Driving down the highway past O'Hare / Planes stretch across the sky like half a dozen stars of Bethlehem / Hard to pinpoint why I'm feeling like the world's about to end / Some folks wanna build a wall, some folks are gunning men down / There's no sense to it all but sure that's obvious by now / While the ghosts of our worst selves hang around / Haunting corridors of binary code // CHORUS: If I could hear that song one more time (x3) / This would all make sense to me // All the neon storefront psychics are being replaced / By artisan tacos and yoga studios / Same difference I guess / Never got my fortune read there anyhow / We slipped under the fence, cemetery in the snow / Kissed on a stone bench, souls resting in peace below / Still haven't learned the difference between love and letting go / So I'm just casting new actors for the part of my new hope // CHORUS // Some days I'm left speechless by beauty of the world / Some days I'm left speechless by the cruelty of the world / And in often between I don't know what to say / So I drove from Lake Shore to the runway at midnight / Mumbling prayers to no one in particular / Keep singing the same song / Till we finally get the notes right / I look to you to lead me home / O holding pattern plane lights // CHORUS //
