about

An up-tempo tune about an office worker fantasizing about skiing in the powder snow he sees coming down outside his window with unplugged guitar riffs and a solo that together mimic the adrenaline rush.

lyrics

"Big Air"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

Lift-off aborted, on a powder day
With deadlines to meet, and bills to pay
Sometimes I get depressed, pressure gets me down
When I’m stuck inside working in a building downtown
Sometimes I daydream when life seems like a chore
Can’t wait to hit the slopes again, I’m ready to soar

I’m glad I’ve been floating through life, when I get big air
I’m slicing through the sky like a knife, when I get big air
If I don’t stick the landing, it’s alright, when I get big air
It’s not the destination, it’s the flight, when I get big air

No kickers to hit, in this cubicle cell
It's snowing out my window while I'm stuck here in hell
Just enough to get by, is all I can do
When I know I've got some time off coming up soon
Behind my desk I just sit in this uncomfortable chair
Behind my eyes I can fly, until I'm really there

I’m glad I’ve been floating through life, when I get big air
I’m slicing through the sky like a knife, when I get big air
If I don’t stick the landing, it’s alright, when I get big air
It’s not the destination, it’s the flight, when I get big air

Might have to call in sick tomorrow from the first chair
For what I put up with, it's only fair
I should be worried I could die, but I just don’t care
I never feel more alive, than when I’m gettin’ big air

Failure to launch, too much to get done
No time to play, no room for any fun
When the weight of the world is heavy on my mind
In my thoughts I drift off, far away from the grind
When I feel low, I know I can rise above
Can’t wait to feel it again, that sensation I love

I’m glad I’ve been floating through life, when I get big air
I’m slicing through the sky like a knife, when I get big air
If I don’t stick the landing, it’s alright, when I get big air
It’s not the destination, it’s the flight, when I get big air
