Swinging in the Clouds

I noticed the other day

While swinging in the clouds

That life is quite a joke

There is no way back

Things always come and go

When you think things are right

You break a leg and are left to cry

Sometimes you break all your bones

You wait for the perfect day

To wear that white dress

But you get your period

And you know what happens next

I learned the other day

While swinging in the clouds

That I’ve lost all control

But I want to smile again

Always waiting for the ball to drop

Forgetting about the meal I just had

And the chances to cuddle

With someone who’s still close

I’m going to jump and swim

I will stop swinging

I will hold each raindrop

I will lay on the whiteness

I will start living
