For the subtitle to this particular clip:

An 80 year old woman bravely decides to try her first ever skydive
but the resulting jump is anything but smooth.
As you can see her horrifying ordeal was all ‘caught on tape’. [=videotaped]

Are you excited to go skydiving?
I’m real excited.
Who’s idea was ‘all this’? [=this]
Any occasion?
{She got everyone together.}
Occasion–what’s the reason?
I just ‘turned’ 80. [=became=I am now (80)]
Happy Birthday!
Thank you.
Is this something you’ve always wanted to do?
For years.

After a nightmare ride, Laverne and her instructor eventually reached the safety of ‘terra firma’ [=solid earth]
{Oh my God}
She is shaken but apparently not hurt.
{Let me get my clothes}

Song Lyrics:
As I lie here tossing in my bed
Lost in my fears remembering what you said
And I try to hide the truth within
The mask of myself shows its face again
Still I lie time and time again
Will you deny me when we meet again?

And I feel like I’m falling
Farther every day
But I know that you’re there
Watching over me
And I feel like I’m drowning
The waves crashing over me
But I know that your love
It will set me free

As I find truth where I found it times before
As I search for your hope
I’m finding so much more
And I try to be more like you
And I deny myself to prove my heart is true

I hear your voice calling
The time has come for me
Inside this life I’m living
There’s nothing left for me
My mind is slowly fading
So far away from me
Each time I start crawling
You’re there watching me
