  • Here I am, ten stories high
    Not a single cloud in my eye
    Not a thing I'd change if I could
    I'm happy here in my neighborhood

    And all the things I've never been, I've
    Never seen, I don't care much
    And all the things I've never done, I've
    Never won, I don't care much

    Never knew what a world this was
    'Til I looked in my heart
    Saw myself for what I am
    Found a whole world in my hands

    And all the things I'm supposed to be
    And all the things that you want from me
    I don't know why, I don't know why
    I don't know why, I don't know why

    I don't need all the things you got
    I just wanna be who I want
    I don't need all the things you hold
    In high regard, they mean nothing at all

    And all the things I've never been, I've
    Never seen, I don't care much
    And all the things I've never done, I've
    Never won, I don't care much

    This village is where I'm from
    It's one place that I call home
    You wanna show me another side
    But I've got Heaven in my sights

    Never knew what a world this was
    'Til I looked in my heart
    Saw myself for what I am
    Found a whole world in my hands

    And all the things I've never seen, I've
    Never seen, I don't care much
    And all the things I've never done, I've
    Never won, I don't Writer/s: Jan Nicholas Kybert, Paul John Weller
