When I first laid eyes on you
Well, the night just felt so odd
You looked at me and the stars lined up
So I thought I'd heard from God
And I gave him my best shot

Loving you was like throwing a lasso around a tornado
I tried to hold on to you
Took a ride on a tilt-a-whirl that sits on top of the world
Man, I thought I could show you
I've always been afraid of flying
But you can't blame a girl for trying

Felt like a pearl when I was holding your hand
So precious I forgot
You could have any girl but I only wanted one man
And you were everything I'm not
Still I gave it my best shot

Loving you was like throwing a lasso around a tornado
I tried to hold on to you
Took a turn on a high trapeze swinging over the deep
I thought I could show you
I've always been afraid of flying
But you can't blame a girl for trying

Like a vine bends a tree to the ground
I won't hold you down
I tried to climb just as high
But I found all the clouds touch the ground
In this small town

Took a ride on a high trapeze swinging over the deep
I thought I could show you
That I've always been afraid of flying
But you can't blame a girl for trying
No, you can't blame a girl

    My meaning of lasso is that she is having some troble keeping up with the person she is in love with and is compaing it with trying tohold onto a tornado as it always slips away but never gives up with out tryig harder and harder, think of it like this what if you had to keep an untamed animal and you had to try and tam it no matter how hard you try the animal doesnt listen well now you know how it feels to have the love of your life always slips away from you in a second but if you still dont know what it feels like then take this what if having your long time crush about to ask you ok... Do you get where im going now anyways, so this person is about to ask you out but his/her friends are always getting in the way. Its like trying to hold onto him but he awalys get away, that is the meaning to this song to me.
