Darlin', you know it ain't right, but you do it anyway.

If I were only what I cannot be
and you were just what I thought would make me change
would it be so strange?

Did winter tell you what summer failed to,
the little lies that turn your lips blue?
Oh, but are they true?

To pretend that you can fly
might be worth it if you died
if it's beautiful to watch.
What a waste if it is not.

I made a bet that I could finish
a million miles before you'd know I'd gone.
Do you think I was wrong?

Well this ground looks sure, but I'm insecure.
I think I'll fall just to see if you were right.
You were right.

To pretend that you can fly
might be worth it if you died
if it's beautiful to watch.
What a waste if it is not.

Cause if the wind could make you fly
I'd find a storm and try
to see the color of your eyes
by the lightning in the sky
