another plane went down lyrics – shawn colvin


another plane went down today
in the atlantic nine miles off sh-r-
and every single black car
that goes by just might be yours

i haven? t moved from this spot
i sit here, watching tv in bed
i wanna see if the crash was sabotage
i wanna know if everyone is dead

and i remember when i was fifteen
me and liz would ride around
we liked to smoke in the car in the winter
with all the windows rolled down

i had a dream a plane exploded
over a lake one afternoon
i still remember the feeling when i woke up
i can? t describe the magnitude

so many other dreams
the one i had today
you and the italian woman naked
your fingers between her legs

she lay like a body in the water
she barely made a sound
she fell as quiet, as quiet
as a leaf falling to the ground

meanwhile back on earth
i told you to f-ck off and go away
i? ve gotta call my friend
who moved from new york to l.a.

five days before christmas last year
his girlfriend died in a plane crash
and he says the way that it happen is your heart
is so heavy it rips away upon impact

and then you just bleed inside
you don? t even feel a thing
they found her on a hill in columbia
intact among the debris

so many other dreams
the ones where i? m on death row
the ones where i don? t know why
the ones where my parents drove

oh, i wish i was with you now
down at the sixth street bar
laughing at the singer
smoking in the car
