v1
he's the shyest guy i know
he's best friends with the man in the moon
and they never really had a chance to talk
but he hopes they will some day soon

v2
he's never been down to earth
he's like a hot air balloon
he just drifts and drifts and drifts away
until he disappears from view

(chordal prechorus)

chorus:
and every day he sits here with me
as the sky fades to black
we watch all the sunsets
and he hopes they're watching back

v3
alex must've been born a bird
'cuz i swear he just soars away
he flies and glides, his head in the clouds
every single day

v4
and he's only fourteen
but he acts like an old man
he hasn't seen the entire world
but he knows every corner of this land

chorus:
and every day he sits here with me
as the sky fades to black
we watch all the sunsets
and he hopes they're watching back

extended chorus:
and he may disappear,
but he's never going to die
he's got the stars inside of him,
and he's absorbed into the sky
