LyricsEdit

Breathe and I'll carry you away,
Into the velvet sky and we'll stir the stars around.
And watch them fall away into the Hudson Bay,
And plummet out of sight and sound.
The open summer breeze will sweep you through the hills,
Where I live in the Alpine Heights.
Below the Northern lights,
I spend my coldest nights, alone, awake and thinking of,
The weekend we were in love.

(The weekend we were in love.)

Home among these mountaintops can be so awfully dull,
A thousand miles from the tide.
But photos on the walls, of New York shopping malls,
Distract me so I stay inside.
I wish the rockets stayed over the promenade,
'Cause I would make a hook and I, fish them from the sky.
My darling she and I, were hanging on so take us high,
To sing the world goodbye.

I am floating away,
Lost in a silent ballet.
I'm dreaming you're out in the blue and I am right beside you,
Awake to take in the view.
Late nights and early parades,
Still photos and noisy arcades.
My darling, we're both on the wing, look down and keep on singing,
And we can go anywhere.

(Are you there?)
Or are you just a decoy dream, in my head?
Am I home or am I simply tumbling all alone?

I am floating away (floating away),
Lost in a silent ballet (silent ballet).
I'm dreaming you're out in the blue and I am right beside you, (right beside you)
Awake to take in the view.
Late nights and early parades, (early parades)
Still photos and noisy arcades. (noisy arcades)
My darling, we're both on the wing, look down and keep on singing, (look down and keep on singing)
And we can go anywhere. (And we can go anywhere)

(Are you there?)
