Zebras And Airplanes - Alicia Keys

www.last.fmby Simon Cleary 


The Experience: Have you ever wondered why in my dreams, the sky's so blue? Let's fly away and make your dreams do come true.

Video: Still waiting.


The Meaning of Alicia Keys' Zebras And Airplanes is a backwards alphabet - not from A to Z, it's from Zebras to Airplanes. Alicia goes through what makes dreams real: sky is so blue, in the jungle I'm feelin' so free, through the wind where the water meets the sand... Alicia wants us to turn back the alphabet, turn back time. Take the time to remember your dreams. To remember what you really wanted when you had ideals. Make a wish, let your fantasy begin. (Even if that means beginning again.)

Ask Yourself: Do I live my dreams? Or have I given up on making dreams come true?


LYRICS:
Have you ever wanna run away?
Have you ever closed your eyes, 
Seen a vision and it took you away
Wonder why in my dreams 
Lookin' up the sky is so blue
In the jungle I’m feelin so free 
Where dreams do come true

So come on, let’s fly away
Like zebras and airplanes
Runnin so free through the night
Fire through the sky away
Like zebras and airplanes

Have you ever wanna gallop 
Through the wind 
Where water meets the sand?
If you ever wanna feel like this 
Then come take my hand
Through the paint on the canvass 
And it cover up your emotion
Now’s the time, take a chance, 
Make a wish, let your fantasy begin

So come on, let’s fly away
Like zebras and airplanes
Runnin so free through the night
Fire through the sky away
Like zebras and airplanes

What do zebras and airplanes mean?
They say zebras running free through the night
Airplanes fly high through the sky
And that can be you and I

So come on, let’s fly away
Like zebras and airplanes
Runnin so free through the night
Fire through the sky away
Like zebras and airplanes
