I Don't Have to Come Down

My stomach's turning inside out

It's full of butterflies

I'm in the middle of a battlefield

with a blindfold on my eyes

You pushed me off a clifftop

you were supposed to hold my hand

And I can't open my parachute

and I've forgotten how to land


But something's lifting me up

won't let me touch the ground

I've got the wind in my hair

and I can't hear a sound

from the crazy world you've left for me

I'm flying...and I don't have to come down


I've got a map and a compass

but nowhere to go

I think I'll head for the sunshine

'cause I'm barefoot in the snow

And as soon as I start walking

I'll know I'm being led

and I can rise above what's going on

and what hasn't happened yet


'Cause something's lifting me up

won't let me touch the ground

I've got the wind in my hair

and I can't hear a sound

from the crazy world you've left for me

I'm flying...and I don't have to come down
