lyrics

I am high above the clouds
Looking for a place to lay down
But it hurts too much to lift my head
And the earth is much too round
To ever think to stand on solid ground
So I just look away and fly instead

My heart beats like a broken clock
It's never right and skips a lot
But time can only stop when I'm with you
They say that love is just a game
But this broken bedpost bears a name
That I shouldn't remember but I do

And all these people say to go inside
It's much too cold a world to ever think to recognize
This feeling we call happiness
Is an absence of an emptiness
That's left when nothing's led tot wipe our eyes

Until my future turns to past
And sand goes up the hourglass
There's no way I can tell that this is real
So I'll forget what I have seen
And leaves will fly and change to green
But nothing will repair the way I feel

And all these people say to go inside
It's much too cold a world to ever think to recognize
This feeling we call happiness
Is an absence of an emptiness
That's left when nothing's led tot wipe our eyes

I am high
Above the clouds
Looking for a place to lay down
