"Somersault" as written by Henry Binns, Sam Hardaker and Sia Kate I. Furler....
You're the prince to my ballerina
You'll feed all the people's parking meters
You encourage the eating of ice cream
And you would somersault in sand with me

You talk to loners
You ask 'how's your week?'
You give love to all
And give love to me
You're obsessed with hiding
The sticks and stones
And feel the unknown
You feel like home
You feel like home

You put my feet back on the ground
Oh, did you know you brought me home
Yeah, you were sweet and you were sound
Can you save me

You're the wars in my summer's breeze
You're the ivories in my ebony key
You would share your last jelly bean
And you would somersault in sand with me

You put my feet back on the ground
Oh, did you know you brought me home
Yeah, you were sweet and you were sound
You save me

You put my feet (back on the ground)
Oh, did you know you brought me (home)
Yeah you were sweet and you were (sound)
See I have tried
You still bring me around 'n around 'n around

'n around 'n around 'n around
Yeah yeah oh oh
You brought me around
Yeah yeah oh oh

    General CommentThis is a great song that captures the cute, carefree feeling of being in love. If someone were to write a song like this about me, I think I'd just melt into a puddle.

    General CommentBeautiful song and lyrics. She's talking about a man who is not just great because she loves him, but someone who is great because he loves life. The thing that makes it extra bittersweet special is the alternating tense. Half the time, she speaks of him in the knowing present tense, but the sense you have from the whole song is that this is someone who she was close to and who saved her, in the past.

    General CommentI know for a fact that this song is written about a healthy exercise routine. End of story...

    General CommentPraising the one you love. The lyrics are so simple yet beautiful and the flow of it all together makes this one hell of a song. If I were to ever experience love, I would like it to be as this song describes.

    General CommentI completely agree with CrayonDrawnCat its just feeling free, and in love. I don't think i've ever felt that way, but i sure have wanted to. This song makes me happy and sad all at once. Happy because its so sweet, and sad because i long for that sweet, and free feeling.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of the person who got me into Zero 7 to begin with - To me the song reminds me of him because in many many ways he's the one person who keeps me totally grounded when i'm around him.
    I think the song in general is about two people fitting so perfectly together that it makes them totally complete, one whole, one person. And the way the eyes see the person as so perfect and so human, and so fun, and so out of reach almost, that they can't quite believe that they're theirs.

    General CommentUh...this is definitely my favorite Zero 7 song, even better than Destiny and In the Waiting Line.

    It's just so carefree and simply beautiful.

    General Commenti love this song, as u can probably tell by my user name. it captures everything i want to feel in a relationship. plus her voice..... it's incredible! i was watching some stupid movie, guess who, and this song came on, and it made the rest of the movie for me. if someone can make you feel this way, then u want to hold on to them for as long as you can.

    my favortie zero 7 song.
