Can I get your hand to write on
Just a piece of lead to bite on
What am I to fly my kite on
Do you want to flash your light on
Take a look its on display - for you
Coming down no not today

Did you meet your fortune teller
Get it off with no propellor
Do it up its always stellar
What a way to finally smell her
Pick it up its not to strong - for you
Take a piece and pass it on

Fly away on my zephyr
I feel it more then ever
And in this perfect weather
Well find a place together
Fly on my wing

Rebellin, a liberator
Find a way to be a skater
Rev it up to levitator
Super friendly aviator
Take a look its on display - for you
Coming down no not today

Fly away on my zephyr
I feel it more then ever
And in this perfect weather
Well find a place together
In the water where the scent of my emotion
All the world will pass me by
Fly away on my zephyr
Well find a place together

Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa - do you
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa - wont you
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Fly away on my zephyr
I feel it more then ever
And in this perfect weather
Well find a place together

In the water where the scent of my emotion
All the world will pass me by
Fly away on my zephyr
Were gonna live forever
Forever

    General CommentI hope i'm not yelled at for saying this but i think this song is the highest point on the new disk, i mean the new disk is absolutely christ (i'm almost certain it takes home album of the year), every song is worth listening too, but this song just transcends above all others. The melody is beautiful, and the lyrics are equally as beautiful. The meaning isn't necessarily important, not fully knowing what it means makes the song that much better. Truely a great song by a truely great band.

    General Commenta zephyr is acctually a gentle wind not to show you up but i think it makes a little more sense. the song is still great ... after watching a bio on the red hot chili peppers i have a whole new respect for them.

    I think that atleast is about needing something to hold on to, to help you through something. Leaving a light on is supposed to let you get home. a String is why you fly a kite with (hold onto it with), Lead is a soft metal, so isnt good to bite on (people bite on things when going through pain, etc...). The hand to write on, using someone elses hand to write on would be writing your number...

    I think the chorus is just about letting go... Just finding a place to be happy, to get away from your problems and the world.

    General Commenti think its about a guy saying hey if your up for it i will take u away and we can have a great life together. he is giving a girl the choice because he loves her and he wants whats best for her, so he says "take a look its on display-for you" like as ive said, if she wants he they can go off and live happily ever after.

    General CommentI agree totally with it being a love song. These lyrics aren't nearly as hard to figure out as a lot of other Chili Peppers songs. This is probably my favorite Chili Peppers song to date. It's such an excellent song!
