Bouncing Off The Ceiling (Upside Down)
Lyrics A*Teens

Upside down [x3]

My grades are down from A's to D's
I'm way behind in history

I lost myself in fantasies
Of you and me together

[Sara & Marie]
I don't know why - I - I but dreaming's all I do
I won't get by-I-I on mere imagination

[Chorus: All]
Upside down
Bouncing off the ceiling
Inside out
Stranger to this feeling
Got no clue what I should do
But I'll go crazy if I can't get next to you
To you

My teacher says to concentrate
So what- his name was Peter the Great
The kings and queens will have to wait
Cuz I don't have forever

[Sara & Marie]
I wish that I - I - I could walk right up to you
Each time I try - I - I the same old hesitation


Somehow someday
You will love me too
One day will be the day when
all my dreams come true

Upside down, yeah yeah yeah yeah

[Chorus x2]

But I'll go crazy if I can't get next to you [x2]
