(Is it a bird or just a plane?
Is it a bird or a plane?
Is it a bird or just a plane?
Is it a bird or a plane?)

What happened to the boy I knew?
He promised me his love was true
Supposed to be a man
But his little plan had fell through

The one who used to tell me jokes
Was popular with all my folks
Had everybody fooled 'cause he was so cool
Now it's up in smoke

What happened to my childhood dream
Your language I no longer speak
How come you never talk to me?
My telephone never rings

I wish I'd known that you would mean
To let me go,
I was oblivious
You were up on a pedestal
And I could not ring you in

But you fell short
'Cause you needed lungs to breath
And you can't fly
Look with eyes like laser beams
And I was blind for wanting you to rescue me
But you were caught in the clouds

And I was left on the ground

(Is it a bird or just a plane?
Is it a bird or a plane?
Is it a bird or just a plane?
Is it a bird or a plane?)

What happened to the boy I knew
The one I thought had hung the moon
Supposed he was a man
But one stroke of his hand
And I'm painted blue

What happened to my childhood dream
Your language I no longer speak
How come you never talk to me?
And my telephone never rings

I wish I'd known that you would mean
To let me go,
I was oblivious
You were up on a pedestal
And I could not ring you in

But you fell short
'Cause you needed lungs to breath
And you can't fly
Look with eyes like laser beams
And I was blind for wanting you to rescue me
But you were caught in the clouds
Oh
You fell short
'Cause you needed lungs to breath
And you can't fly
Look with eyes like laser beams
And I was blind for wanting you to rescue me
But you were caught in the clouds

You can't read the thoughts
That form inside my head
And you aren't strong enough
To save my soul from dead
Then you can't keep my heart
From being ripped to shreds

I was wrong to alter reality
I made you some
Superman you couldn't be
All this time, oh, I truly did believe
That you got caught in the clouds

I wish you'd known that I would mean
To fall in love
Were you oblivious?
You were high in the atmosphere
I disappear below

But you fell short
'Cause you needed lungs to breath
And you can't fly
Look with eyes like laser beams
And I was blind for wanting you to rescue me
But you were caught in the clouds
Oh
You fell short
'Cause you needed lungs to breath
And you can't fly
Look with eyes like laser beams
And I was blind for wanting you to rescue me
But you were caught in the clouds
Oh

You got caught in the clouds, oh

And I don't know myself now, no

Is it a bird or just a plane?
Is it a bird or a plane?
Is it a bird or just a plane?
Is it a bird or a plane?
