I Cant Look Down - Lyrics by Alan Parson Project, The


Lyrics

(bairnson)

Another passenger
"your baggage thank you sir"
I don't wanna go
What am i doing here
I feel so sick with fear
God don't let it show

I must control myself
You must control me too

Cover my eyes cause i'm so high
I can't look down
I'm scared to fly and i'm so high
I can't look down

They say they'll care for me
But i would rather be
Both feet on the ground
What if the engine dies
These are no friendly skies'
My head's spining round

It's all a twist of fate
But it's myself i hate

Cover my eyes cause i'm so high
I can't look down
Afraid to fly and i'm so high
I can't look down

I must control myself
You must control me too

Cover my eyes cause i'm so high
I can't look down
Afraid to fly and i'm so high
I can't look down
I can't look down.....
