It`s four o`clock
And the bells are ringing
The sun is in the sky
I hear the song
That the breeze is bringing
I smile and close my eyes

Slowly drifting
Deeper and deeper inside
I hear your voice
Whispering softly
We`re leaving the world outside

* Just hold my hand
And we`ll go skyscraping
So high you and I
If your mama asks you
Say we`re just escaping
We`re gonna be sky high

Time flies
But I don`t know where it`s going
You vanish in the haze
Sometimes I wish that life
Could be everlasting
These are our Polaroid days

Slowly melting
The sun slips from the sky
I see your face
But it`s fading quickly
We`re leaving the world behind

(* repeat 3 times)
We`re gonna be sky high
You and me, so high
It`s gonna be all right
