I thought that part of me was what she'd want
But she got the whole thing
And there's no doubting anything she does
She gets inside me

To think it'd be this clear
Above the atmosphere
I'm flying with no fear now

I was always floating around
Head in the clouds
Thinking I could make it on my own (sometimes I can't make it on my own)
Falling down as my back hit the ground
It felt like a heartbeat; time to get out
Well if you take it, tried and can't fake it
But sometimes I can't make it alone
Sometimes I can't make it alone

She's staring into me with all she's got
Oh what a bright thing!
She fills the space between with air to breathe
She's got inside me

To think it'd be this clear
Above the atmosphere
I'm flying with no fear now

I was always floating around
Head in the clouds
Thinking I could make it on my own (sometimes I can't make it on my own)
Falling down as my back hit the ground
It felt like a heartbeat; time to get out
Well if you take it, tried and can't fake it
But sometimes I can't make it alone
Sometimes I can't make it alone

I think I've always been afraid to fly
Without a reason why
Tonight, you and I go faster and faster
Higher, higher

I was always floating around
Head in the clouds
Thinking I could make it on my own (sometimes I can't make it on my own)
Falling down as my back hit the ground
It felt like a heartbeat; time to get out
Well if you take it, tried and can't fake it
[repeat]

I was always floating around
Head in the clouds
Thinking I could make it on my own (sometimes I can't make it on my own)
Falling down as my back hit the ground
It felt like a heartbeat; time to get out
Well if you take it, tried and can't fake it
But sometimes I can't make it alone
Sometimes I can't make it alone

    General CommentSame here. This song is really good. Not their best, but it's still really catchy and good and I like the lyrics.

    General Commentooh, does the title remind anyone of the U2 song "Sometimes I Can't Make it On My Own"?

    General CommentThis is the only good song on the new cd. The new cd is horrible if you ask me. I am really disappointed in the new cd. :(

    General CommentI think that you need to listen to the cd more. I did not love it the first few times, but it will grow on you just like it did me. It is not "The Everglow", but not much can be. It is a major label CD. We all knew it wouldn't be great, but it is very, very good.

    On this song, it annoyed the piss out of me the first few times I listened to it, but now I LOVE it. Songs 2-4 might be able to run with any three song stretch on Everglow. They are amazingly catchy and good.

    This song sounds nice but I'm not into it enough to even start to think of what it means :/
