BOB - Airplanes
(feat. Hayley Williams of Paramore)

[Chorus: Hayley Williams]
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky are like shooting stars?
(
SIMILE, IMAGERY
)
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? (
SIMILE
)
I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now
Wish right now
[Verse 1: B.o.B]
Yeah, I could use a dream or a genie or a wish
To go back to a place much simpler than this
'Cause after all the partyin' and smashin' and crashin' (
COLLOQUIALISMS, CONSONANCE
)
And all the glitz and the glam and the fashion
And all the pandemonium and all the madness (
HYPERBOLE
)
There comes a time where you fade to the blackness (
METAPHOR
)
[Verse 1: B.o.B]
And when you starin' at that phone in your lap
And you're hopin' but them people never call you back (
ALLITERATION
)
But that's just how the story unfolds (
IDIOM
)
You get another hand soon after you fold (
METAPHOR
)
And when your plans unravel (
PERSONIFICATION
) in the sand
What would you wish for (
COLLOQUIALISMS
)
GOAL!
The song depicts on how the early times used to be simpler and much easier. However, as time goes on, life throws obstacles at you and they get harder as you go on. The song portrays how you should always move on and have persistence despite the difficulties you have to overcome.
Thank you!
[Verse 2: B.o.B]
Somebody take me back to the days
Before this was a job, before I got paid
Before it ever mattered what I had in my bank
Yeah, back when I was tryin' to get a tip at Subway (
COLLOQUIALISM
)
And back when I was rappin' for the h*** of it (
COLLOQUIALISM
)
But nowadays we rappin' to stay relevant
[Verse 2: B.o.B]
I'm guessin' that if we can make some wishes outta' airplanes (
METAPHOR
,
COLLOQUIALISM
)
Then maybe yo maybe I'll go back to the days (
UNDERSTATEMENT
)
Before the politics that we call the rap game(
METAPHOR
)And back when ain't nobody listen to my mixtape (
COLLOQUIALISM
)
And back before I tried to cover up my slang (
PERSONIFICATION
)
[Verse 2: B.o.B]
But this is for the hater, what's up Bobby Ray?
So can I get a wish
To end the politics
And get back to the music
That started this sh**?
So here I stand and then again I say
I'm hopin' we can make some wishes outta' airplanes (
COLLOQUIALISM
)
