Ups and downs
smiles and frowns
fluffy horizon views
going underground

Higher now
new sights and sounds
full of the joys of spring
‘til you come back down

Sunny-faced people
raining on down
wondering what it all means
Life on a trampoline

Urge to soar
stuck on the floor
you want to take on the world
with your mousy roar

You snipped the cord
now you're unmoored
Reaching up for the stars
is its own reward

Up on high wire
with heavenly choir
lacking in self-esteem
Life on a trampoline

Here comes another last chance
Tried saving the last dance for you
Caught the elastic of my big-boy pants
Now we’re stuck in a free fall for two
(What you are, you say you are, you get
to fall in love without a safety net)

As hard as you push
it’s never enough
You never quite make the scene
Life on a trampoline

Here comes another fat chance
Had the world in our hands but it slipped through
On the way up it’s all romance
but when gravity calls your fall comes due

It’s a scream
Life on a trampoline.
