LYRICS

Can you see the colors in the air
Can you see, am I hallucinating
I woke up and I was walking down the stairs
I woke up but I’m still sleeping here
Is this lucid dreaming I am (dreaming)
I look down a thousand mi-i-i-i-i-i-iles (mi-i-i-i-i-i)
Mi-i-i-i-i-i-iles (mi-i-i-i-i-i), mi-i-i-i-i-i-iles (mi-i-i-i-i-i)

I-I will fall down, will fall down, lalilalala
I-I will fall down, will fall down, lalilalala

Can you see me I’m floating in the air
Can you wake me I’m crying
I can see you, you’re lying next to me
I can’t wake you, I’m trying
Astral Projection can get me out of here
Astral Projection
Ahahahahahah, ahahahahahah
Ahahahahahah, ahahahahahah
Ahahahahahah, ahahahahahah

I-I will fall down, will fall down, lalilalala
I-I will fall down, will fall down, lalilalala (ah ah)

I fly away away away
I fly away away away
I fly away away away
I fly away
