"Fear of Flying " as written by and Nicholas/richards Santino....
I took a picture of a girl I once knew
I kept it here in case I'd run into you
The look on your face could light up a room
But instead you left

And now I'm sitting with my head on the dashboard
Push the seat back and close my eyes
I had this dream that I was on an airplane
Afraid to fly

So I tipped my head to the side and I whispered
To this man that was in the aisle
I said "Do you know how long it takes before we die?"
And then I rolled awake

Take me back to the person I used to be
When you were there for me
I know it seems like forever
But do me this favor please
Way back when we were stupid
Held grudges just to help us sleep
Oh my God, how ridiculous were we?

I stop your breathin’ every time I'm around, girl
Your body's sweatin’ and your hands start to shake
I know you can't control your eyes
But I know that your looks, they are fake

So tease me once and I swear I’ll forget
How it feels when you’ve got nothing left
We’ll take it slow and only work at it sometimes
Oh yeah

Take me back to the person I used to be
When you were there for me
I know it seems like forever
But do me this favor please
Way back when we were stupid
Held grudges just to help us sleep
Oh my God, how ridiculous were we?

Woah, woah

I took a picture of a girl I once knew
I kept it here in case I'd run into you
The look on your face could light up a room
But instead you left
And oh you left

Take me back to the person I used to be
When you were there for me
I know it seems like forever
But do me this favor please
Way back when we were stupid
Held grudges just to help us sleep
Oh my God, how ridiculous were we?

Woah, woah

    General Commentyeah its about a girl who changed.
    but he changed too, and thats why hes saying "Can you take me back to the person I used to be"

    I guess everything changes, and he just wants it back to the way things used to be. afraid of flying I guess, is afraid of moving on, and change.
