Up here in my tree  yeah... 
Newspapers meant enough to me  yeah...no... 
No more crowbars to my head  yeah... 
I'm trading stories with the leaves instead  yeah... 
Wave to all my friends  yeah... 
They don't seem to notice me  no... 
All their eyes trained on the street  yo  oh... 
Sidewalk cigarettes and scenes  yeah...yeah... 
Up here so high I start to escape 
Up here so high  the sky I scrape 
I'm so high  I hold just one breath here within my chest 
Just like innocence... 
I remember him, yeah... 
I swore I knew everything, oh yeah... 
They say knowledge is a dream, yeah... 
He's growing up just like me, yeah... 
I'm so light, the wind he shakes 
I'm so high, the sky I scrape, yeah... 
I'm so light I hold just one breath and go back to my nest 
Sleep with innocence... 
Up here so high, the bars they break... 
Up here so high, the sky I scrape... 
Had my eyes peeled both wide open, and I got a glimpse... 
Of my innocence...got back my innocence... 
Baby, got it...still got it...
