The Balloon and the Wind

The Balloon and the Wind

We used to reach for the sky
Bound by ribbons of blue and red
Now we’ve lost all our lift
And begun to sink instead

She says I am a dreamer
And she keeps both feet on the ground
She’s grown afraid of heights
While I’m afraid to come down

Chorus:
Is this is the beginning
Of another bad end
As I hover above her
I feel like a balloon
And she feels like the wind

I hear her cross the kitchen
And blow so softly down the hall
She thinks if she’s quiet
It’s like she’s not here at all

I still plot her every move
Like the weatherman on TV
I can feel her presence
But she is so hard to see

Chorus:
Is this is the beginning
Of another bad end
As I hover above her
I feel like a balloon
And she feels like the wind

I’m just a dot in the sky
As I drift slowly off to space
Released by her soft hands
Feeling lost and out of place

Chorus:
Is this is the beginning
Of another bad end
As I hover above her
I feel like a balloon
And she feels like the wind
