Why didn’t you let her love you when she tried?
Like third degree burns, she’d never been so fried
You’d find char if you tried to pry
Into her heart, burnt down inside
Left and right, sparks would fly
Soon enough, her heart caught fire
You left, cut off her oxygen
She wouldn’t let any love in
She almost died in flames of pain
Drowning in tears, squelched the blaze
With tears she cried, a sad display
But you didn’t leave for lack of love
You left to see her change her ways
Passion ablaze, you helped spark a craze
And lit a fire in her world’s sky
Hot air balloon, see her rise

Get high from watching her fly
Get lifted from the wind of her wings
Get lit from the flicker in her eyes
Get drunk off the tune she sings
Don’t step back from the cliff
Take a dive
Let her take you on a wild ride

Breathing life into monotonous lives
A roller coaster with no end in sight
Up and down and all around
From big bright cities to quiet towns
You can feel it in the air when she comes around
The breeze through trees makes a different sound
Leaves flash bolder colors as they float down
To the ground, where her feet are planted
Where she’s landed, you’d think she planned it
If you know her story, you know it’s not that
Young, wild, & free, a road trip with no map
Get lost with her, you won’t want to come back
Before you know it, you’ll get further off track
She’ll steal your heart and you won’t want it back
She’ll free your soul and that’s that

Get high from watching her fly
Get lifted from the wind of her wings
Get lit from the flicker in her eyes
Get drunk off the tune she sings
Don’t step back from the cliff
Take a dive
Let her take you on a wild ride

She’s more than a free bird, something much more magical
She makes it rain upward; she makes the crazy logical
Makes you forget concerns, your troubles and mistakes
From her you can’t help but learn how to dance in the rain
And appreciate your pain; she re-wires tired brains
She loves everyone the same, Asian, black, Puerto Rican
She leaps over burned bridges and speeds up dangerous ridges
She knows no limit, no enemy, no locked doors; creates hinges
Hangs with atheists, buddhists, gnostics, Christians
She wants to know everyone, will make you yearn for a bond
Her love knows no distance, on her couch or across the pond
She’ll make you feel like a prince; you’ll want to be the only one
But the way she burns, her love’s for everyone
Just like the sun, so come with her; run

Get high from watching her fly
Get lifted from the wind of her wings
Get lit from the flicker in her eyes
Get drunk off the tune she sings
Don’t step back from the cliff
Take a dive
Let her take you on a wild ride
