Misty, when you want to hit those wedding bells
You should stop yourself
You should see yourself angry
Screaming to the ceiling, girl, you look like hell
But when riding pills we get heavenly
On a balcony

Baby's not a wreck on the wayside yet
Though she stuck out her neck
To see how dark she could take it
The wind is wild, why, the spray is wet!
And a heart gets high as a heart can get
On a balcony
High above the sea

You are the woman, on some Firefall
Do you want to ball on that brilliant beach
So hard I thought I heard my future daughter call
Through the static wall of a flashing dream

Said it's a wild, weaving ride to the sea
Little demon, believe it from me
They say that you're living off something-with-soda
Some fine wine from 1-9-8-3
And they say you're a fantasy

Clap, like a comma
Hear the sentence sing
Hear the whole world ring
Hey, it's bursting with bravery
Misty, when it's whittled down to just one thing
It amazes me, that simplicity

And I wandered through the market like a slumming king
And the sun, it stings
I hadn't seen the sun for weeks
When we finally walk away from everything
On our own four feet
I hear you call my name from a balcony
High above the sea

I hear you call from a balcony
I hear you call my name from a balcony, baby
Oh, I love the way you say it
