High in the bell tower
I took my view
Over the downtown and the avenues
Where the streets are wide
And the people thrive
And it's further to fall down
Cos you fly so high

I've never seen such beauty
I've never seen such clear skies
I've never seen such high hopes
I've never seen such tired eyes

And I wish that I could be
Everything you are
Everything you are

Down in the delta
The city wakes
Turns on the TV
As the levy breaks
Where the streets are burnt
By the summer sun
And there's nowhere to run to
When your time has come

I've never seen such beauty
I've never seen such clear skies
I've never seen such high hopes
I've never seen such tired eyes

Ah loops up piece by piece
Sunlight's watching over me
Take my pills on a winter sleep
I send myself to sleep

And I wish that I could be
Everything you are
Everything you are (oh oh oh)
And I wish that I could see
The world the way you do
As selfishly as you

And I wish that I could be
Everything you are
Everything you are
And I wish that I could stay
My faith you way you do
As certainly as you

Clear skies gonna fall on you
Clear skies gonna fall on you
Clear skies gonna fall on you
On you, on you

Clear skies gonna fall on you
Clear skies
