Twenty four C don't believe in God
But he always prays when the thing takes off
And the grandma that he's next to watches the window
Three B's got her headphones on
She's still not used to her daddy being gone
She gets to see him every three months for the weekend
Just people in planes

Seventeen A's in an exit row
Waiting for his Jack and Coke to show
Just wishing he didn't settle so fast in college
I'm over here in a middle seat
Watching the world, but half asleep
Wondering why there's never movies on the ones I'm on

And it occurs to me
Maybe I've got too much time to think
But it helps to be reminded how we're

Just people in planes, when it comes down to it
We're side by side on the same ride
There's not a whole lot of difference
At the end of the day,
We just want to know it's going to be okay
Counting on somebody we can't see to land this thing
We're just people in planes

Hey, do you remember back when
Your dad could still lift you then
He'd pick you up, and you'd think that you were flying
You'd spread your arms and start to land
Do you remember how to laugh like that
Why does that baby feel like crying

We 're just people in planes, when it comes down to it
We're side by side on the same ride
There's not a whole lot of difference
At the end of the day,
We just want to know it's going to be okay
Counting on somebody we can't see to land this thing
We're just people in planes

The girl in front of me spilling their guts to some lady
She's never met and will never see again
Has been weighing for a long time on her conscience
There's seat kickers and loud talkers
Honeymoon lovers and several in the back there looking hung over
Must be coming back from Mexico... Or Vegas

People in planes, when it comes down to it
We're side by side on the same ride
There's not a whole lot of difference
At the end of the day,
We just want to know it's going to be okay
Counting on somebody we can't see to land this thing
We're all waiting on somebody we can't see to land this thing
We're just people in planes

Just people in planes
