  • You're high upon the tower
    Now don't look down
    I will be okay here on the ground
    And you can always call
    To say hello from time to time
    When you're no longer mine

    I will be drunk on cheap beer
    Like everyone else around here
    You've got the world at your feet
    There's nothing out there for me

    You don't have to lie
    Saying that you'll try
    To make it work from a distance
    Just leave me here to die
    As I watch you climb
    Up to the top of your ambitions

    You're high upon the tower
    Now don't look down
    I will be okay here on the ground
    And you can always call
    To say hello from time to time
    When you're no longer mine

    Here in a pale shaded light
    Under the trailer park lights
    There'll be nothing left for you to see
    You won't even recognize me

    You don't have to lie
    Saying that you'll try
    To make it work from a distance
    Just leave me here to die
    As I watch you climb
    Up to the top of your ambitions

    You're high upon the tower
    Now don't look down
    I will be okay here on the ground
    And you can always call
    To say hello from time to time
    When you're no longer mine

    I always knew (I always knew) that you would follow your big dreams
    What I didn't know (I didn't know) is that your dreams never did include me

    You're high upon the tower
    Now don't look down
    I will be okay here on the ground
    And you can always call
    To say hello from time to time
    When you're no longer mine Writer/s: ALEXANDER JUNIOR GRANT, HOLLY HAFERMANN
