"Airplanes Part 1" as written by Alexander Junior Grant, Marshall B. Iii Mathers, Bobby Ray Jr. Simmons, Jeremy Dussolliet, Tim Sommers and Luis Edgardo Resto....
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now
Wish right now
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now
Wish right now

I could use a dream or a genie or a wish
To go back to a place much simpler than this
'Cause after all the partying and smashin' and crashin'
And all the glitz and the glam and the fashion
And all the pandemonium and all the madness
There comes a time where you fade to the blackness
And when you starin' at that phone in yo lap
And you hopin' but them people never call you back
But that's just how the story unfolds
You get another hand soon after you fold
And when your plans unravel in the sand what would you wish for if you had once chance?
So airplane, airplane I'm sorry I'm late
I'm on my way so don't close that gate
If I don't make that then I'll switch my flight
And I'll be right back at it by the end of the night

Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now
Wish right now
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now
Wish right now

Somebody take me back to the days
Before this was a job, before I got paid
Before it ever mattered what I had in my bank
Yeah, back when I was tryin' get into that subway
And back when I was rappin' for the hell of it
But nowadays we rappin' to stay relevant
I'm guessin' that if we could make some wishes out of airplanes
Then maybe oh maybe I'll go back to the days
Before the politics that we call the rap game
And back when ain't nobody listen to my mixtape
And back before I tried to cover up my slang
But this is for the Cada, what's up Bobby Ray
So can I get a wish to end the politics
And get back to the music that started this shit
So here I stand and then again I say
I'm hoping we could make some wishes out of airplanes

Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now
Wish right now
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now
Wish right now

I could really use a wish right now
Like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now

    General Commenthaving hayley in this song was perfect. i don't think any other singer could have made needing a wish right now sound so real

    General Commentawesome song. and hayley is, as always, amazing.

    pretty obvious meaning..the song's about how he misses the old days, when he used to rap just for the sake of rapping, when the world was way simpler, with none of that glamorous living madness.

    General CommentCassiebluv, I'm pretty sure they use airplanes because shooting stars are so uncommon and there are always airplanes in the sky. So if they could pretend the airplanes were shooting stars they could make a wish. Atleast that's what I thought.

    General CommentI don't know if it's just another song for Haley, but when she sings the chorus I can almost hear something like a yearning. It just feels so sincere.

    General CommentI really love this song. It's already become one of my favorites.
    Hayley's angelic voice makes anything incredible.

    @WhoIAm06,
    I got that too. Her humming throughout the song makes everything sound so serene.

    The line "and get back to the music that started this shit" stands out to me. It's like he's emphasizing the two words, saying that today's music is shit compared to how it was.

    General CommentNot taking anything away from Hayley's performance, but it should be noted that she wasn't the writer of her part.

    General CommentBut this is for the 808 what Bobby Ray

    I really have no idea what he says here. I'm pretty sure this isn't it but I didn't want to put nothing. Any thoughts?
