"balloon maker" as written by Tim Smith, Paul Alexander, Eric Nichelson, Mckenzie Smith and Eric Pulido....
He was a great balloon maker
The balloons were never known for speed
There's no way you'll get sweet
You asked me to waste some time
Come out to see the sun
You're all we've got
But I said I think there's more of them like us
And he said you might be right
We'll find them in time somewhere
I had a dream

He was a great balloon maker
Then they outlawed all balloons
He packed up and put his things away
He asked me to waste some time
Come out to see the sun
You're all we've got
But I said I think there's more of them like us
And he said you might be right
We'll find them in time somewhere
And I had a dream

Come out to see the sun
You're all we've got
But I said I think there's more of them like us
And he said you might be right
We'll find them in time somewhere

    General CommentWell, let me say that I am honored to be the first person to make a comment on this song, but saddened to say that the reason there are no comments is because few people have heard of this band, which happens to be my favorite band of all time. To me the album "Bamnan and Silvercork", has to be somewhat of a concept album. This song "Balloon Maker" is about a one man's attempt to regained his achievement. Through the eyes of the young he tried to regain what he thought might be the answer. The world can look much different from one eye to the next. I think what this story conveys is this: Even through the changing of times, our lives are based on the same roots of a humans basic needs and desires. No matter when you were born or where you live or grow up. And in the end the old man knew that his young friend would succeed in the same way he did in the past. Sometimes the hardships through life mask the visions of our future. I think we try to remember the good parts of our life and try to recapture those moments day to day. If not... We'll find them in time somewhere. And I had agreed...Yeah.
