"Watching Airplanes" as written by James Beavers and Jonathan Singleton....
Sittin' out here on the hood of this truck
Lookin' up at a caramel colored sunset sky
Checkin' my watch, doin' the math in my head
Countin' back words to when you said, "Goodbye"
Well, those runway lights are gettin' brighter

I'm just sittin' out here watchin' airplanes
Take off and fly
Tryin' to figure out which one you might be on
And why you don't love me anymore
(Right now I'm sittin' out here watchin' airplanes)

I woulda lied
Coulda cried
Shoulda tried harder
Done anything to make you stay
I wonder what you'd do
If you looked out your window
And saw me runnin' down the runway
Just like I was crazy
But that fence is too high
So am I

So I'm just sittin' out here watchin' airplanes
Take off and fly
Tryin' to figure out which one you might be on
And why you don't love me anymore

By now I know you're 30,000 feet above me
But a million miles away, a million miles away
By now I know I outta act like you don't love me

But I'm just sittin' out here watchin' airplanes
Take off and fly
I'm just sittin' out here watchin' airplanes
Take off and fly
Tryin' to figure out which one you might be on
And why you don't love me anymore
Yeah, I'm just sittin' out here watchin' airplanes

Go by, by, by
I'm just sittin' out here watchin' airplanes
Baby, bye bye, bye, bye, bye
Yeah, I'm just sittin' out here watchin' airplanes

    General Comment~I love this song, I could listen to it all the time. I love how this song is done, the lyrics fit with the instruments so well. Its kind of a sad song, and always makes me think of my ex boyfriend, but in a good way.~
