Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness - Synesthesia

[Verse 1]
I saw pictures from the space shuttle
North America at night
I could almost see my house
I could almost see the rest of my life
Now my mother's in the hospital and my friends are in the news
Collecting trophies for the songs they wrote
When we lived in the shadow of the moon

[Verse 2]
Guess I never made a gold record and I've never been to Mars
But I've traveled 'round this world shooting fireworks at falling stars (and prison bars)
And my father's got a decent job, I hear he's finally pulling through
There's more to life than singing songs we write when we are in the shadow of the moon

[Chorus]
And I see colors when I hear your voice
Grab your wings, they're putting gravity on trial
I see colors, I don't hear the noise
Because we're only flying for awhile, because we're only flying for awhile

[Verse 3]
I saw this picture of my niece twisting high above the narrow beam
And my brother looked so proud, like he woke up in this perfect dream
And I've known you all my life, but I knew you long before that too
Let's go dancing to the songs we wrote when we lived in the shadow of the moon
[Chorus]
And I see colors when I hear your voice
Grab your wings, they're putting gravity on trial
I see colors, I don't hear the noise
Sometimes we're only flying for awhile

[Pre-Chorus]
I could love you in the falling rain
Grab your things, this is a storm we're meant to ride
Like synesthesia, aboard a stalling plane
It's like we're only flying for awhile, flying for awhile

[Chorus]
And I see colors when I hear your voice
Grab your wings, they're putting gravity on trial
I see colors, I don't fear the choice
Sometimes we're only flying for awhile

[Pre-Chorus]
And I could love you in the falling rain
Grab your things, this is a storm we're meant to ride
Like synesthesia, aboard a stalling plane
It's like we're only flying for awhile, flying for awhile
Flying for awhile, flying for awhile

[Bridge]
I can see the colors running, when I hear the music playing...
[Chorus + Bridge]
Flying for awhile...
