A Rocket To The Moon – Fear Of Flying lyrics

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 my seat back and close my eyes
I had this dream that I was on an airplane
Afraid to fly
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 be-fore we die?"
And then I rolled awake

[Chorus:]
Can you take me back to the person I used to be?
Back when you were there for me
I know it seems like forever
But do me this favor please
Way back when we were stupid
And held grudges just to help us sleep
Oh my God, how ridiculous were we?

I stop your breathin' everytime 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
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...

[Chorus:]
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?

Ohhhhhhhh, Ohhhhhhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhhh, Ohhhhhhhhhhh

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...

[Chorus:]
Can you take me back to the person I used to be?
Back when you were there for me
I know it seems like forever
But do me this favor please
Way back when we were stupid
And held grudges just to help us sleep
Oh my God, how ridiculous were we?

Ohhhhhhhh, Ohhhhhhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhhh, Ohhhhhhhhhhh

    In verse 1, it tells us that he likes a girl that he is dreaming(dream girl) but then that girl left her. On the 2nd verse he is telling us that he is afraid to fly, to go to heaven. The airplane is like the transportation going to heaven. Hence he is not dying yet so he woke up.
    Chorus is like the girl died and he wants to be with him. Forever is eternity for him.
