I wish we flew in paper planes
Across the air and seas
There would be no crashes, only crumples
But we might run out of trees

Across the air and seas
The paper planes would fly
But we might run out of trees
Less people would have died

The paper planes would fly
No smoke would clog the air
Less people would have died
And Elliot would still be here

No smoke would clog the air
No towers would ever fall
And Elliot would still be here
With a smile that would never dull

No towers would ever fall
There would be no crashes, only crumples
With a smile that would never dull
I wish we only flew in paper planes.
