Big Air


Lyrics

"Big Air"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

Lift-off aborted, on a powder day

With deadlines to meet, and bills to pay

Sometimes I get depressed, pressure gets me down

When I’m stuck inside working in a building downtown

Sometimes I daydream when life seems like a chore

Can’t wait to hit the slopes again, I’m ready to soar


I’m glad I’ve been floating through life, when I get big air

I’m slicing through the sky like a knife, when I get big air

If I don’t stick the landing, it’s alright, when I get big air

It’s not the destination, it’s the flight, when I get big air


No kickers to hit, in this cubicle cell

It's snowing out my window while I'm stuck here in hell

Just enough to get by, is all I can do

When I know I've got some time off coming up soon

Behind my desk I just sit in this uncomfortable chair

Behind my eyes I can fly, until I'm really there


I’m glad I’ve been floating through life, when I get big air

I’m slicing through the sky like a knife, when I get big air

If I don’t stick the landing, it’s alright, when I get big air

It’s not the destination, it’s the flight, when I get big air


Might have to call in sick tomorrow from the first chair

For what I put up with,  it's only fair

I should be worried I could die, but I just don’t care

I never feel more alive, than when I’m gettin’ big air


Failure to launch, too much to get done

No time to play, no room for any fun

When the weight of the world is heavy on my mind

In my thoughts I drift off, far away from the grind

When I feel low, I know I can rise above

Can’t wait to feel it again, that sensation I love


I’m glad I’ve been floating through life, when I get big air

I’m slicing through the sky like a knife, when I get big air

If I don’t stick the landing, it’s alright, when I get big air

It’s not the destination, it’s the flight, when I get big air
