When “From a Window Seat”, the new song from Dawes, came out a couple of months ago I didn’t pay much attention to the lyrics. But recently, I heard it playing in a restaurant and actually paid attention, and realized that it perfectly captures the flying experience.
With lyrics like these, if ever there was as song that deserved to be named the Frequent-Flyer’s Anthem, “From a Window Seat” deserves the title.
I’m buckle in my seat belt, plug my headset in a chair
And to the music, I watch flight attendants move
They are pointing out the exits, but it looks more like a prayer
Or an ancient dance their bloodline reaches through
These planes are built for sifting through the warriors from the men
I’ve got time to sit and watch them for a while
You can see everywhere they’re going, everywhere they’ve been
And how they look out at the clouds each time they smile
And I think, maybe he’s in town for someone’s birthday
Maybe he makes trouble everywhere
But as much he resists the conversation between the rivers and the freeways
He knows it’s always there
Anyway, here’s the video. Enjoy.
Boarding Area is being updated this weekend, so no updates till Monday. Hope you have a great weekend!
