​Learn To Fly

This song is by Tori Amos.

Got a red balloon
It's got me dreaming dreaming dreaming of you
I let it go
Like you baby you
Slipped through my hand
Like my brain I know
Has always been slow
So
I got to learn to fly
Or I'll be drowning drowning drowning in this everyday cry
They say the best swimmers can drown
That I know
'Cause I made a mess of my life
I know I made a mess of my life

Like a bird on a wire I feel like a bird on a wire
Then why do I fall before I learn to fly guess I'll learn to crawl

Can a snake have wings?
Can a girl who lost her courage teach a lion to sing?
A beginning pilot got a beginning plane
I can't compete with your heavy metal dream
These dark ages got some fancy machines

Like catfish said catfish and eddie
Going to show you how girl to walk on water
We'll take it slow we ain't going to rush you
We'll start out small with the Mississippi
They say I can't look back
They say I can't look back
Why did I look below?
Oh god I'm sinking fast
I got to learn to fly
Or I'll be drowning drowning drowning in this everyday cry
They say the best swimmers can drown
With every stroke I lie to myself
With every stroke I lied to myself
