Airplane – Indigo Girls
Nearer My God to Thee

Airplane Lyrics

Up on the airplane
nearer my God to thee
I start making a deal
inspired by gravity
if I did wrong I won’t do it again
cause I can be sweet and good and nice
and if I had enemies their friends
I’ll hold to my life with the grip of a vice
and I’m up on the airplane
nearer my God to thee
I start making a deal
inspired by gravity
that little spot on the ground is my hometown
I like to call it my home and it’s sweet
I’d rather take a seat down there
than a throne up here up above 30,000 feet
and I’m up on the airplane
I never should have read my horoscope
or the fortune on the bubble strip
saying what you think won’t happen will
a great thing to read before a trip
on an airplane
pilot says the big blue sky’s like a swimming pool
big fluffy clouds like a feather bed
I’d rather have a real pillow underneath my head
lying in my bed which is in my hometown
which is on the ground
far from an airplane
(my bed my hometown)
far from an airplane
(on the ground my bed my hometown)
far from an airplane
(on the ground my bed my hometown)
on the airplane
(on the ground)
[I’ll be making a deal]
on the airplane
(on the ground)
[I’ll be making a deal]
on the airplane
[I’ll be making a deal]
[I’ll be making a deal]
[I’ll be making a deal]
