Babap bararap barap (I)
Babap bararap barap
Babap bararap barap (I)
Babap bararap barap

I don't tell anyone about the way you hold my hand
I don't tell anyone about the things that we have planned
I won't tell anybody, won't tell anybody
They wanna push me down, they wanna see you fall down

Won't tell anybody that you turn the world around
I won't tell anybody that your voice is my favorite sound
I won't tell anybody, won't tell anybody
They wanna see us fall, they wanna see us fall down

I don't need a parachute, baby if I've got you
Baby if I've got you, I don't need a parachute
You're gonna catch me,
You're gonna catch if I fall (Down, down, down)

Don't believe the things you tell yourself so late at night
And, you are your own worst enemy, you'll never win the fight
Just hold onto me, I'll hold onto you
It's you and me up against the world, it's you and me

I don't believe anything, don't trust anyone but me
But I believe you when you say we're never gonna fall
Hand behind my neck, arm around my waist
Never let me hit the ground, you'll never let me crash

I don't need a parachute, baby if I've got you
Baby if I've got you, I don't need a parachute
You're gonna catch me,
You're gonna catch if I fall (Down, down, down)

I don't need a parachute, baby if I've got you
Baby if I've got you, I don't need a parachute
You're gonna catch me,
You're gonna catch if I fall (Down, down, down)

I won't fall out of love, I won't fall out of
I won't fall out of love, I won't fall out of
I won't fall out of love, I won't fall out of
I won't fall out of love, I fall into you

I won't fall out of love, I won't fall out of
I won't fall out of love, I won't fall out of
I won't fall out of love, I won't fall out of
I won't fall out of love, I fall into you

I don't need a parachute, baby if I've got you
Baby if I've got you, I don't need a parachute
You're gonna catch me,
You're gonna catch if I fall (Down, down, down)

I don't need a parachute, baby if I've got you
Baby if I've got you, I don't need a parachute
You're gonna catch me,
You're gonna catch if I fall (Down, down, down)

I don't need a parachute, baby if I've got you
Baby if I've got you, I don't need a parachute
You're gonna catch me,
You're gonna catch if I fall

    General Commenti think it's about her relationship with a girl, that is experiencing this feelings for the first time.
    that girl doesn't want to know anyone about it 'cause she's shocked herself, from her feelings about.. well i guess about ingrid ;)


    'Don't believe the things you tell yourself so late at night
    You are your own worst enemy, you'll never win the fight'

    most people who've never considered themselves as gay and suddenly they are having feelings for someone who's the same sex, are a bit shocked and like 'what the hell is this ok? i'm not like this wtf!?' but you can't push that away, it's just you ;) so you'll never win the fight

    'Just hold on to me, I'll hold onto you'

    to me obviously she means: i love you and you love me so please just hold me and feel okay with it

    'i won't fall out of love' [like a thousand times]

    maybe the other girl is scared they'll fall out of love, and that ingrid tells anybody that she's gay or something, so ingrid's making clear she won't fall out of love and that she will stay on her side :-)



    i don't know why it's my interpretation, it just is. :P

    My OpinionWhat a cute song. =) Not much to interpret, though, since it's pretty straight-forward.
