Small Plane, the song

As reported by Flying Singer.
This song by Bill Callahan wasn’t on Apple Music a few years ago when I first found it. But here it is now. Low-key words about the wonder of flight.

Small Plane

You used to take me up
I watched and learned
How to fly
No navigation system
Beyond our eyes
Watching
I always went wrong in the same place
Where the river splits towards the sea
That couldn't possibly be
You and me
Sometimes you sleep while I take us home
That's when I know
We really have a home
I never like to land
Getting back up seems impossibly grand
We do it with ease
Danger, I never think of danger
I really am a lucky man
I really am a lucky man
Flying this small plane
I like it when I take the controls from you
And when you take the controls from me
I really am a lucky man
I really am a lucky man
Flying this small plane
Eyes scan the path ahead
And all around
Songwriter: Bill Callahan
