So bear with me here.

We wrote a prelude to our own fairy tale

and bought a parachute at a church rummage sale


and with a mean sewing machine and miles of thread

we sewed the day above L.A. in navy and red

we roamed a racetrack through your mom's kitchen chairs

and fought the shadows back down your dark basement stairs

I lit a match then let it catch to light up the room

and then you yelled as we beheld an old maroon hot air balloon

Chorus:

A chord diagramC majorC                A chord diagramG+G
I'll be out of my mind
         A chord diagramA minorAm          A chord diagramFF
and you'll be out of ideas pretty soon
     A chord diagramC majorC    A chord diagramG+G        A chord diagramA minorAm              A chord diagramFF
so let's spend the afternoon in a cold hot air balloon
A chord diagramC majorC                 A chord diagramG+G
leave your jacket behind
      A chord diagramA minorAm                A chord diagramFF
lean out and touch the tree tops over town
     A chord diagramC majorC    A chord diagramG+G       A chord diagramA minorAm              A chord diagramFF
I can't wait to kiss the ground wherever we touch back down

Same verse:

We drank the great lakes like cold lemonade
and both got stomach aches, sprawled out in the shade
swore to death, you held your breath
and I tried not to yawn
you made my frown turn upside down and now my worries are gone

Same Chords for Chorus:

I'll be out of my mind
and you'll be out of ideas pretty soon
so let's spend the afternoon in a cold hot air balloon
leave your jacket behind
lean out and touch the tree tops over town
I can't wait to kiss the ground wherever we touch back down
