Oh Land – Bird In An Aeroplane lyrics
[Verse 1]
Feathered to the tips
Light weight, but strong
I can only go this long
Iron, steel, and smoke
Your power is endless
I’m only flesh and bones

[Pre-Chorus]
Every machine has a promise to break
Stuck in a dream that I may not escape

[Chorus]
I pray for hurricanes
You take off when I want to stay
Out of steam, I’m off terrain
I’m a bird in an aeroplane

[Verse 2]
Crossing continents
We’re going in loops
Tell me will we ever land
Longing to return
To somewhere I’ve known, something quite familiar (oh oh)

[Pre-Chorus]
Every machine has a promise to break
Stuck in a dream that I may not escape

[Chorus]
I pray for hurricanes
You take off when I want to stay
Out of steam, I’m off terrain
I’m a bird in an aeroplane

[Verse 3]
We’re flying over mountains higher every day
I’m trying to keep up
Trying to match your game
While you are gaining height I’m fading into grey
And away...

[Chorus]
I pray for hurricanes
You take off when I want to stay
Out of steam, I’m off terrain
I’m a bird in an aeroplane
