Balloon Boy

a.k.a What Do You Want From Me?

LISTEN TO:  Balloon Boy

Will he fall will he fall

From a great blue height

Will he laugh will he laugh

Will he die will he die

Will he suffocate

Will he immolate

Tiny boy of our dreams

Floating silver air streams

What do you want from me

The foolish you

Wish you could see what I see

The foolish you

What do you want from me

Can we see his tiny blue face

In the eye of the mind

Can we feel his mother’s embrace

He is broken

The wind was unkind

Take us away from the war

Take us away

Give us blood or give life

What do you want from me

The foolish you

You are so far beneath me

The foolish you

What do you want from me

What do you want from me?

The foolish you

Is there blood?

Is there blood?

Fear and love….

      You betcha – El Destructo needed some Mama time while I was working so I popped the headphones on him and turned on the mic. He is amazing.

    Loved it, I love your idea of blog-in-song. Really captures emotions of situations through music. Way to go!

    It is so good to hear your dear voice, and your wonderful creativity. I love the song but have some questions about the lyrics.
    Loved a call from your folks last week and hope that the new year brings me to Colorado. I really do miss you dear people and would love to see the twins. I would rather be in touch with you dear girl by email or phone.
    Lots to share. Love and hugs to all, Yoga Yama Z

    Camille, I like this and the sweet little voice in the background is awesome!! I have to admit I had so many mixed up emotions about the whole balloon experience…there were many possible lyrics in my head!!!

    I was listening to this song out of interest, it’s very good, you can see with a proper production it could be amazing. Just so you know I know the Heene family – they are lovely people – they are eccentric and got Very carried away but those kids love their mom and dad. They are human beings who have made a big mistake but are decent and loving people – please remember that.

      I will. Thank you – I do think that they made a horrible, sick mistake. But in the end we all make mistakes and our culture is at least partially to blame. I appreciate the time you took to listen and comment.

  1. […] a beautiful and fucked-up song about you, balloon boy.  You might like it. You can listen to it HERE. But of course it isn’t really a song about you. It’s a song about the rest of us. […]
