B.o.B feat. Hayley Williams and Eminem, “Airplanes Pt. 2” (Lyrics)

19 Apr

The next time someone tells you hip-hop doesn’t have stories, play this song. Preorder The Adventures of Bobby Ray if you’re so inclined.

Lyrics after the jump. Thoughts about the song and B.o.B over here.

Lyrics:

(Hayley Williams)

Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now
Wish right now

Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now
Wish right now

(Dreamin’)
(Of fallin’)
(Dreamin’)
(Of fallin’)

(B.o.B)

Let’s pretend like it’s ’98
Like I’m eatin’ lunch off of Stryofoam trays
Tryna be the next rapper comin’ out the A (A-Town)
Hoping for a record deal to ignore my pain
Now let’s pretend like I’m on the stage
And when my beat drops, everybody goes insane
(Okay) And everybody know my name (B.o.B)
And everywhere I go, people wanna hear me sing
Oh, yeah, I just dropped my new album
On my first week, I did 500,000 (Yes)
Gold in the spring, and diamond in the fall
And then a world tour just to top it all off
And let’s pretend that they call me the greatest
Sellin’ out arenas with big-ass stages
And everybody loved me, and nobody hated
Just tryna use imagination

Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars? (Shooting stars)
I could really use a wish right now (Wish right now)
Wish right now (Wish right now)
Wish right now (Wish right now)

Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars? (Shooting stars)
I could really use a wish right now (Wish right now)
Wish right now (Wish right now)
Wish right now (Wish right now)

(Okay) Let’s pretend like this never happened
Like I never had dreams of being a rapper
Like I didn’t write raps up in all of my classes
Like I never used to run away into the blackness
Now, let’s pretend like it was all good (Good)
Like I didn’t live starin’ in the notebook (Notebook)
Like I did the things that I prolly knew I should (Should)
But I ain’t have neighbors, that’s why they call it hood
(Yeah) Now let’s pretend like I ain’t got a name
Before they ever called me B.o.B or AKA Bobby Ray
I’m talkin’ back before the mixtapes
Before the videos and the deals and the fame
Before they ever once compared me to Andre (Three Stacks)
Before I ever got on MySpace
Before they ever noticed my face
So let’s just pretend
And make wishes out of airplanes

Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars? (Shooting stars)
I could really use a wish right now (Wish right now)
Wish right now (Wish right now)
Wish right now (Wish right now)

Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars? (Shooting stars)
I could really use a wish right now (Wish right now)
Wish right now (Wish right now)
Wish right now (Wish right now)

And it seems like yesterday
It was just a dream
But those days are gone
They’re just memories

And it seems like yesterday
It was just a dream
But those days are gone

(Eminem)

Let’s pretend Marshall Mathers never picked up a pen
Let’s pretend things would’ve been no different
Pretend he procrastinated, had no motivation
Pretend he just made excuses that were so paper-thin
They could blow ‘way with the wind
Marshall, you’re never gonna make it
Makes no sense to play the game, ain’t no way that you’ll win
Pretend he just stayed outside all day and played with his friends
Pretend he even had a friend to say was his friend
And it wasn’t time to move and schools weren’t changin’ again
He wasn’t socially awkward and just strange as a kid
He had a father and his mother wasn’t crazy as shit
And he never dreamed he could rip stadiums, and just lazy as shit
Fuck a talent show in a gymnasium, bitch
You won’t amount to shit, quit daydreamin’, kid
You need to get your cranium checked
You’re thinkin’ like an alien, it just ain’t realistic
Now pretend they ain’t just make him angry with this shit
And there was no one he could even aim when he’s pissed at
And his alarm went off to wake him
But he didn’t make it to the Rap Olympics
Slept through his plane and he missed it
He’s gon’ have a hard time explaining to Hailie and Laney
These food stamps and this WIC shit
‘Cause he never risked shit, he hoped and he wished it
But it didn’t fall in his lap, so he ain’t even here
He pretends that

Airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now
Wish right now

Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now
Wish right now

    i think this video is well cool, it inspires me. it is the one out of all of my top 100 artist songs this should go to number one spot!Eminem,Hayley williams and Bob you TOTALLY ROCK!

  6. Jack Mixpix- all right June 15, 2010 at 9:10 AM #

    i think this song could go to number one as it is at no.25 it should go about 24 places now that would reach no.1 come on u gotta rock and beat every single person who sings and dances on their video shoots. this song is a spectacular, hamazing and extraordinary single.
    i like eminem because he’s my no.1 idol in other words he is the one who i would like to be and see and justin bieber i would like to be like justin bieber aswell.
    i produce my own singles like make up ones including dancing around, flying out and more
    thanks for listening for what i said about that spectacular song.

      I have no idea what you’re talking about. But I would encourage you to go and do whatever it is rather than leaving comments about it!

  14. onkar February 24, 2011 at 12:01 PM #

    I haven’t heard of you ever , elios606 , but have heard a bout eminem . Wats up with dat?

  15. Justin April 15, 2011 at 5:13 PM #

    “Now pretend *that* they ain’t just make him angry with this shit”

    I think he doesn’t say “that” here.

    • Andy Hutchins April 15, 2011 at 11:38 PM #

      Thanks. You’re right. You’re like a full year late, but you are right.

      • konspirasjoner April 20, 2011 at 12:18 PM #

        Never too late, as I just recently searched for the lyrics🙂 Thanks for putting it up. One more “that” too much, tho:

        “never dreamed *that* he could rip stadiums”

        Then I think it’s 100%…

      • Andy Hutchins April 21, 2011 at 11:22 AM #

        You rule, but I listened back, and there’s no that there. Thanks.

The last statement b.o.b made in the first verse i heard him sayin”AND EVERYBODY LOVE ME AND NO ONE EVER HATED”not”NOBODY HATED” check the lyrics again. . . . . Really lov u guys airplanes are really like shooting stars cuz av already made my wish. Lov d song n am craxy listenin to it anytime tryin to memorize it. Nice drop b.o.b,cool chorus hayley,hot drop marshall.
