There's something crazy about this day
Like I'm walking on a trampoline
I couldn't get much higher

So if I asked you, would you stay?
'Cause you remind me of a ballerina dancing on a wire
And I don't ever wanna say goodbye
I just wanna steal this moment right away from time

What do you say when you can't come down?
When you feel like you're 10 feet off the ground
What do you do when you're on the edge?
Now you're here and you've got me thinking about
Parachutes and airplanes
Thinking about parachutes and airplanes
Never hit the ground, ground, ground, ground

The world's a thousand shades of blue
Like we're here in our kaleidoscope
Don't want it to be over, yeah
Like everything that's in my mind
It's here right in front of lights
You're the one who got me here (got me here)

'Cause I don't ever wanna say goodbye, oh
I just wanna steal this moment right away from time

What do you say when you can't come down
When you feel like you're 10 feet off the ground
What do you do when you're on the edge
Now you're here and you've got me thinking about
Parachutes and airplanes
Thinking about parachutes and airplanes
That never hit the ground

When it's hard to start sometimes
I just need a place to get away
Turn the world around
I'll never calm me down
'Cause I don't ever wanna hit
Don't wanna hit the ground

Ground, ground, ground, ground
(Oh, I don't wanna hit the ground)
Ground, ground, ground, ground
(Don't wanna hit the ground)

What do you say when you can't come down
When you feel like you're 10 feet off the ground
What do you do when you're on the edge?
Now you're here and you've got me thinking about
Parachutes and airplanes
Thinking about parachutes and airplanes

What do you say when you can't come down
When you feel like you're 10 feet off the ground
What do you do when you're on the edge?
Now you're here, and you've got me thinking 'bout
Parachutes and airplanes
Thinking about parachutes and airplanes
That never hit the ground
Ground, ground, ground

Never hit the ground
Ground, ground, ground
