Where was I when the rockets came to life,
And carried you away into the alligator sky?
Even though I’ll never know what’s up ahead,
I’m never letting go, I’m never letting go

Uh uh, that’s not a plane, that’s me,
I’m sittin’ where I’m supposed to,
Floatin’ on the cloud, can’t nobody come close to,
The concrete and the sky switch places,
So now my ceiling is painted with cosmic spaces,
Firecracker to the moon, keep your eyes shut,
Blastin’ off like a rocket from the ground up,
I used to catch a cab on the Monday,
Now the taxi’s sellin’ lights on the runway,
Fly, condo on the Milky Way,
Where was I when the rockets came to life,
And carried you away into the alligator sky?
Even though I’ll never know what’s up ahead,
I’m never letting go, I’m never letting go

Uh uh, that’s not a plane, that’s me,
I’m sittin’ where I’m supposed to,
Floatin’ on the cloud, can’t nobody come close to,
The concrete and the sky switch places,
So now my ceiling is painted with cosmic spaces,
Firecracker to the moon, keep your eyes shut,
Blastin’ off like a rocket from the ground up,
I used to catch a cab on the Monday,
Now the taxi’s sellin’ lights on the runway,
Fly, condo on the Milky Way,
