Allan, Gary - Watching Airplanes Lyrics




Sittin Out here on the hood of this truck looking up
At a caramel colored sunset sky
Checkin my watch doin the math in my head
Counting back words to when you said goodbye
Well those runway lights are gettin brighter

Im just sittin' out here watching airplanes
Take off and fly
Tryin to figure out which one you might be on
And why you dont love me anymore
Right now im sittin' out here watching airplanes

I would've lied could've cried should've tried harder
Done anything to make you stay
I wonder what you'd do if you looked out your window
Saw me runnin down the runway just like i was crazy
That fence is too high so am i

So I'm just sittin' out here watching airplanes
Take off and fly
Tryin to figure out which one you might be on
And why you don't love me anymore
By now i know you're thirty thousand feet above me
But a million miles away, a million miles away
By now i know i outta act like you don't love me

But im just sittin' out here watching airplanes
Take off and fly
Im just sittin' out here watching airplanes
Take off and fly
Tryin to figure out which one you might be on
And why you don't love me anymore

Yeah im just sittin' out here watching airplanes
Go by, by, by
Im just sittin' out here watching airplanes
Baby bye, bye, bye

  17. Mosies Gonzales Flores

    I've always loved this record it's been a hit as far as I'm concerned

  18. poetic pisces

    One of the saddest and one of my fav songs ever. Just thought I'd watch the video. He reminds me of my ex and so does this song.

  19. okie gamer

    The girl of you're dreams sitting there in a red sundress looking just Perfect!

  20. Ashley Kettle

    This song reminds me of my husband. I sit out on my porch stress-smoking a cigarette wondering why he's cheated and why he's been so distant lately. I'm sure it has nothing to do with his infidelity. 😏 I've been damn good to him. Why do men cheat and mistreat good women??

  21. Roe Johnson

    Absolutely man is amazing

  22. andre white

    Throwbacks can anyone relate I remember when my older brother used to sing this song to my little sister when she was a baby it just brings back memories

  23. Appalachian Fire

    Before 9/11 the best place to take a date was the airport to watch airplanes and to make out on top of the parking garage. I miss those days.

  24. TheDrummingKangaroo

    This song always makes me think of parking my truck on a service road next to John Wayne airport & lying in the bed, watching the incoming planes...
