  • Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shootin' stars
    I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now
    Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shootin' stars
    I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now

    Yeah, yeah I could use a dream or a genie or a wish
    To go back to a place much simpler than this
    Cause after all the partying and smashing and crashing
    And all the glitz and glam and the fashion
    And all the pandemonium and all the madness
    There comes a time when you fade to the blackness
    And when you're staring at the phone in your lap
    And you hoping but them people never call you back
    But that's just how the story unfolds
    You get another hand soon after you fold
    And when your plans unravel in the sand
    What would you wish for, if you had one chance?
    So airplane airplane sorry I'm late
    I'm on my way so don't close that gate
    If I don't make that then I'll switch my flight and
    I'll be right back at it by the end of the night

    Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shootin' stars
    I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now
    Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shootin' stars
    I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now

    Yeah yeah somebody take me back to the days
    Before this was a job before I got paid
    Before it ever mattered what I had in my bank
    Yeah back when I was trying to get a tip at subway
    And back then I was rapping for the hell of it
    But nowadays we rapping to stay relevant
    I'm guessing if can make some wishes out of airplanes
    Then maybe oh maybe I'll go back to the days
    Before the politics that we call the rap game
    And back when ain't nobody listened to my mix tape
    And back before when I tried to cover up my slang
    But this is for the Decatur what's up Bobby Ray
    So can I get a wish to end the politics
    And get back to the music that started this shit
    So here I stand and then again I say
    I'm hoping we can make some wishes outta airplanes

    Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shootin' stars
    I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now
    Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shootin' stars
    I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now

    I could really use a wish right now
    I, I, I could really use a wish right now
    Like, like, like shootin' stars
    I, I, I could really use a wish right now
    A wish a wish right now Writer/s: JUSTIN FRANKS, JEREMY DUSSOLLIET, TIMOTHY SOMMERS, CHRISTINE DOMINGUEZ, BOBBY RAY SIMMONS, ALEXANDER JUNIOR GRANT
