May 2013 Single

lyrics

Cascading white balloons rained on me
While in the air you threw and caught me
On polo fields of grass and sand
Rolling and dancing to the band

We got caught making love in the park
Ringing in the New Year in the dark
We flopped in your room each night
With your painted black tree in sight

They may have called me crazy back then it's true
But I was only crazy, crazy for you (crazy for you)

You fought for me with my old flame
Who turned love into an ugly game
Though he did make your head bleed
You were still the victor despite his greed

When they called me trouble you pressed on
When they saw the rubble said move one
Your devotion never wavered
I'd never had love of this flavor

They may have called me crazy back then it's true
But I was only crazy, crazy for you (crazy for you)

But then I stayed up when you layed down
Late nights I played out on the town
By then the signs were clear
Our breaking point it was near

They may have called me crazy back then it's true
But I was only crazy, for loving you

Desert Balloons, Desert Balloons,
Desert Balloons, how they made you swoon

Damn those, Damn those Desert Balloons.
