When You Come Back Down

  • You got to leave me now, you got to go alone
    You got to chase a dream, one that's all your own
    Before it slips away
    When you're flyin' high, take my heart along
    I'll be the harmony to every lonely song
    That you learn to play

    When you're soarin' through the air
    I'll be your solid ground
    Take every chance you dare
    I'll still be there
    When you come back down
    When you come back down

    I'll keep lookin' up, waitin' your return
    My greatest fear will be that you will crash and burn
    And I won't feel your fire
    I'll be the other hand that always holds the line
    Connectin' in between your sweet heart and mine
    I'm strung out on that wire

    And I'll be on the other end, to hear you when you call
    Angel, you were born to fly, and if you get too high
    I'll catch you when you fall
    I'll catch you when you fall

    Your memory's the sunshine every new day brings
    I know the sky is calling
    Angel, let me help you with your wings

    When you're soarin' through the air
    I'll be your solid ground
    Take every chance you dare

    I'll still be there
    When you come back down
    Take every chance you dare,
    I'll still be there
    When you come back down
    When you come back down Writer/s: Daniel J. O'Keefe, Timothy Page O'Brien
