What happened to the make believe?
It's escaped.
I felt it rise above me and, fly away.
What happened to the world around?
It's changed.
Well I didn't see it leave but it's, gone away.

I'm forty-seven feet above the ground,
And I'm fallin'.
So could you be the one to slow me down?
When I'm callin'.
I'm forty-seven feet above the ground,
And I'm fallin'.
Forty-seven feet above the ground.

What happened to all my mistakes?
They're the same.
I tried to throw 'em all away,
Into space.
What happened to all the choices, we made?
'Cause it could be just one thing that changes, everything.

I'm forty-seven feet above the ground,
And I'm fallin'.
So could you be the one to slow me down?
When I'm callin'.
I'm forty-seven feet above the ground,
And I'm fallin'.
Forty-seven feet above the ground.

'Cause every time it feels just like the same thing, again
And even if I try to fight it I feel like, yeah, yeah.

I'm forty-seven feet above the ground,
And I'm fallin'.
So could you be the one to slow me down?
When I'm callin'.
I'm forty-seven feet above the ground,
And I'm fallin'.
I'm forty-seven feet above the ground, yeah, yeah.
I'm forty-seven feet above the ground,
And I'm fallin'.
Could you be the one to slow me down? yeah, yeah
I'm forty-seven feet above the ground,
And I'm fallin'.
So could you be the one to slow me down? Oh yeah.

I'm fallin'.

    General CommentThe clear, crisp guitar in this song is a great start to Reverie, and always reminds me of a cool, bright Autumn day, walking through the golden orange trees.
