I Need Liftoff

lyrics

I need liftoff, I need liftoff.

Once I was, I was afraid of my shadow.
I could not... get off the ground.

Looked to my left, rolled my eyes to the right,
my horizon... as black as night.
I need liftoff.

I couldn’t lift a finger. Couldn’t lift my head.
Couldn’t lift a feather, felt like I was dead.
I need liftoff.

Oh but papa, said to me...
I gave you wings, boy
but they’re no guarantee...

My wings were trapped, beneath my breath.
A tar black smoke, that smelled like death.

Once I was, I was afraid of my shadow:
A tar black smoke, that smelled like death.

I need liftoff.

I need liftoff, I need liftoff
