grounded lyrics – soul asylum

“grounded”

when aid turned sideways
and it’d head on down the highway
say this is my way, disappearing forever
but there ain’t just one way
so you choose the fun way
slide down the runway
on a ticket that goes two ways
and by the way that it sounded
you thought that you’d be astounded
but you left it like you found it
cause it wasn’t yours to take
what once seemed like dying
soon turned into flying
so you settle for trying
and you wish you were grounded
no you cannot get much higher
than your utmost desire
so you bring it down to size and
now it seems that you are grounded
by the way that it sounded
you thought that you’d be astounded
but you left it like you found it
now you find that you are grounded
