  • Baby blue staring in the window pane
    Just counting drops of rain
    Wondering if she's got the guts to take it
    Running down her dreams in a dirty dress,
    Now her heart's a mess
    Praying she'll find a way to make it

    So keep on climbing, though the ground might shake
    Just keep on reaching though the limb might break
    We've come this far, don't you be scared now
    'Cause you can learn to fly on the way down

    Searching for a sign in the night even like a lonely string of lights
    That'll burn just long enough for you to see it
    The road's been long and lonely and you feel like giving up
    There's more to this than just the breath you're breathing

    So keep on climbing, though the ground might shake
    Just keep on reaching though the limb might break
    We've come this far, don't you be scared now
    'Cause you can learn to fly on the way down

    On the way down

    You won't forget the heavy steps it took to let it go
    Close your eyes, count to ten, hold your breath and fly

    Keep on climbing, though the ground might shake
    Just keep on reaching though the limb might break
    We've come this far, don't you be scared now
    'Cause you can learn to fly on the way down

    Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
    Fly
