lyrics

i need something beautiful
i need a new lease on life
i feel a little too permanent
and uninspired
we should go to niagara falls it's
just an hours drive
and i went there when i was sixteen and
had a pretty good time

its just the way birds flock around the falls
and the way the mist rips apart the sun
and the men who've died and who've walked high-wire
why we build casinos around the falls
when you're so close to god
you can't help but wanna risk your life

i need something wonderful
to make me think about stuff
i really think that i could be someone if
i knew who that was
and i only suggest niagara falls cause
it's just an hours drive
and i went there when i was sixteen and
had a pretty good time

and we'll walk around the edge of the falls
and we'll talk about how loud they are
and we'll think about the first people who saw them
they must have thought they were pretty awesome

its just the way birds flock around the falls
and the way the mist rips apart the sun
and the men who've died and who've walked high-wire
why we build casinos around the falls
when you're so close to god
you can't help but wanna risk your life
