High on a scaffolding I stand
Looking up, I reach out with both hands,
What will it take to reach for the skies?
To fly with the clouds to see the sunlight?
To see heavens eyes?
I’m standing as high, as high I can be
Reaching upwards, wishing birds would wing me
Icarus feathers would I gladly take
Though I’d calculate to not make his mistakes.
Heaven I’d forsake.
I carelessly look down in my attempt to dream
My vertigo kicks -my heads all a spin
Who was I kidding, wishing to fly?
When all I can do -is cry when I’m high.
Heaven, I wish you goodbye.
