  • Whoa oh oh oh

    I had a dream last night
    I didn't know which floor to get off on, hey
    The doors, they opened on 4 and 5 and 6
    And you were gone, all gone

    I didn't understand
    I didn't wanna know
    At least I took a chance
    I had to let it go

    Elevator goes up
    Elevator come down
    And you just go with the flow
    Until your feet are back on the ground

    It's an endless ride
    Sometimes it takes you up
    Sometimes it tears you down inside
    But it's the butterflies
    That keep you feeling so alive, so alive
    You gotta get back that high

    And in my dream last night
    The doors they finally shut and I was there, somewhere
    Alone in my reality inside an empty box
    That's filled with air
    But I don't care, no

    Next time I'll get it right
    Next time I'll be okay
    I'll have a different dream tonight
    Tomorrow's another day

    Elevator goes up (elevator goes up)
    Elevator come down
    And you just go with the flow
    Until your feet are back on the ground
    It's an endless ride
    Sometimes it takes you up
    Sometimes it tears you down inside
    But it's the butterflies
    That keep you feeling so alive, so alive
    You gotta get back that high

    You'll never know
    What you're gonna get
    What you don't expect will come and find you
    If you laugh or cry
    If you run and hide
    But it's all right

    Elevator goes up
    Elevator come down
    And you just go with the flow
    Until your feet are back on the ground
    It's an endless ride
    Sometimes it takes you up
    Sometimes it tears you down inside
    But it's the butterflies
    That keep you feeling so alive, so alive
    You gotta get back that high Writer/s: SHELLY PEIKEN, DAVID ARCHULETA, MIKE KROMPASS
