Defying Gravity

by Jesse Winchester

from the album Havana Daydreamin’


Lyrics

I live on a big round ball
I never do dream I may fall
And even one day if I do
Well I’ll jump up and smile back at you

I don’t even know where we are
They tell me were circling a star
Well I’ll take their word, I don’t know
But I’m dizzy so it may be so

I’m riding a big round ball
I never do dream I may fall
And even the high must lay low
But when I do fall I will be glad to go
Yes when I do fall I will be glad to go

Jimmy’s Note:

Like a solid relief pitcher, Jesse Winchester is a source of songs I return to again and again. I love the message in this song, simple and to the point. I never do dream I may fall-and if I do fall, what the hell.
