about

I had a dream. I was flying... A World War I biplane... There I was, floating around and having a good time. I was wearing goggles playing hide and seek with clouds. Then I started looking down at the people and the houses and the dirt far below... and suddenly flying seemed like an empty pursuit — I missed being on the ground. It started getting cold and I wanted to land.

lyrics

COMING IN FOR A LANDING
copyright 2006 john common music

i felt a drop.
i felt a drop, now i'm descending.
i'm tired of where i've been.

the messages.
the messages that i've been getting
are finally sinking in.

i've got the wheels down.
i've got the flaps down.
it's time now.
coming in for a landing.

i thought the ground.
i thought the ground was out to hurt me
and put me in my grave.

out of fuel.
out of fuel and feeling lonely
but finally not afraid.

i've got the wheels down.
i've got the flaps down.
it's time now.
coming in for a landing.

coming in for a landing.
it might be the last one...
oh no.

i see the ground.
i see the ground rising toward me.
it's time to put it down.

i wonder who.
i wonder who'll be waiting for me
when i'm finally on the ground.

i've got the wheels down.
i've got the flaps down.
i think it's time now.
coming in for a landing.
it might be the last one...
oh no.
it might be the last one...
oh no.
it might be the last one.
