    "Another Plane Went Down" Lyrics

    Shawn Colvin

    Another plane went down today
    In the Atlantic nine miles off shore
    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 fuck 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
