Lyrics

CASTLE IN THE AIR

Written by Andrea Wittgens / Jimm McIver)

God bless the astronomer
Tripping over his own two feet
He wakes up in a well with a story to tell
And a secret he won’t repeat
Catches a fever
Becomes a believer
Sells the farm for a castle in the air

Madness rolls in like fog on a shoreline
To take away heartache and longing
But it’s shipwrecks and fishnets that litter the film set
And all the starlets are yawning
(They say ) “Mind your own business
The sky needs no witness”
But I’m gonna build me a castle in the
A castle in the air

I CAN'T SEE THE STARS FROM HERE
AND I DON'T STRAY TOO FAR THIS TIME OF YEAR

So I climb to the ledge for the vertigo
Cause I like the feeling of falling
I could never say no to the persistent ghost
And the street below me is haunted
Two feet in front of me
You can take the rest of me
Take me on up to the castle in the air
The castle in the air
The castle in the air

Ooohs

Pray all night for a miracle
And you’ll get a sunrise as promised
Be it brimstone or fire, either way you’re a liar
It’s the grounds gonna keep me honest
But God and the Devil
They both say I'm special
And I gotta room at the castle in the air
the castle in the air


I CAN'T SEE THE STARS FROM HERE
AND I DON'T STRAY TOO FAR THIS TIME OF YEAR
I KNOW A WAY OUT OF HERE
I KNOW A WAY OUT OF HERE
I KNOW A WAY OUT OF HERE
