Hot Air Balloon
oleh: Owl City



We wrote a preludeTo our own fairy taleAnd bought a parachuteAt a church rummage sale
And with a mean sewing machineAnd miles of threadWe sewed the day above L.A.In navy and red
We wound a race trackThrough your mom's kitchen chairsAnd fought the shadows backDown your dark basement stairs
I lit a match, then let it catchTo light up the roomAnd then you yelled as we beheldAn old maroon hot air balloon
I'll be out of my mindAnd you'll be out of ideasPretty soonSo let's spendThe afternoon in a cold hot air balloonLeave your jacket behindLean up and touch the treetops over townI can't waitTo kiss the groundWherever we touch back down
La la la la la laaaLa la la la la laaa
We drank the Great LakesLike cold lemonadeAnd both got stomach achesSprawled out in the shade
So bored to death you held your breathAnd I tried not to yawnYou made my frown turn upside downAnd now my worries are gone
I'll be out of my mindAnd you'll be out of ideasPretty soonSo let's spendThe afternoon in a cold hot air balloonLeave your jacket behindLean up and touch the treetops over townI can't waitTo kiss the groundWherever we touch back down
I'll be out of my mindAnd you'll be out of ideasPretty soonSo let's spendThe afternoon in a cold hot air balloonLeave your jacket behindLean up and touch the treetops over townI can't waitTo kiss the groundWherever we touch back down
