The Ready Set — Airplanes lyrics

[Intro]
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now, a wish right now, a wish right now.
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now, a wish right now, a wish right now.

[Verse 1]
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 the smashing and the crashing,
And all the glitz and the 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 that phone in your lap
And you're 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!

[Chorus]
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now, a wish right now, a wish right now.
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now, a wish right now, a wish right now.

[Verse 2]
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,
Get back to when I was trying to get a tip at subway.
And back when I was rapping for the hell of it,
But nowadays we rappin to stay relevant.
I'm guessing that if we could make some wishes out of airplanes,
Then maybe, oh maybe I'd go back to the days.
Before the politics that we call rap game,
And back to when ain't nobody listened to my mix tape,
And back before 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 could make some wishes out of airplanes!

[Chorus]
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now, a wish right now, a wish right now.
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now, a wish right now, a wish right now.

[Outro]
I could really use a wish right now, right now
I-I-I could really use a wish right now, right now
Like, like, like shooting stars, stars
I-I-I could really use a wish right now, right now
A wish, a wish right now
