Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Dear Mr. Aeroplane
Please don't fail to fly
My map is broken as I'm still workin'
But my heart is just getting by
There's an hourglass in my head
And a clock whose hands are spinning 'round
The sand is heavy, but I'm just ready
For all of it to come down

[Chorus]
When will I get to see your face?
When will I get to hear your heart race?
When will I be yours, you'll be mine?
When will we just get the timing right?

[Verse 2]
A deaf man can't hear
A blind man can't see
The truth in my "I love you"s want nothing but you
Right here next to me
Your hands can't hold mine
Through the telephone
My voice is lonely, my heart controls me
Please come home

[Chorus]
When will I get to see your face?
When will I get to hear your heart race?
When will I be yours, you'll be mine?
When will we just get the timing right?

[Bridge]
I feel you holding me so tight
I only feel these things at night
Visit me in my dream
The only place you'll never leave

[Chorus]
When will I get to see your face?
When will I get to hear your heart race?
When will I be yours, you'll be mine?
When will we just get the timing right?

[Chorus]
When will I get to see your face?
When will I get to hear your heart race?
When will I be yours, you'll be mine?
When will we just get the time right?
