughts.
I'm not sure what you're looking for
But it ain't half of what you've got.

If you want to go,
Let's go right now.
I am a plane falling
From the clouds
And I want to see your face
Right before I hit the ground.
If you want to go,
Let's go right now.
