Love is like an aeroplane
You jump and then you pray
The lucky ones remain
In the clouds for days
If life is just a stage
Let's put on the best show
And let everyone know

'Cause if I have to die tonight
I'd rather be with you
Cut the parachute before the dive
Baby don't you cry
You have to bring me down
We had some fun before we hit the ground

Love is like a hurricane
You know it's on the way
You think you can be brave
Underneath the waves
If life is just a dream
Which of us is dreaming
And who will wake up screaming

'Cause if I have to die tonight
I'd rather be with you
Cut the parachute before the dive
Baby don't you cry
You have to bring me down
We had some fun before we hit the ground

'Cause if I have to die tonight
I'd rather be with you
Cut the parachute before the dive
Baby don't you cry
You have to bring me down
We had some fun before we hit the ground

'Cause if I have to die tonight
I'd rather be with you
Cut the parachute before the dive
Baby don't you cry
You have to bring me down
We had some fun before we hit the ground

    General Commentit's basically about the RISK YOU TAKE when you fall in love*
    a metaphore of jumping into taking a risk when you allow yourself to fall in love.... just enjoy the journey while it lasts :) nothing is permanent and it may end one day...but it's the journey that makes life worth living.

    General CommentThe last time the chorus repeats, aren't the lyrics actually
    "'Cause if I have to die tonight
    I'd rather it was you" ?
    I think this song is about being with someone, but liking someone else, and having a love/hate relationship with that person. "I'd rather be with you" implies being with a certain person in place of another, and "I'd rather it was you" implies that he wants that person to die (hence the love/hate relationship). And, of course, it's all about the risk.

    General Commenti agree that it's about the risk you take when you fall in love. and it's about a guy who well in love with a girl and the relationship ended but he still cares so much about her.

    "'Cause if I have to die tonight
    I'd rather be with you
    Cut the parachute before the dive
    Baby don't you cry
    You have to bring me down
    We had some fun before we hit the ground"

    describes how he feels about her. even thought it's over he'd still be there for her. even though it ended he can still say "well, at least we had some fun before it's done"
