Airplane

Album: Losing All (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This track is from American hard rock band Day of Fire's third studio album, Losing All. It was co-written by American Idol finalist and Daughtry frontman, Chris Daughtry.
  • Day of Fire vocalist Josh Brown told Artist Direct about the song: "It's written about me and my wife. During the writing of the record, we'd been married for eight years and we were separated for a year there. We almost got a divorce. For me, that song is one of the most truthful songs on the record. It's about wishing you could go back and change things—even if you couldn't change them, you would go back and do it all over again. Dean Deleo from Stone Temple Pilots listened to it and thought it was awesome, so that's good enough for me."
