[Intro]

[Verse]
i'm sitting pretty and i don't know why
i found somebody, said he'd make me fly
wrapped me up in ribbons then he left me to die
wrapped me up in ribbons then he left me to die

[Verse]
told me he'd hold me 'til there was no more
told me that he'd love me from the top to the floor
wrapped me up in ribbons then he went for the door
wrapped me up in ribbons then he went for the door

[Pre-Chorus]
all the time he takes are the words that he breaks
all the time he takes are the words that he breaks

[Chorus]
i'm not flying
i'm not flying am i
i'm not flying so damn high in the sky
i'm not flying
i'm not flying am i
i'm not flying am i

[Verse]
you look so pretty in the dark of night
but i'm getting wise in the early light
i can see you falling like a homemade kite
i can see you falling like a homemade kite

[Verse]
you put your sunday best on for us all
painting up a promise that you know will fall
wrap me in your ribbons tie me to the wall
wrap me in your ribbons tie me to the wall

[Pre-Chorus]
all the time he takes are the words that he breaks
all the time he takes are the words that he breaks

[Chorus]
i'm not flying
i'm not flying am i
i'm not flying so damn high in the sky
i'm not flying
i'm not flying am i
i'm not flying am i

[Bridge]
you walk on everybody
you walk on everyone
you walk right up and you ask me to dance
you ask me to dance
you ask me to dance then you walk away

[Chorus]
i'm not flying
i'm not flying am i
i'm not flying so damn high in the sky
i'm not flying
i'm not flying am i
i'm not flying am i
