You stand there
Ready to travel
You can’t wait to say goodbye
She is the one who can’t stop crying
And you hate to see her cry
So you tell her that you love her
You’re going on a holiday, not going to die!

You are little and you’re anxious
You turn to dad and mom
They tell you not to worry
Traveling by plane is the safest one of all
So you sit back and relax
Think of all the fun things you will do
And you look at your baby brother
He is smiling, so are you

You were about to unwind
When there is the announcement of special news
Probably politics, new elections
Someone new we got to choose

The sound of breaking glass
Somebody tell me this isn’t true
Burning lungs, endless ringing phone
No proper goodbye for me and you

Pieces of the airplane
The stuffed animal who holds hundreds of stories
Suitcases, favorite clothes
Pictures, thousands of memories

What started of as a beginning
A holiday, a big adventure
Being reunited
Turned into an end

Heads are filled with questions
Pain, anger and so much more
Only one thing is certain
They’ll never walk through that door

These words won’t bring them back
Oh if my words could only do
But if you ever feel so lonely
Just take a look around you

It’s easy to find the difference
Between him, her and you
Now look closer, please do so
You’ll find what we humans all have in common

We find it hard to let someone go
