The song was written for UPRIGHT Season 2. More on that coming soon.

Here’s the video. He’s wearing a beanie and there are some familiar faces for those of you who caught the BACK tour.

Lyrics below.

Lyrics:
If I had the blueprint or the brain
I would build an aeroplane
I’d fashion wings of balsa wood and glue
And I would fly to you

I’d carve a prop from old recycled would haves
All these relentless could have
These pointless might have beens
Oh the storms that I would gladly battle through
So I could fly to you

Had I the method or the means
I would build a time machine
I’d make it from the scraps you aways find
When someone leaves their broken dreams behind

And I’d fuel it with the beats that my heart misses
When you sign your name with kisses
Made of x’s when you text me
It’s so silly but
Any fuel and any fire will do
I will fly to you

And I’d carve a prop from old recycled would haves
All these relentless could haves
These pointless might have beens
Oh the storms that I would gladly battle through
So I could fly to you
Oh the storms that I would gladly battle through
So I could fly to you

Thank you so much Tim Minchin you have a beautiful gift and I’m so grateful you have shared it with everyone.
The whole upright series was an amazing adventure and the end just warned my heart especially with your beautiful words in the aeroplane song.

We just finished watching the 2nd season of Upright brilliant and cried my eyes out but it was nothing like this new song just amazing thank you xx

Another beautiful ballad by a master musician & brilliant poet. I love Tim’s love songs that convey the more angsty emotions and I believe Apart Together is the ultimate expression of true lasting love. Very proud of the creative talent that originates from my home town. Love your work, Tim.

Sheesh, last series of Upright at least waited until the last episode before making me ball like a baby. This year’s series is going hard early

Wow. That was such a beautiful song, enough to bring up a tear. Tim, you’re a genius and I hope you know it.
