Lyrics:
Blowing up the street like a leaf
I skin my back a few times you'll see
Head over heels, my hand's on my heart
I'm making a promise, and that's a start

You're leaving a trail for me
I see you up in the tallest tree
You're throwing things down at me
I'm starting to climb but I'm starting on my knees

Somewhere along the way
The dusk it turns back into day
The sky is orange
The trees bend down against the wind
