Accidents and stars for everyone
You are amazing
Half of them won't know until you're gone
And in this ritual you take command and lose control
And in this situation
Find an ocean
Sell your soul

[Chorus]
Fly around my pretty little miss
Why don't you
Fly around my pretty little miss
Why don't you
Fly around my pretty little miss
Why don't you
Fly around my pretty little miss

And when it's over
Set aside a moment to forget
It's now or never
Now's the chance to choose what you'll regret
You're taking all your time and leaving you with more than I want
Because I know this time absolutely, positively
Maybe maybe maybe maybe maybe maybe maybe

[Chorus]
Fly around my pretty little miss
Why don't you
Fly around my pretty little miss
Why don't you
Fly around my pretty little miss
Why don't you
Fly around my pretty little miss

[Guitar Solo]

[Bridge]
And all the signs of your life
You're making all time all right
And all the minds of your life
You make it fine

And when it's later
Open up your window just in case
You're a radar, built to scan the deeps of outer space
And if you recognize subtle patterns in the sky
You'll take it as a sign unless it eases your mind

[Chorus]
Why don't you
Fly around my pretty little miss
Why don't you
Fly around my pretty little miss
Why don't you
Fly around my pretty little miss
