Skydiving With Rapunzel

Throw up the hair I’m floating through
‘Cause you said jump and now I’m on the moon

If you say jump I fly, I burn the sun with you in mind
And if you say love I’m how high, I’m off the graph of space and time

Let out your hair I’m battered down
‘Cause you said land and now I’m underground

‘Cause if you say stop I coast, if you say still then I implode
but if you say lover I’m yours, I burn to cinders at your toes

To spite a fear of heights

Tempt the fall with will to rise

It’s only bones keep breaking when you play that
Say that just one word I feel everything
Babylove keep making
me upside out

Throw up the hair I’m floating through …
