Somewhere in New York City you are lying with new lovers
And I'll be sleeping on that thought tonight
Somewhere the moon is leaning into your open window
Illuminating her in perfect light

Tonight I'm drowning in a sea
Of crumpled paper memories
And my tears, like sour milk, are spilling thick upon these pages of lies of love you wrote and I believed

So I'm flyin' love letter airplanes tonight
Torn paper love letter airplanes tonight
I'm flyin' love letter airplanes tonight
Heartbreakin' love letter airplanes tonight

6 months in New York City and I am heavy with contrition
And as loveless as the night stand by my bed
Down here your stars are dropping like brilliant diamond boulders
Unloading all your wishes on my head

Tonight I'm drowning in a sea
Of blank paper apologies
And my words, like dried up milk, are reading stale upon these pages
Cause there's nothing I can say that you'll believe

So I'm flyin' love letter airplanes tonight
Torn paper love letter airplanes tonight
I'm flyin' love letter airplanes tonight
Heartbreaking love letter airplanes tonight

"Your beauty is enduring like the bed beneath the river.
Oh, to be a stone along your water's edge."
Such sweet words on these pages for my pain to empty over and wonder which of them were truly meant

So I'm flyin' love letter airplanes tonight
Torn paper love letter airplanes tonight
I'm flyin' love letter airplanes tonight
Heartbreaking love letter airplanes tonight
