  • Why don't you look up once in a while?
    The sky is bright, the time is?here
    Why?don't you call?him just to say hello?
    Oh, the?light was right, we all thought so

    I don't want to?take?anything?from you
    I want?to see you?living
    I want to see you through

    You waited on that plane
    You waited all night
    This place looks immaculate at four in the morning
    I need to go deeper than that

    Sometimes I look at you
    Think that I love you
    No man will ever fall for that

    I don't want to take anything from you
    I want to see you living
    I want to see you through

    Feeling [?] down to my bones
    Walking around the place that I called my home
    And isn't it amazing how the heart is changing?
    Oh, oh

    I don't want to take anything from you
    I want to see you living
    I want to see you through

    Why don't you look up once in a while?
    Oh, the sky is bright, the time is here
    Why don't you call him just to say hello?
    Oh, the light was right, we all thought so
