The plane takes off and the ground's so far away
I try to think about the position I am in
And what I'm supposed to say
The ground below won't keep me grounded
You're sick and tired
That's the way it sounded
As I take off and fly away

Cause this is what you want but you just can't say
So let's keep on moving anyway

Cause it's a dream, dream, dream, dream
Trying to wake up
I can hardly breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe
High up on a cloud, dancing with reality

My blood starts rushing and I don't know what to say
Try not to think about the little voice inside my head
And dreams when I know I'm never safe
I lose control, you break commitment
We stop thinking as we start this engine
Standing up for one night, hiding months of pain

Cause this is what you want but you just can't say
So let's keep on moving anyway

Cause it's a dream, dream, dream, dream
Trying to wake up
I can hardly breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe
High up on a cloud, dancing with me
I'm a machine
My regards for him are wearing thin
I'm sorry
Dream, dream, dream, dream
High up on a cloud, dancing with reality

You've got me all strung out
I want this in the worst way
Quiet now, speaking more than words could say
Love is a game that we both play (x2)

This is a dream, dream, dream, dream
Trying to wake up
I can hardly breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe
High up on a cloud, dancing with me
I'm a machine
My regards for him are wearing thin
I'm sorry
Dream, dream, dream, dream
High up on a cloud, dancing with reality

    General Commentomg i love love love this song. i'm absolutely obsessed with it right now. so pretty much, i think its about this guy and girl who have had this fling off and on. they both know what the other is thinking, but neither of them will admit to it. also when it says "i'm a machine. my regards for him are wearing thin" its basically saying that the girl is now seeing this guy and he hates it. he tries to be nice about it, but can't stand to see her with some one else. so every night he dreams about her and them together; he's dancing with reality... amazing song!!!
