Death by Plane

Album: not on an album (2006)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a short but powerful song by Team Sleep, not released on an album but still a very popular song among TS fans. The song seems to hinder on both an emotional tinge of loss and gain: "When I waved to you, then you knew I was gone, you calmed down. So, there in the air, where I can't move, I say, just say to you, goodbye my love, goodbye." The song conveys utter sadness but relief - the singer seems to be speaking to someone, as if he's saying he's sad to leave but can't reach out to his love anymore. She's lost to him in a place where he can't reach, there is a feeling he cares so much but is stuck between loss and accepting that it has already happened. >>

  • Andy from Springfield, NjThis song is very beautiful and sad. Chino can express so much emotion in his music. I want this song played at my funeral.
  • Scott from Dallas, TxIts actually about 9/11. About the loss of loved ones on that day.
