Airplane

Drifting though the atmosphere
And up into space
Leave behind the moon he's sitting
In his special place

Some flutterbies they enter and they
Play around in my soul
And once again part of me
Fills up to be whole

Da da day
Just flying in my airplane.

Peaceful colours everywhere
Purples and deep blues
Feeling so at home here oh
As if up here i grew

It's so beautiful up here now,
Oh I think I might just stay
All alone and by myself
So free and far away

Da da day
I'm with my aeroplane

I can see heaven
Heaven down below
I look at heaven
And an angel who I know
I can see heaven
Heaven down below

Da da day
I'm with my aeroplane

Just happy to be me again.

    General Comment,,to me it feels like it's about love..like most of her songs..but this time about the good sides of love..she's light..and so happy she rises above heaven..she feels like home..she can be herself again..this guy [girl maybe you never know] must've really grew on her..sounds like someone i know=) yes i'm part of the oh-i'm-so-emotional-and-so-deeply-in-love-herd now..always believed that love was something you talked yourself into..well..i couldn't have been more wrong..and i'm in love with that also..

    General CommentCould be about love, but the aloen part in the 5th verse is misleading.

    I think it's just the generally feeling of happiness and pure tranquility with yourself.

    Airplanes actually give me that feeling, looking out at the clouds, with nothing to do but sit and relax and think.

    General CommentIt's about daydreaming and admiring the one you love from afar.


    Drifting though the atmosphere
    And up into space
    Leave behind the moon he's sitting
    In his special place

    - This is like saying the world will continue on while
    you drift on to daydream state.


    Some flutterbies they enter and they
    Play around in my soul
    And once again part of me
    Fills up to be whole

    - She has fallen for a certain someone again but this time
    shes complete and sure of what she's getting into because she's "whole".


    Peaceful colours everywhere
    Purples and deep blues
    Feeling so at home here oh
    As if up here i grew

    - These could be, in her eyes, the tranquil colors of a deep and secure love.
    "As if up here I grew" I think means she's so used to the feeling of loving
    since she was young.


    It's so beautiful up here now,
    Oh I think I might just stay
    All alone and by myself
    So free and far away

    - She feels good at the state of mind that she in that she doesn't
    need anything from the person she admires.


    I can see heaven
    Heaven down below
    I look at heaven
    And an angel who I know
    I can see heaven
    Heaven down below

    - Just pretty much PURE feelings for someone that she admires.


    As you can tell I was pretty bored, but this IS SONGMEANINGS haha

    General CommentI think: She's daydreaming about love and a person! She feels so calm with the thought of him, however she's not with him, alone, looking at him in "heaven." Beautiful song...very peaceful...but again, a little melancholy, I think it's her concept of "I can't be with him" again. Which I love. Haha. <3

    Imogen Heap is my favorite musical artists, and my this is probably in my top five favorite songs of hers... I love it and her.
