Angus & Julia Stone - Big Jet Plane
She said, “Hello, mister, pleased to meet ya”
I wanna hold her, I wanna kiss her
*I was such a dreamer, whatever happened to me?
Followed all the arrows.
Child of the silence, sounds go undetected.
But really what do we know?
Close the door behind you and fade into the distance.
Wish I was invited.
Why I even wondered - the place where I would find you,
follow all the arrows*
Songs of the Road: Travel Tunes
Songs of the Road:
Songs for the road, ramblings, planes and sleepless nights in airports, brought to you by a wanderer with an iPod.
“3x5” by John Mayer. A lovely reminder to not spend too much time behind the lens.
“Tokyo” by Charmaine. A world travel song from a Christian, female vocal artist a bit like Owl City.
“Airplane” by The Indigo Girls. Travelers afraid of flying, you’ve found two kindred spirits in the Indigo Girls.
“Leaving on a Jet Plane” by John Denver. Classic traveling song.
“We May Never Pass This Way Again” by Seals and Crofts. 70’s wandering song.
“Roam” by The B-52’s. ”Roam, if you want to…”
