One day a girl I never knew

Filled my heart like a balloon

It grew so big until one day

It caught the wind and flew away

 

It met a kite along the breeze

That only wanted to be free

From the strings that hold it down

Suspicious of the solid ground

 

Floating high above the beach

Trembling softly out of reach

With sky above and sea below

A blue balloon in a foreign home

 

The current swept it higher still

Through storms and seagulls, clouds and chills

It swelled with pride and with a bang

Yelled you will not forget me

 

So what of holes in sinking ships

And rings that bind your heart

One day a girl I never knew

Filled my heart forever
