  • Lyrics
  • I'm gonna live my life
    Like everyday's the last
    Without a simple goodbye
    It all goes by so fast
    And now that you're gone
    I can't cry hard enough

    No I can't cry hard enough
    For you to hear me now
    Can I open my eyes
    And see for the first time
    I've let go of you like
    A child letting go of his kite
    There it goes
    Up in the sky

    There it goes
    Beyond the clouds
    For no reason why
    I can't cry hard enough
    No I can't cry hard enough
    For you to hear me now
    Can I look back in vain
    And see you standing there

    With all that remains
    Its just an empty chair
    And now that you're gone
    I can't cry hard enough
    No I can't cry hard enough
    For you to hear me now
    There it goes

    Up in the sky
    There it goes
    Beyond the clouds
    For no reason why
    I can't cry hard enough
    No I can't cry hard enough
    For you to hear me nowWriter/s: MARVIN ETZIONI, DAVID B. WILLIAMS

  • Paul S. from Pittsburgh, Pa.Actually, her version did predate The Williams Brothers by two years, so although David and Marvin Enzioni wrote it, hers is the "original"
  • Paul S. from Pittsburgh, Pa.I was thinking Victorias version was released first but I guess not. Unreal to me as a fan of hers that she and Andrew came over right after it was completed. Her version with both Williams Brothers playing/singing with her is the definitive version imo and it was my introduction to the song. Incredible too that they're not related but became friends and are apparently musical and spiritual brothers and sister. They play on a lot of her songs too.
