lyrics

I’m not a rocket, I’m a hot air balloon
I’m not reaching for the stars, just a panoramic view

I’m not lost in the clouds,
I won’t lose sight of the ground
When I sing to the canyons,
I want to hear the echo sound

With a fair gust of weather,
I will untie my tether
And float like a feather away
At the whim of the wind of the day

When I wave from my basket
I want to see folks waving back at me
I want to keep an eye on my shadow
Passing over the forest and the trees

Go around the world in eight hundred days
My journey’s got no destination,
Well I’ll never be late

With a fair gust of weather,
I will untie my tether
And float like a feather away
At the whim of the wind of the day

I’m not a rocket
I’m a hot air balloon
I’m not reaching for the stars
Just a panoramic view
