Airheart Lyrics

Her father fought in the great war
In an aeroplane named Bree
He gave his love to a pretty girl
And said, “Baby you’re the one for me”
And though her name was Bree,
He still found it all a shock
When he found out she was an airplane,
The stork began to knock

A baby girl was born
With air rudders on her back
She picked up airwave frequencies
And petrol was her favorite snack
Whale she bubbled noises like an airplane
Every time she sang
And her heart it loved so hungrily,
And roared like a Mustang

That’s why they called her

Airheart
Airheart
That girl was meant to fly
So prep the runway
Airheart
Airheart
That girl will soar away

She was an angel in her blue dress
When Little Jimmy Wright took her to prom
The young pilot said he loved her,
And oil began to clam her palm
Whale he was lost in the sky
And they said he had died,
But I know something more
They only found Jimmy’s goggles,
In his plane upon the floor

Well years went by
And she still looked to the sky,
Her feelings did not disperse
She could fly any plane just like an ace
And kept goggles in her purse
And she swore she still heard Jimmy singing, “That’ll Be the Way Home”
It would haunt her from her radio
In each sky that she would roam

Jimmy’s voice echoed

Airheart
Airheart
I’m sorry that I flew away
But just remember
Airheart
Airheart
Keep flapping and you’ll soar one day

Lets Fly!
Do you wanna sail into the sky?
Soar across the stars?
Sail into the sky?
Soar across the stars?
Sail into the sky?
Soar across the stars?
The stars?
The stars?!
The stars!

Then one fateful day
Ended with a storm streaked sky
Her plane crashed into the mountain side,
Was she flying much too high?
They only found Jimmy’s goggles
In her plane upon the floor
I hope she’s up there somewhere with him
Kissing on a cloudy shore

The birds were singing

Airheart
Airheart
That girl was meant to fly
So prep the runway
Airheart
Airheart
That girl will soar one day

Air-air ha ah art
Air-air ha ah art
Air-air ha ah art
Air-air ha ah art
Air-air ha ah art
Air-air ha ah art
Air-air ha ah art
Airheart!
