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

So if I ask you, would you stay
'Cause you remind me of a
Ballerina dancing on a wire

And I don't ever want to say goodbye
I just want to steal this moment
Right away from time

What do you say when you can't look down
When you feel like you're ten feet off the ground
What do you do when you're on the edge
Now you're here and you got me thinking 'bout

Parachutes and airplanes
Thinking about
Parachutes and airplanes
We'll never hit the ground, ground, ground, ground

The world's a thousand shades of blue
Like we're here in the kaleidoscope
Don't want it to be over

But everything that's in my mind
Is here right in front of my eyes
And you're the one who got me here

And I don't ever want to say goodbye
I just want to steal this moment
Right away from time

What do you say when you can't look down
When you feel like you're ten feet off the ground
What do you do when you're on the edge
Now you're here and you got me thinking 'bout

Parachutes and airplanes
Thinking about
Parachutes and airplanes
We'll never hit the ground

'Cause life gets hard sometimes
And I just need a place to get away
So turn the world around
I'm never coming down
'Cause I don't ever wanna hit the, wanna hit the ground

Ground, ground
I don't wanna hit the ground
I don't wanna hit the ground

What do you say when you can't look down
When you feel like you're ten feet off the ground
What do you do when you're on the edge
Now you're here and you got me thinking 'bout

Parachutes and airplanes
Thinking about
Parachutes and airplanes
Yeah, yeah

What do you say when you can't look down
When you feel like you're ten feet off the ground
What do you do when you're on the edge
Now you're here and you got me thinking 'bout

Parachutes and airplanes
Thinking about
Parachutes and airplanes
We'll never hit the ground, ground, ground, ground
Never hit the ground, ground, ground, ground

    I think the song means that sometimes when you're feeling down or lost, you need to escape to your own world to relieve yourself of the burdens of real life,
    And when you are there, your mind roams free and you feel as though you never want to return to reality.
