I have always been the type to think before I speak
I have always been the type to look before I leap
Like a boat out of the blue
I was struck and there was you
For the moment I believe I could let go

You lift me up into the sky
Feels like I could fly
Never gonna die
If I almost made it but not quite
Then you're flying out of sight
And you know I can't come with you
Cos I've always been scared of heights

I didn't think I need someone to make me change my ways
Never thought I'd find someone who brighten up my date
Someone who made me forget
My hands were tied my wings were clipped
Someone who'd make me believe that I could let go

You lift me up into the sky
Feels like I could fly
Never gonna die
If I almost made it but not quite
And you're flying out of sight
And you know I can't come with you
I've always been scared of heights
Scared of heights

I wish I never knew how great it feels up in the air
I wish I never got to feel the wind blow through my head
When in my dreams you'll always be
Flying high along with me
In my dreams I always fear that I can let go

You lift up into the sky
Feels like I could fly
Never gonna die
If I almost made it but not quite
And you're flying out of sight
And I know I can't come with you
Cos I've always been scared of heights
I've always been scared of heights

    I think this means he is in a relationship that he cant leave becaused he has ties but has fallen in love with someone else who has swept him off his feet. He is scared to leave his relationship and is losing his new love because of this.
