lyrics

Counting Planes in the sky.
I don't know if you're coming home again.
Painted eagles flying by.
Will they bring you back to me?

And little Wynn, she's kneeling by the window,
she doesn't know if it's ok to look.
Peeking out beneath the blackout blind,
the only light on is the moon.

Counting Planes in the sky.
I don't know if you're coming home again.
Painted eagles flying by.
Will they bring you back to me?

They hear that sound and they know it's the bad men.
The engine sound is different in the sky.
They hide their faces in the eiderdown,
heartbeats racing fast now they don't know
if it's time to run and hide...
