Oh, lately I've been gettin' this funny feelin'
There's something wrong and I don't know what to do
You see my legs look like two lampposts in an earthquake
Whenever I get within a few feet from you

And I'm like a paratrooper with amnesia
Falling like an anchor through the sky
Oh, I feel like I should be gettin' prepared for somethin'
But I could not tell you right now exactly why

It began as a flash in the pan but I can't understand...
Oh honey, why you want to go movin' away so soon
When my head feels like a compass at the north pole
And my ribs are wrapped around a big balloon
Oh yeah!

Oh, it's so hard to get my hands around the ripcord
Yeah, with all this thin air pumpin' into my heart
Pumpin' up into my heart
Pumpin' up into my heart
Pumpin' up into my heart
Pumpin' up into my...

    General CommentOh, lately I've been gettin' this funny feelin'... Oh, there's something wrong and I don't know what to do... You see, my legs look like two lampposts in an earthquake... Whenever I get within a few feet from you.

    And I'm like a paratrooper with amnesia... Falling like an anchor through the sky. Oh, I feel like I should be gettin' prepared for somethin'... But I could not tell you right now exactly why.
