All that's real to me
Is Marilyn and Jesus
Jumping off of bridges
Sparklers and streamers

Honey, I want to fly
I want to fly, I want to fly

All that's real to me
Is Halloween and Jesus
Coney Island beaches
Chandeliers and seizures

Honey, I want to fly
I want to fly, I want to fly

I can't be with the man I love
I can't be if he treats me rough
I can't see him, I can't call him up

All that's real to me
Is trailer parks and beaches
Alabama freezes
Platinum impeaches

Honey, I want to fly
I want to fly, I want to fly

All that's real to me
Is Halloween and Jesus
Coney Island beaches
Chandeliers and seizures

Honey, I want to fly
I want to fly, I want to fly

I can't be with the man I love
I can't be if he treats me rough
I can't see him, I can't call him up

All that's real to me
Is Marilyn and Jesus
Jumping off of bridges
Sparklers and streamers

I can't be with the man I love
I can't be if he treats me rough
I can't see him, I can't call him up

    General CommentI cannot believe this song is so underrated, It's one of my favorites.
    Ok I'll admit is not that well put together she just sings about things that gotta do with her, I find some things that remind me of "Body Electric" and in this song i guess she just wants to fly but I don't know is she's talking about escaping her "trailer park" life or just reality (drugs). I guess just reality.
