Mangan, Dan - In The Aeroplane Over The Sea Lyrics

What a beautiful face
I have found in this place
That is circling all round the sun
What a beautiful dream
That could flash on a screen
Be gone in a blink of an eye from me
Soft and sweet
Let me hold it close and keep it here with me

And one day we will die
And our ashes will fly
From the aeroplane over the sea
But for now we are young
Let us lay in the sun
And count every beautiful thing we can see
Love to be
In the arms of all I'm keeping here with me

What a curious night
We have found here tonight
There is music that sounds from the street
There are lights in the clouds
Anna's ghost all around
Hear her voice as it's ringing and reeling through me
Soft and sweet
How the notes all bend and reach above the trees

Oh, how I remember you
How I would push my fingers through
Your mouth to make those muscles move
That made your voice so smooth and sweet
But now we keep where we don't know
All secrets sleep in winter clothes
With the ones we loved so long ago
Now we don't even know his name

What a beautiful face
I have found in this place
That is circling all round the sun
When we meet on a cloud
I'll be laughing out loud
I'll be laughing at everything I see
Can't believe how strange it is to be anything at all
