Hi guys. My name is Erin McCamley and I'm a singer/songwriter. This is my second video of one of my original songs. It's called "Hot Air Balloon Chase" and I just wrote it a few weeks ago. If you like what you hear, you can purchase my CD "Luminous," which is for sale on iTunes or Cdbaby.com/cd/erinmccamley and some other sites. I wrote and performed the lyrics, vocal part, and piano part. Thank you!
Hot Air Balloon Chase
I can tell this time is different
I can feel that I really want to stop
We sit around a big brown table
These faces all belong to people like me
I'm still not sure that people can change,
I just don't know yet.
And I remember this road so well
It makes me wish I had a blueprint of my brain
I could change.
I would study each and every inch
Of the things that make me who I am.
Just small marks on paper, I'd be less attached
Just erase the parts that make me bad.
I'm just so tired of holding you back
And I know I do that.
We are forever stuck in this dull race
Two hot air balloons
Stuck in space.
The fever comes in waves
We've been up here for days
The view remains the same.
We feel no different than when we first came
And we wonder what flight is
'Cause we've been 'round the world many times
But this is not exactly what we had in mind.
And as I watch your eyes
Hone in on my disguise
I used to be so wise
But it's not my fault my brain keeps telling me lies
But someday soon we'll both realize
It's something I can't beat.
But your faith is keeping me alive
And from this distance you're the same size
As the sun.
They said I'd recognize the one.
