Parachute

VERSE
When I was a girl of seventeen
Went to a psychic to find what the future held for me
She said I’d meet a boy of the foreign kind
Ten years later, I would find

That this American girl would fall in love
With a Canadian Boy from the Great White North
Now I’m packing up this big Uhaul

Pre-CHORUS
And yeah, the future it could be scary
And all my friends tell me I’m crazy

CHORUS
Well I’ve done crazier things than fall in love before
I’ve jumped out of planes and I’ve traveled and I’ve seen the world
I want to take a deep breath, take a big leap
And now my eyes are closing
I want to trust, yeah I want to trust
That this parachute will open

VERSE
Been driving since yesterday and I pull over on the side of the road
Got to take this life in before my destiny takes hold
I look at the sky and the Milky Way is bright tonight

Pre-CHORUS
Standing out here in the Canadian Prairie
I ask myself if this is crazy

Repeat CHORUS


BRIDGE
And just then, greens and blues across the sky
I’ve never seen such beauty in my life
This is the first time that I’ve seen the Northern Lights
And I’m taking this as a good sign
Yeah I’m taking this as a good sign

CHORUS
Well I’ve done crazier things than fall in love before
I’ve jumped out of planes and I’ve traveled and I’ve seen the world
So I’m going to take a deep breath, take a big leap
And now my eyes are closing
I’m going to trust, yeah I’m going to trust
That this parachute will open
Will open
I’ve done crazier things than fall in love
Yeah, I’ve done crazier things than fall in love

Santa Fe

VERSE
She’s been everywhere in Never Never Land
She explores the landscape with a brush in her hand
‘Cause that’s the way she finds it

From a deep black iris that she brought to life
To a ladder ascending way up to the sky
Up to heaven if you think you can climb it

CHORUS
Yeah, Yeah she’s living the fantasy down in Santa Fe
Yeah, Yeah she’s living the fantasy down in Santa Fe

VERSE
A dairy girl to the Big Apple city
Where she met Alfred Stieglitz, they made love so pretty
But she longed for stark and infinite spaces

So she took to the badlands in New Mexico
And these visions so striking
She let them all flow
And this passion, no, you couldn’t contain it

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
Oh, oh Georgia you left your legacy
You knew how to rescue a canvas
From its desolate blankness indeed

Oh, oh Georgia, You helped solve a bit of life’s mystery
Oh, oh Georgia, Oh, oh Georgia

VERSE
On a weathered carpenter’s bench
Under Lawrence’s tree
She looked up at the stars
And made a wish to be free

CHORUS
The fantasy down in Santa Fe
Yeah, Yeah she’s living
The fantasy down in Santa Fe
Oh, oh Georgia
Oh, oh Georgia
Down in Santa Fe

Speechless

VERSE
You struck a chord in me so deep
You made my insides weep
You know I didn’t know you felt this way
You really opened your heart
And I can see you’re trying so hard
Not to be nervous, but you quiver

CHORUS
Hey, you blew me away
And I don’t know what to say
From a spark, to a fire, to a blaze
You’ve got my eyes lost in a gaze
You left me speechless

VERSE
How could I have been so blind?
You were here all the time
You stood by me and never let me down
Well I’ve played the game and I’ve danced the dance
Sometimes life only gives you one chance
And I don’t want to screw this thing up
this time around

CHORUS
Hey, you blew me away
And I don’t know what to say
From a spark, to a fire, to a blaze
You’ve got my eyes lost in a gaze
You left me speechless

BRIDGE
Reaching out, I take you in
This is where we begin
Your touch is too much
Tell me I’m good enough
For this love

CHORUS
Hey, you blew me away
And I don’t know what to say
From a spark, to a fire, to a blaze
You’ve got my eyes lost in a gaze
You left me speechless
