​Parachute

This song is by Timothy B. Schmit and appears on the album Expando (2009).

See that shiny plane up in the steel gray sky
Going faster than the speed of sound
It don't care about a thing, it just keeps passing by
Oblivious to everything's that down

If I was on a cloud then I could hitch a ride
That's how I would finally get to you
I'd grab onto the wing and at the perfect time
I'd open up my parachute

Sailing through the sky
Soaring way up high

When you think you've had enough of all this living on your own
And you feel you're just about to break in two
When you're stuck in overdrive and you're longing for home
It's time to change your attitude
Open up your parachute

See the raindrops pounding on my window pane
Tapping out their rhythms from above
They don't pay any mind to those alone within
Thinkin' 'bout the ones they love

Fifty-two floors up above the city lights
Stranded in my temporary nest
The hotel operator, she says, "Have a good night"
I lay down, close my eyes, and do my best

Fitful, sleepless nights
Dreaming I can fly

When you think you've had enough of all this living on your own
And you feel you're just about to break in two
When you're stuck in overdrive and you're longing for home
Come down to earth and change your mood
And open up your parachute

Fitful, sleepless nights
Dreaming I can fly

When you think you've had enough of all this living on your own
And you feel you're just about to break in two
When you're stuck in overdrive and you're longing for home
It's time to change your altitude
Open up your parachute

Come down to earth and change your mood
Open up your parachute
