Closer to the Sky
by Michael Franti



I'm so very happy just to be here
I'm so glad I'm finally in a psace with you
People say that we should never do this
But they don't, they don't wanna know the truth

You can try, you can try
To build a fortress in your mind
Try to stack up all your things so high
You can try, you can try
To climb away from this life
But it will only bring you closer to the sky

People say that you should never come here
Something bad is only gonna happen to you
Better stay inside where we can see you
If you don't we'll make sure that you're feeling blue

You can try, you can try
To build a fortress in your mind
Try to stack up all your things so high
You can try, you can try
To climb away from this life
But it will only bring you closer to the sky

Some people think that life is worth living for tomorrow
Some people think that life is worth living for today
Some people think that life is worth nothing but sorrow
Some people think that life is worth living day by day

We can try, we can try
To build a fortress in your mind
Try to stack up all your things so high
We can try, we can try
To climb away from this life
But it will only bring us closer to the sky
