  • I would search this world for you
    Even though you can't imagine
    I wanna take you to China
    I wanna kiss you in Rome

    I'd use rocket ships, mine sweepers
    Transistor radio receivers
    I wanna hold you, wanna hold you too tight
    Gonna break every bone of everybody in sight

    When I'm flying so high
    (Flying so high)
    Like a bird in the sky
    But you're dragging me down, yeah
    But you're dragging me down, yeah
    But you're dragging me down, down, down, down

    I hear your talking and whispers, pale drawn out nails and fingers
    I'm seeing shapes behind the curtain
    You're looking older but you can't be certain
    You're so tired
    (You're so tired)

    But you just can't sleep
    You're so shallow
    (You're so shallow)
    But you're in too deep

    Your hands shaking
    Body's lifting, body's mine
    I know, I know
    'Cause I told you so

    When I'm flying so high
    (Flying so high)
    Like a bird in the sky
    But you're dragging me down, yeah
    But you're dragging me down, yeah
    But you're dragging me down, down, down, down

    Oh, you're dragging me down, oh you're dragging me down
    Drag, drag, dragging me down, oh you're dragging me down
    Oh, you're dragging me, dragging me, dragging me, oh
    (You're dragging me down)

    (Oh)
    I never can quite remember
    (Oh)
    Was it June, July or September?
    (Oh)
    That you sold your soul to me, to me
    (Oh)
    That you sold your soul to me, to me

    When I'm flying so high
    (Flying so high)
    Like a storm in the sky
    But you're dragging me down, yeah
    But you're dragging me down, yeah
    But you're dragging me down, yeah

    When I'm flying so high
    (Flying so high)
    Like a bird in the sky
    But you're dragging me down, yeah
    But you're dragging me down, yeah
    But you're dragging me down, down, down, down

    Dragging me down, dragging me down
    Dragging me down, dragging me down
    Dragging me down, dragging me down
    Dragging me down Writer/s: CLINTON DAVID BOON, CRAIG DOUGLAS GILL, GRAHAM PAUL LAMBERT, MARTYN JOHN WALSH, THOMAS WILLIAM HINGLEY
