  • Hit the ground, hit the ground, hit the ground, oh oh
    Only sound, only sound that you hear is "no"
    You never saw it coming
    Slipped when you started running
    And now you've come undone and I, I, I, I

    Seen you fall, seen you crawl on your knees, eh eh
    Seen you lost in a crowd, seen your colors fade
    Wish I could make it better
    Someday you won't remember
    This pain you thought would last forever and ever

    And there you'll stand, ten feet tall
    I will say, I knew it all along
    Your eyes' wider than distance
    This life's sweeter than fiction

    Just a shot, just a shot in the dark, oh oh
    All you got, all you got are your shattered hopes
    They never saw it coming
    You hit the ground running
    And now you're onto something, I, I, I say

    What a sight, what a sight when the light came on
    Proved me right, proved me right when you proved them wrong
    And in this perfect weather
    It's like we don't remember
    The rain we thought would last forever and ever

    And there you'll stand, ten feet tall
    I will say, I knew it all along
    Your eyes' wider than distance
    This life's sweeter than fiction

    There you'll stand, next to me
    All at once, the rest is history
    Your eyes' wider than distance
    This life's sweeter than fiction, fiction

    I'll be one of the many saying,
    Look at you now, look at you now, now
    I'll be one of the many saying,
    You made us proud, you made us proud, proud
    I'll be one of the many saying,
    Look at you now, look at you now, now
    I'll be one of the many saying,
    You made us proud, you made us proud, proud

    And when they call your name
    And they put your picture in a frame
    You know that I'll be there time and again
    'Cause I loved you when, when you

    Hit the ground, hit the ground, hit the ground, oh oh
    Only sound, only sound that you heard was "no"
    Now in this perfect weather
    It's like we don't remember
    The rain we thought would last forever and ever (forever)

    There you'll stand, ten feet tall
    I will say, I knew it all along
    Your eyes' wider than distance
    This life's sweeter than fiction

    There you'll stand next to me
    All at once, the rest is history
    Your eyes' wider than distance
    This life's sweeter than fiction, fiction

    It's sweeter than fiction
    It's sweeter, yeah
    It's sweeter than, sweeter
