I felt it from a window seat
Of a westbound plane over Kansas City
On that flight I took to get myself away from you
When suddenly my hands went numb
And my face turned red and my breath got heavy
Prayed to that God that I’d been cursing – don’t let it happen again so soon

Took one last sip of Scotch and kicked my shoes off
Dimmed the lights and pulled the shades
And just tried to get some rest

What if I told you I would love you like the world was ending
If you could only meet me on the other side tonight?
And if this plane goes down in flames inside some field or ocean
Just know the last thing on my mind was how I never loved you right

I heard you date some author now
He’s a damn good writer but don’t put you in his stories
So I thought I’d write you just one more for old time’s sake
Remember when you told me this town
Was just like a magnet pulling us back here?
I never thought that I’d run far enough or strong enough to break

Hummed one last lonely melody as I drift to sleep
Crossed my fingers and hoped dreaming
Would carry me away

Baby, I will turn this plane around
And land it right outside your house
And I will take you in my arms
And never let you go again
So if I fall right from the sky
Now you will know exactly why
As I whisper in your ear
The things I never said…

Never said…
