​Flying on the Ground Is Wrong

This song is by The Guess Who and appears on the album This Time Long Ago (2001) and on the album Shakin' All Over (2001).

Is my world not falling down
I'm in pieces on the ground and my eyes aren't open and I'm
Standing on my knees

But if crying and holding on
And flying on the ground is wrong
Then I'm sorry to let you down, but you're from
My side of town and I'll miss you

Turn me up or turn me down
Turn me off or
Turn me round, I wish I could have met you in a place where we both belong

But if crying and holding on
And flying on the ground is wrong
Then I'm sorry to let you down, but you're from
My side of town and I'll miss you

Sometimes I feel
Like I'm just a helpless child
Sometimes I feel
Like a king

But baby
Since I have changed
I can't take
Nothing home

City lights at a country fair
Never shine, but always glare, if I'm bright enough to see you then
You're just to dark to care

But if crying and holding on
And flying on the ground is wrong
Then I'm sorry to let you down, but you're from
My side of town and I'll miss you
And I'll miss you
Oh, and I'll miss you
Yeah, and I'll miss you
Oh, and I'll miss you
