Watching Airplanes
Gary Allan Lyrics


Sitting out here on the hood of this truck looking up
At a caramel colored sunset sky
Checking my watch doing the math in my head
Counting back words to when you said goodbye
Well those runway lights are getting brighter

I'm just sitting out here watching airplanes
Take off and fly
Trying to figure out which one you might be on
And why you don't love me anymore
Right now I'm sitting 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 running down the runway just like I was crazy
That fence is too high so am I

So I'm just sitting out here watching airplanes
Take off and fly
Trying 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 ought to act like you don't love me

I'm just sitting out here watching airplanes
Take off and fly
Trying to figure out which one you might be on
And why you don't love me anymore
Right now I'm sitting out here watching airplanes

Yeah I'm just sitting out here watching airplanes
Go by, by, by
I'm just sitting out here watching airplanes
Baby bye, bye, bye

For those that don't know, Gary's wife committed suicide in 2004. Absolutely tragic. Gary took a break from music after the incident. Then in 2007, Gary came back with this single. The song ''Watching Airplanes'' is actually dedicated to his wife. Gary's wife was a flight attendant, and they met on one of Gary's flights back home. So, he's ''Watching Airplanes'' to remember her. "Trying to figure out which one you might be on'' is the one lyric that absolutely breaks my heart. To me, this will always be Gary's best song.
