    Ace The Prophet



    His re-mixed version of the song "Airplanes" was a real gem this week. The flow was solid, rhyme scheme in tact. Very well written piece that was very inspirational. great job Ace. Well deserved.






    [chorus]
    Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
    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?
    I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now

    [Verse 1]
    I remember back in the day where all I ever did was dream
    Shootin’ for the stars and viewin’ Heaven in between
    Never needed guidance, I would fly on angel wings
    Higher than a Pegasus, I’m eyein’ stranger things
    See, fantasy’s reality when dreams are comin true
    But strength is all you need when everything becomes unglued
    And any word that’s said is never easier to do
    So everyone that’s weak will always leave it up to you
    And then you have to try to find the leadership inside
    Lookin in the mirror to try to see a different side
    Of everything you felt that was the reason that you fight
    And if it’s what you needed, too much thinkin’ to decide!
    And now you need a breather just to catch up in your life
    From searchin through the dark to find the message in the light
    But nothing’s feelin real, gotta check if you’re alive
    Feelin’ dead inside while the rest of us survive
    It’s feelin too grave and it’s gotten you afraid
    That you could be the next one we’re honoring today
    Thinkin’ what your family honestly would say
    You’d rather get lost and be wandering away
    To a land where nothin’ matters and everyone is gathered
    To try and reach the sky on this never-ending ladder
    So you’re climbin’ up a little more each day
    Til the night comes around and you say…

    [chorus]
    Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
    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?
    I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now

    [Verse 2]
    Now let me tell you ‘bout a time that I wasn’t sure
    If I could escape what all my life had just allured
    See, if everything was pure, I never woulda left it
    But I’m still the Ace, so I guess I’m getting tested
    Filled with the anxiety of acts that were aggressive
    Lookin for a love in any girl that I messed with
    Yes it, was nothing I ever had expected
    Still it had me on top like I was elected
    The alcohol I mixed it with had felt like I was blessed with
    Somethin’ unbelievable, I needed it perfected
    Til a little much would lead to me gettin’ arrested
    Tryin to drive away from lies was leavin’ me neglected
    When maybe all I needed was the meds for the pain
    So it’d alleviate all that rests on my brain
    Until then I’ll wait for the day
    Where I can lay as I look into her face and just say

    [chorus]
    Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
    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?
    I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now

    [Verse 3]
    Yeah…and here I am again
    Lookin at these wishes that I’ve written with my pen
    As I’m thinkin of some more that I’m addin’ to the list
    That’ll keep me in the clear long as tragedy exists
    So if a bullet’s shot God’ll grab me by the wrist
    And pull me to the side like it magically had missed
    To allow me the time just to laugh and reminisce
    But if I take the hit, Goddamnit I’ll be pissed!
    Then how could I tell everything I ever felt?
    How could I explain that I rose and never fell?
    How could I explain that when things feel like they’re worsening
    You rise up to the sky and just fight with the adversity!
    How could I advise you to live up in the clouds
    So you’re fallin’ into Heaven when they knock you to the ground?
    But until the day I’ll wait
    Til you’re lookin in the sky up at me when you say

    [chorus]
    Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
    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?
    I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now​
