Hot Air Balloon

We wrote a prelude
(kita tulis babak pembuka )
To our own fairy tale
(untuk kisah kita)
And bought a parachute
(dan kita beli parasut)
At a church rummage sale
(dipasar amal gereja)

And with a mean sewing machine
(dengan mesin jahit)
And miles of thread
(dan beruntai benang)
We sewed the day above L.A.
(kita rajut hari  diatas langit L.A)
In navy and red
(berwarna merah dan biru)

We wound a race track
(kita berpacu)
Through your mom's kitchen chairs
(diantara kursi kursi dapur ibumu)
And fought the shadows back
(dan menghadang gelapnya bayangan)
Down your dark basement stairs
(dibawah tangga gudangmu)

I lit a match, then let it catch
(kunyalakan api)
To light up the room
(tuk terangi ruangan itu)
And then you yelled as we beheld
(dan kau berteriak saat kita bersiap tuk terbangkan)
An old maroon hot air balloon
(balon udara  berwarna merah tua)

I'll be out of my mind
(ku kan menggila)
And you'll be out of ideas
(dan kaupun juga)
Pretty soon
(alangkah indahnya)
So let's spend
(mari kita habiskan)
The afternoon in a cold hot air balloon
(siang ini terbang tinggi di balon udara)
Leave your jacket behind
(tanggalkan jaketmu)
Lean out and touch the treetops over town
(sentuh dan rasakanlah puncak pepohonan di angkasa kota)
I can't wait
(tak sabar ku menunggu)
To kiss the ground
(tuk kembali menjejaki tanah)
Wherever we touch back down
(kita kan mendarat dimana saja yang kita suka)

La la la la la laaa
La la la la la laaa

We drank the Great Lakes
Like cold lemonade
(kita teguk air danau seperti meneguk minuman lemon dingin)
And both got stomach aches
(kita berduapun sakit perut)
Sprawled out in the shade
(hingga telentang di keteduhan)

So bored to death you held your breath
(bosan sekali, kau hela napasmu)
And I tried not to yawn
(dan ku berusaha tuk tak merasa kelelahan)
You made my frown turn upside down
(kau hilangkan kebingunganku)
And now my worries are gone
(kini keraguanku telah lenyap)
