  • My heart is filled, with love and care
    Not an ounce of gas, I would get up there
    The answer's simple
    You lift me up
    The view up here, I see all the stars
    There go Venus, and there go Mars
    Somethin' you been through
    You're from above, hey

    Hey, when I first saw you, I got excited
    Tried to keep my composure, tryna hide it
    But I didn't know
    I didn't let go
    Then it occurred to me while tryna fight it
    Just like a kite, you learn to ride it
    But I didn't know
    You're s'posed to let it go

    Like a gust of wind
    You hit me off sometimes
    Like a gust of wind
    You push me back every once in a while
    Like a gust of wind
    You remind me there's someone up there
    Who ushers in
    The air I need to power my sail

    When I open the window
    I wanna hug you
    'Cause you remind me of the air
    I said yeah
    'Cause when I'm feelin' real low
    I remember I love you
    I put my hands in the air
    And you were there

    With your love, I can board the skies
    Riding away that electrified mothership other
    Can I stow away? (can I stow away girl, girl?)
    Colourful winds of the northern sky
    Is the closest thing, and here is why
    'Cause we're color
    You blow me away (blow me away girl, girl)

    I need it like I breathe it
    Music and colors can make one hover
    Who cares if they don't see you?
    Don't you know that they're the same?
    I need it like I breathe it
    If you never discover, forever you'll suffer
    Who cares if they don't see you?
    You gotta tap in and learn the way

    Like a gust of wind
    You hit me off sometimes
    Like a gust of wind
    You push me back every once in a while
    Like a gust of wind
    You remind me there's someone up there
    Who ushers in
    The air I need to power my sail

    When I open the window
    I wanna hug you
    'Cause you remind me of the air
    I said yeah
    'Cause when I'm feelin' real low
    I remember I love you
    I put my hands in the air
    And you were there

    When I first saw you, I got excited
    Tried to keep my composure, tryna hide it
    But I didn't know
    I didn't let go
    Then I realized I'm tryna fight it
    Just so they can learn to ride it
    But I didn't know
    I had to let it go

    Like a gust of wind
    You head me off sometimes
    Like a gust of wind
    You push me back every once in a while
    Like a gust of wind
    You remind me there's someone up there
    Who ushers in
    The air I need to power my sail

    When I open the window
    I wanna hug you
    'Cause you remind me of the air
    I said yeah
    'Cause when I'm feelin' real low
    I remember I love you
    I put my hands in the air
    And you were there Writer/s: DAFT PUNK, G.M. HOMEM-CHRISTO, HANS ZIMMER, PHARRELL WILLIAMS, THOMAS BANGALTER
