lyrics

(Andrew Dorff / Lori McKenna)

I spend my whole life climbing ladders
Playing catch with the stars
A million miles away from disaster
And invincible unbreakable hearts

I spend my life floating backwards
And not because I want to be free
I have no choice I must surrender
Close my eyes and Jump from the dream

Cuz the world is full of ups and downs
Highs and lows ain’t that the truth
But don’t you know that’s why
God made ladders & parachutes

I’ve had love so perfect
Even Heaven looked up to see me there
And I have been so damn broken
Crashing hopelessly through thin air

Cuz the world is made up of ups and downs
Highs and lows ain’t that the truth
But don’t you know that’s why
God made ladders & parachutes

Repeat 1st chorus

Oh don’t you know that’s why
God made ladders & parachutes
