Oh God I never mind the hardest part
In my mind I see another world an easy start
I drag it with the corners bent
And it’s colder than the weather said

Oo we’ll give another try
Cause you’re beautiful and that red jacket calls to mind
An ember waiting for the wind
To strike up the flame again

Run, and I fly so high
Sitting here waiting for the young to die and I
Run, I fly so high, waiting for the young to die

Like a fool I’m running through the grass
By some miracle it catches and it pulls me back
With such a force I let it go, watch it float away to be alone
A quiet sadness in the letting go, but it’s flying strong as ever with the string below
Held by a solid hand
“I’ve got it” is all you said.

*break* reverse chorus
Chorus x 2
