lyrics

This city has the power
To lift you up and knock you down within an hour
And when you’re looking for a thrill
You’ll find one though it never will
Be just what you expected
One happenstance encounter and your life is redirected

My answer would be yes
If only you would ask it
This thing has got me puttin’ all my eggs into one basket
My answer would be yes
So come on now just ask it
We’ll fly away up high inside a hot air balloon basket

Our chemical equation
Yields a form of pure elation
The scientists they all agree
That when it comes to you and me
No need for fuel or fire
The spark that exists between us will not soon expire

My answer would be yes
If only you would ask it
This thing has got me puttin’ all my eggs into one basket
My answer would be yes
So go ahead and ask it
We’ll fly away up high inside a hot air balloon basket

Obviously my preference would be
Multicolored panels but
The grayest gray would be okay as long as you’re with me
It could be said that my head’s
Been in the clouds for a while now
I think it’s time to take my body with it for the ride

We haven’t spent much time together
Still I think we’d conquer any weather
Now I don’t mean to freak you out
This song is not at all about
What others might imply
It’s simply about you and I taking to the sky

My answer would be yes
If only you would ask it
This thing has got me puttin’ all my eggs into one basket
My answer would be yes
So come on now just ask it
We’ll fly away up high inside a hot air balloon basket
