Parachute

  • Smooth riding
    On a dark purple night
    Breaking out through the sky
    Time's flying
    Gonna put it in drive
    Chasing down the moonrise
    Going uptown baby

    I'm not afraid of falling
    It's the freedom I'm wanting
    Packed a parachute and
    Now it's time to fly

    Goodbye-ing
    Couldn't get any higher
    Even if I were trying
    Bad timing
    Slowing down for awhile
    Heaven knows that I'm wild
    Going uptown baby
    Where the world goes crazy

    I'm not afraid of falling
    It's the freedom I'm wanting
    Packed a parachute
    And now it's time to fly

    I'm not afraid of falling
    It's the freedom I'm wanting
    Packed a parachute
    And now it's time to fly

    Been up I've been down
    Flying over this town
    Doing the best I can
    I've been up, I've been down
    Flying over this town
    And I ain't ready to land

    I'm not afraid of falling
    It's the freedom I'm wanting
    Packed a parachute and
    Now it's time to fly
    I'm not afraid of falling
    It's the freedom I'm wanting
    Packed a parachute and
    Now it's time to fly
