lyrics

You've got your head in a book
I look up the title on my phone
Just like me you would rather be alone
That's fair
In fact I wouldn't dare
As you sit there and read
I just look down at my screen

I wouldn't know where to begin
Looks like there's no end in sight
Is this wearing you thin?
Are you travelling light?
The sign displays
That our flight has been delayed
But you don't even engage
And just slowly turn the page

I think of how you used to say you could read me like a book
And how you'd always write these little notes
In every one that I would lend to you
And once across a whole page
You drew a portrait of yourself
Then closed it
Without a word
And put it back up on the shelf

I'm always scared to fly
I wonder if you're afraid too
They say it's safer than driving
I'm not sure if that's true
And just as I start to look it up to see
A loud speaker intervenes
To call us to our seats

I think of how you used to say you could read me like a book
And how you'd always write these little notes
In every one that I would lend to you
And once around a whole page
You drew a portrait of yourself
Then closed it
Without a word
And put it back up on the shelf

We're finally on the plane
You start to take your seat
And it turns out it's right next to me
You look down and stop because you see
That your book is on my screen
And we both just freeze
And I sink into my seat
