I'm not gonna give it up until I'm holding you tight
You don't know it, but I know it's gonna be tonight
You know, you shine so bright
And oh, oh, oh
I can't sleep tonight

Pack your things
We'll skip this town
I'll pick you up when the sun goes down

I want to float away with you
Up, up, and away we'll go
I'll come in through your window

Darling, how does that sound?
Just gotta tell me, gotta, gotta tell me
Let me know what you think
Oh, please, just close your eyes
We'll be there before you blink

Pack your things
We'll skip this town
I'll pick you up when the sun goes down

I want to float away with you
Up, up, and away we'll go
I'll come in through your window

I want to float away with you
Up, up, and away we'll go
I'll take you to the stars tonight
And then I'll take you home

Promise me, girl, that you won't look down
I swear it's nothing that you'd want to see

Promise me you won't look down
It's nothing you'd want to see
This romance on a rocketship
Is more than enough, more than enough for me

I want to float away with you
Up, up and away we'll go
I'll come in through your window
I want to float away with you
Up, up, and away we'll go
I'll take you to the stars tonight
And then I'll take you home

    ... such an awesome verse. almost any other artist singing those lines would make it cheesy. he just makes it sound awesome.
