You wanted a challenge
that's calling you higher I landed
on my feet by crawling
I remember standing alone
trying to forget you idling I hate to admit that
That's my reference point
but there it is you say you want me

I'm what you found I'm upside down
you're in the air you're in the air and I am breathing

Brighten the stars the weather is lifting the heavens
love a love like this it's pulling
You higher twist it and turn this around
it lights from within it dribbles your chin now
Brings a smile I'm lost again I'm lost again

I'm what you found
I'm upside down
you're in the air you're in the air
And I am breathing you

I want the stars to know
they've won if only to beguile
the sky has opened up again in
Heaven reconciled I want you naked
I want you wild I want the stars to know they win
Give me that smile just give it me
just turn it on I'm lost again

I'm what you found I'm upside down
you're in the air I'm what you found I'm upside down
You're in the air I'm what you found I'm upside down
you're everywhere you're in the air
And I am breathing you
