B.o.B. – Airplanes - OFFICIAL VIDEO found on Rap

B.o.B. featuring Hayley Williams
[Chorus – Hayley Williams]
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now (wish right now, wish [ Read More … ]right now)
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now (wish right now, wish right now)

(B.o.B.- Verse 1)
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
The smashing and crashing
And all the glitz and the glam and the fashion
And all the pandemonium and all the madness
There comes a time when you fade to the blackness
When you’re staring at that phone in your lap
And hopin’ 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 airplanes airplanes
Sorry I’m late
I’m on my way
So don’t close that gate
If I don’t make that
Then I switch my flight
And I’ll be right back at it
By the end of the night

(Chorus – Hayley Williams)

[B.o.B – Verse 2]
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
Back when I was rapping for the hell of it
But now days we rapping to stay relevant
I’m guessing that if we can make some wishes out of airplanes
Then maybe oh maybe I’ll go back to the days
Before the politics that we call the rap game
And back when ain’t nobody listened to my mixtape
And back before I tried to cover up my slang
But this is for decater
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 out of airplanes

[Chorus – Hayley Williams]

    I don’t know if you still write or check this, but I was skimming through some of these posts, and God, so much of what you say you feel is the same thing I hear inside my head at all time about most everything I’ve read thus far. So, I’ve deduced that you are a fellow perfectionist (of course, it doesn;t exist, but for us, ‘perfection’ is about being ‘good emough’). I just wanted to say that men will be men. They watch porn. It’s like a ‘blankie’ to a small child, we will never understand it until we have penises. It doesn’t have to do with you( I know, until we know they do it, and the logic goes right out the window)But, as perfectionists, it does us a great disservice to believe that we are the majority. We are not, and if you doubt this fact, just go have a looksy at the general public. I feel that when we start to understand that our own standards of everything are too high, then we can lower the bar to human proportions where our loved ones are concerned. It makes for many less resentments, at least.
