about

Recorded by Allie Mattison in her basement in the summer of 2010.

Tiny-bit off tempo/key, but whatever, I was young(er).

lyrics

Tucked away, behind these ribs
Is a sinking feeling
That I'm drowning now, within you
And everything you do
I tried my best to keep composure,
To think it over
But you called me and you called it love
And now we're crying out:

Mayday, Mayday (Mayday)
I'm not falling from this skyline (I'm falling)
Just for nothing, for nothing (for you)
I'd fall for you (I'd fall)
Another thirty thousand feet (again)
Just to see you smile before I hit the ground
(to see you smile)

Short of breath, and drowning into you
Fill my casket with the scent
Of your perfume, barely buried
But I'll always wait for...
The blood rushes into my veins
It's whispering,
Don't save me, Don't save me
And now we're crying:

Mayday, Mayday (Mayday)
I'm not falling from this skyline (I'm falling)
Just for nothing, for nothing (for you)
I'd fall for you (I'd fall)
Another thirty thousand feet (again)
Just to see you smile before I hit the ground
(to see you smile)

I've never been a dreamer,
But I often like to think that I'm
More than just another night
Lining all the places you sleep
Your words, they form lines
and they pull me down,
I hope to god, these feet
Don't ever touch the ground

Now we are crying out:

Mayday, Mayday
I'm not falling from this skyline
Just for nothing, for nothing
I'd fall for you (I'd fall)
Another thirty thousand feet (again)
Just to see you smile before I hit the ground
(to see you smile)
