Drowning just as fast as I can
But don't throw me a line
Don't reach out your hand
Cause I'm on the brink of something beautiful
And I want to sing about it
But I don't know where to begin
Write a letter
But the words don't come out right
Try and explain how nobody can do me like
You don't understand how helpless I can get
Since the day that we met
Oh can you feel it yet?

It's never been more perfect being alive
I've never been so satisfied

I can feel something different from the first time
Heaven makes sense
And all the words ryhme
No chance in stoping now
I'm taking it all
And now I'm caught in the air
It's a good life
Pass it up, put it down
Oh what a wild ride
I remember being ready
And waiting to fall
Just like I did tonight

Spinning around and around
Until my left was my right
And up became down
With just one look
You knocked me off my feet
So unable to speek
Oh how you made me weak
Though it was a while ago
I still can recall
That moment, so ready
And waiting to fall
Can you take me back in time
Remembering when
You captured my heart
Over and over again

It's never been more perfect being alive
I've never been so satisfied

I can feel something different from the first time
Heaven makes sense
And all the words ryhme
No chance in stoping now
I'm taking it all
And now I'm caught in the air
It's a good life
Pass it up, put it down
Oh what a wild ride
I remember being ready
And waiting to fall
Just like I did tonight

(Waiting to fall)

I can feel something different from the first time
Heaven makes sense
And all the words ryhme
No chance in stoping now
I'm taking it all
And now I'm caught in the air
It's a good life
Pass it up, put it down
Oh what a wild ride
I remember being ready
And waiting to fall
Just like I did tonight

    General CommentI agree with the "Pass it up, wouldn't dare" and the "It's a good glide" corrections.


    I love this song. I liked it before, but then my life changed, and I'm at the point where I am ready and waiting to fall. Life is perfect. I wouldn't pass this up. Things make sense. I met a guy who makes me feel different for the first time.

    So... I pretty much love this song. My current theme song. Oh, how Dave rocks in my book. I loves me some Mae now.

    General Commenti think that the song is pretty simple, everything is going right in his life at the time, whether it be love, being spiritually well, or just a sunny day

    General Commentthis song is absolutely perfect, the ideal description about how i feel about the person i love. every time i listen to it, i feel so happy...it's so true.

    "it's never been more perfect being alive.
    i've never been so satisfied."

    General CommentOk I've got a correction, and for those who keep putting up the wrong lyrics shame on you.

    Jaycar2a wrote:

    THE CORRECT LINE IS:
    "And now I'm caught in the air
    It's a good glide"

    When you substitute glide for life (like Mae sings it)it makes the flying imagery so much stronger and complete.

    This song is great btw, especially if you have a special someone. It says everything that you're feeling. At first I thought the word "fall" meant something else, but its just good ole fashion falling in love. Great song Mae.
