Woke up to face the morning, but the morning let me down
It came so fast I could barely see the sky
And though I heard the warning, I was told to hang around
To face the fear and the fact that I might die
I was dancing to the radio when I heard someone outside
The rain was gone, but the sky was low,
and I saw her wave goodbye
I shed a tear cuz she had to go, had to go somewhere and hide
The beat was clear, but my heart was slow
and I thought that I would die
I was headin' down the freeway on a road beneath the sky
Lookin' for a getaway, some way to say goodbye
My door was closed when she said,
"Would you like to learn how to fly?"
The road became a runway
and I thought that I would die
I was walkin' through the gallows
when I saw the hangman turn to greet me
As time was throwing shadows
and I wondered how my life would free me
The sun was down, the sky was open and I pondered for a while
I felt the rope, then began to choke,
and at first I felt a smile, but I survived....
