lyrics

Verse 1
=====
How can you say you don't like it if you've never even tried?
It's not as hard as it may seem.
We've come this far and well it seems that we're committed to the cause
But now you're running from the scene...

Verse 2
=====
While I'm all bound up about it there is nothing we can do
I'll have to trust you'll change your mind
To be honest dear we're looking kinda silly in this gear
And the pilot's due to climb, So....

CHORUS
======
Tell me why I'm left here choking on this cloud of smoke you blew at me? I just don't understand
And it doesn't' stand to reason your leaving me here alone
Cuz it's not what we had planned -- I kinda' hoped you'd understand -- Why not just...
Take me by the hand and fly with me?

Verse 2
=====
Who'd have known that altitude could make a person act like this?
Flailing arms and throwing fists?
There's no room to move around just close your eyes don't make a sound
And know that too soon we'll be on he ground
(...why am I left choking on this cloud of smoke......)

CHORUS
======
Tell me why I'm left here choking on this cloud of smoke you blew at me? I just don't understand
And it doesn't' stand to reason your leaving me here alone
Cuz it's not what we had planned -- I kinda' hoped you'd understand -- Why not just...
Take me by the hand and fly with...

BRIDGE
=====
Me, up in the atmosphere -- Hey! I see my house from here
The light is green they're sayin' "go" -- I'll fall for you, Oh don't you know? Oh no
Geronimo!

Verse 3
=====
Now we're speeding toward the ground at terminal velocity
And I'm glad that you're with me
We're strapped together safe and sound and yeah, for sure, here comes the ground
The chute has opened and we're floating free but....

CHORUS
======
Tell me why I'm left here choking on this cloud of smoke you blew at me? I just don't understand
And it doesn't' stand to reason your leaving me here alone
Cuz it's not what we had planned -- I kinda' hoped you'd understand -- Why not just...
Take me by the hand and ...
Tell me why I'm left here choking on this cloud of smoke you blew at me? I just don't understand
And it doesn't' stand to reason your leaving me here alone
Cuz it's not what we had planned -- I kinda' hoped you'd understand -- Why not just...
Take me by the hand and marry me?
