Lyrics:

There’s a thing called
There’s this thing called
We fly balloons on this fuel called
We fly balloons on this fuel called love
Whatcha chikichat                                  Verse 1
What’s the fuel called?
Fair-weather storms are in your head
Fair-weather storms are in your head

We fly balloons on this fuel called love
We fly balloons on this fuel called love           Chorus 1
We fly balloons on this fuel called
We fly balloons on this fuel called love

There’s a thing called
There’s a thing called
There’s a thing called
There’s a thing called                             Bridge
There’s a thing called
There’s a thing called
There’s a thing called
There’s a thing called

We fly balloons on this fuel called love
We fly balloons on this fuel called love
We fly balloons on this fuel called
We fly balloons on this fuel called love
We fly balloons on this fuel called love           Chorus 2 / Outro
We fly balloons on this fuel called love 
We fly balloons on this fuel called
We fly balloons on this fuel called love
