Parachute
Would you be my parachute
Let me be your parachute
Would you be my parachute
Parachute

He was stalking for you
Somewhere in the dim streets far below
You were flying high above him
And the frozen fields of snow
You were up above the sadness
You could let your spirit fly
You were way out in the blue
Up in a perfect patch of sky

Soaring through the clouds
With the wind in your hair
How were you to know
What you would find up there

You were gliding like a bird when
You first felt your engines fail
You could see the damage to
The wings and to the tail
That's when you knew
It was not a drill this time
You screamed in your dream
With your life on the line

Who do you trust
When it's live or die
With only one chance
To get it right
Just when you think you're all alone
All on your own
What will you do

Let me be your parachute
Let me be your parachute
Let me be your parachute
When you fall, when you fall

I would trade it all for true love
Here at the bitter end
I've endured the violence
And I'm starving for a friend
I've been strung out on the drug
Since I survived the hit and run
I'm drowning in the whiskey
And I'm swallowing the gun

Push comes to shove
In this twist of fate
I'm falling from the edge
In my sudden leap of faith

Who can I trust
When it's live or die
With one last chance in life
To get it right
Just when I think I'm all alone
All on my own
What will I do

Would you be my parachute
Let me be your parachute
Would you be my parachute
Parachute

Would you be my parachute
Let me be your parachute
Would you be my parachute
Parachute
