Just when I thought I hadn’t seen a thing, you went and promised me we’d float
Promenade through all the little corners of the world that no one knows
Climb Mount Everest, build ourselves a terrace, overlooking Isle of White
But suddenly the skies are darkening, the clouds are rolling in
I’m realizing all the while

I’ve been strung along and carried by a lead balloon
Oh, but how could I have ever left the ground
When the reason I’ve been struggling pulling my weight is you
You’re my love, you’re my lead balloon

Just when I thought I’m figuring it out, I’ve sorted through the doubt you caused
I start dreaming of rooms without a ceiling, buildings towering applause
If only we could drift as though we were filled with helium, light as feathers
We would never come undone, 'cause darling, we’d be tethered

I’ve been strung along and carried by a lead balloon
Oh, but how could I have ever left the ground
When the reason I’ve been struggling pulling my weight is you
You’re my love, you’re my lead balloon
