Got a red balloon
It's got me dreaming, dreaming, dreaming of you
I let it go
Like you, baby, you
Slipped through my hand
Like my brain I know
Has always been slow
So
I got to learn to fly
Or I'll be drowning, drowning, drowning in this every day cry
They say the best swimmers can drown
That I know
Because I made a mess of my life
I know I made a mess of my life

Like a bird on a wire
I feel like a bird on a wire
Then why do I fall before I learn to fly?
Guess I'll learn to crawl

Can a snake have wings?
Can a girl who lost her courage teach a lion to sing?
A beginning pilot got a beginning plane
I can't compete with your heavy metal dream
These dark ages got some fancy machines

Like Catfish, said Catfish and Eddie
"Going to show you how, girl, to walk on water
We'll take it slow, we ain't going to rush you
We'll start out small with the Mississippi"
They say I can't look back
They say I can't look back
Why did I look below?
Oh god, I'm sinking fast
I got to learn to fly
Or I'll be drowning, drowning, drowning in this every day cry
They say the best swimmers can drown
With every stroke I lie to myself
With every stroke I lied to myself
