Whoa-oh-oh-oh
I had a dream last night
I didn't know which floor to get off on. Hey-yay.
The doors they opened on, 4 and 5 and 6
And you were gone, all gone.
I didn't understand, I didn't want to know
At least I took a chance
I had to let it go.

Elevator goes up
Elevator come down
And you just go with the flow
'Til your feet are back on the ground.

It's an endless ride
Sometimes it takes you up
Sometimes it tears you down inside
But it's the butterflies
That keep the feeling so alive, so alive.
You gotta get back that high.

And in my dream last night
The doors they finally shut
And I was there, somewhere
Alone in my reality
Inside an empty box
That's filled with air
But I don't care, no.
Next time I'll get it right
Next time I'll be OK
I'll have a different dream tonight
Tomorrow's another day.

Elevator goes up
Elevator come down
And you just go with the flow
'Til your feet are back on the ground.

It's an endless ride
Sometimes it takes you up
Sometimes it tears you down inside
But it's the butterflies
That keep the feeling so alive, so alive,
You gotta get back that high.

You'll never know what you're gonna get
What you don't expect
Can come and find you.
If you laugh or cry, you run and hide
But it's all right.

Elevator goes up
Elevator come down
And you just go with the flow
'Til your feet are back on the ground.

It's an endless ride
Sometimes it takes you up
Sometimes it tears you down inside
But it's the butterflies
That keep the feeling so alive, so alive.
You gotta get back that high.

Elevator goes up
Elevator come down
(It's an endless ride
Sometimes it takes you up
Sometimes it tears you down inside)
It's an endless ride
Sometimes it takes you up
Sometimes it tears you down inside
But it's the butterflies
That keep the feeling so alive, so alive,
You gotta get back that high.
You gotta get back that high.
(Fade)

    You can never be sure of what's gonna happen next in your life. In short, anything can happen. The lyrics "you'll never know what you're gonna get. What you don't expect can come and find you" says it all. =)
