I am at a thousand feet up in the sky
And I don't ever want to touch the ground.
I have flown overseas
Wandered across a hundred cities
I have met over one thousand souls
Every parting has left me with an open wound.
My body bears too many scars
Blood dripping out of them
Like tears pouring from my eyes
What could be worth such a dear price ?
Friendship alone makes it worthwhile
These ties alone keep me alive.
I have said good bye one too many times,
One too many chunks ripped off my heart
Have turned me ghost, stumbling, aimless,
Struggling alone, emotion-wrecked.
Take it all away
For I am up a thousand feet high,
And would never want to touch the ground.
All I need is far less than I already have,
My hopes and dreams, my loves and flaws
Are all I truly care about for now.
The void I feel inside my heart
Restores some balance in my life
The emptiness I wished be filled
Is fuel enough to keep me standing
Moving on: a widespread lie
For he who's up high in the sky
Shall never want to touch the ground.
Moving on: should I abide?
Would there be purpose walking forward
When all I love I left behind?
A change in the wind has freed my mind
This tear running shall be my last
I will stay up a thousand feet high
And I shall never ever touch the ground.
Make choices. Make mistakes. Over and over again.
