(Hayley)
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now, a wish right now, a wish right now
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now, a wish right now, a wish right now

(B.o.B.)
I could use a dream or a genie or a wish
To go back to a place much simpler than this
Cause after all the partying and smashing and crashing
And all the glitz and glam and the fashion
And all the pandemonium and all the madness
There comes a time when you fade to the blackness
And when you're staring at the phone in your lap
And you hoping but them people never call you back
But that's just how the story unfolds
You get another hand soon after you fold
And when your plans unravel in the sand
What would you wish for if you had one chance?
So airplane airplane sorry I'm late
I'm on my way so don't close that gate
If I don't make that then I'll switch my flight and
I'll be right back at it by the end of the night

(Hayley)
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now, a wish right now, a wish right now
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now, a wish right now, a wish right now

(B.o.B.)
Yeah somebody take me back to the days
Before this was a job before I got paid
Before it ever mattered what I had in my bank
Yeah back when I was trying to get a tip at Subway
And back when I was rapping for the hell of it
But nowadays we rapping to stay relevant
I'm guessing that if we can make some wishes outta airplanes
Then maybe oh maybe I'd go back to the days
Before the politics that we call the rap game
And back when ain't nobody listened to my mix tape
And back before I tried to cover up my slang
But this is for Decatur what's up Bobby Ray
So can I get a wish to end the politics
And get back to the music that started this shit
So here I stand and then again I say
I'm hoping we can make some wishes outta airplanes

(Hayley)
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now, a wish right now, a wish right now
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now, a wish right now, a wish right now

(B.o.B.)
I could really use a wish right now
I could really use a wish right now
Like, like, like shootin stars
I could really use a wish right now
A wish a wish right now

    I love this song so much.!
    It's cute.!
    haha. even my schoolmates loved it.!
    I sang it at school and they ask me what title is it. and who's the Artist.
    I said. " the title is AIRPLANE BY: B.O.B feat. HAYLEY WILLIAMS. " they we're so shocked.! they answered, " HAYLEY WILLIAMS.?!?!?!?! are you sure.?! OMG.! I WANT TO GO HOME.! AND SEARCH THIS SONG.! I'M EXCITED.! WEW.! "

    and then I laughed. THEY ARE SO WEIRD. haha. :D

    DUH.! BTW.
    I really love this song.!
    I can relate.!
    Sometimes when I look up in the sky...
    I shout.! " MOM.! SHOOTING STAR.! COME OUT AND MAKE A WISH.! "

    then, I realize it's an airplane. :( haha.
    our neighbourhood even laughed at me sometimes. :D
    EMBARRASSED.! haha.

    At first I thought it was weird of hayley to go to punk to hip hop so fast and I didn't really like it... I look at the lyrics now and they're really meaningful... I love it!
