PARACHUTE

Driving back to Massachusetts in your father’s car,
Top down, we saw all the stars.
I’ve been waiting for the fall to get back where you are,
Top down and talk about it all.
Top down. Top down.

Your heart is like a parachute.
It only opens when you fall.

Driving back to Massachusetts in your daddy’s car,
Broke down, yeah we broke down.
Lying back against the windshield, cars were blowing by.
And you cried, wrapped up in my arms.
You cried. You cried.

Your heart is like a parachute.
It only opens when you fall.
Your heart is like a parachute.
It opens when you’re falling down.
But look at me, I’m falling now.
Come let me pull you open.

And oh, you and I, autumn sky, trying to see so far.
Oh autumn sky, you and I, trying to see too far.
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba...

Driving back to Massachusetts.
I believe this is who we are.
I believe. Oh, I believe.

Yeah, your heart is like a parachute.
It keeps us both from falling down.
Your heart is like a parachute.
It keeps us both from falling now.
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba…
