This early summer so uncertain
Between the crosses, row on row
November children, never sleeping
Beneath the falling snow
Empty arms that reach out for you
Watch the Earth turn at your feet
I have lost my innocence
In the winter of my, my discontent

Look before you leap
Standing right on the edge
I can see my whole life pass before my eyes
So think before you speak
If you get in over your head
You can lose by a heartbeat

Here we are now, high above this
This perfect Earth beneath the sky
All the humans, all the lovers
Dream their dreams as we go by
Love is plenty, love is famine
In empty fields where airplanes die
Kill the engines as we fly
We are parachutes against the sky

Look before you leap
Standing right on the edge
I can see my whole life pass before my eyes
So think before you speak
If you get in over your head
You can lose by a heartbeat
Lose by a heartbeat

Did you think this was a game?
Where we could spread our wings
And fly away, fly away

Look before you leap
Standing right on the edge
I can see my whole life pass before my eyes
So think before you speak
If you get in over your head
You can lose by a heartbeat
Look before you leap
