Flying high, jetplane soarin'
Through the mist, the clouds, early mornin'
nothing's got me down today
Below me, miles beneath
Crystal blue waters, currents strong, coral reef
staring out the cockpit window
Beautiful lady, sat beside me
Partners in crime, lawless fools, running free
nothing behind us to worry over
Destination Paris, sweet escape
Nearly there, simple plans, take shape
Only forward left to run.
Today's lyric of the day comes from one of my top 5 favorite albums of all time- "In The Aeroplane Over the Sea" by Neutral Milk Hotel. The lyric comes from the song of the same name, one of the best songs of the album. Writing a poem around this was hard, because I love the source material so much. But by golly, I tried.
Here's the lyric again:
"What a beautiful face I have found in this place
That is circling all 'round the sun"
